About the Author
In over sixty countries, John has made contributions as a teacher, trainer, project director, writer and a working volunteer involving service, education and sports programs. He feels fortunate that his work, his concerns and passions often align. Over the past three decades he has been drawn to serve in areas noted for their history of violence and religious struggle, as well as to a wide variety of indigenous communities.
For years, John was one of a team who worked to design service programs that encourage mutual respect and cooperation between those of different religions, cultures and nationalities. By shoveling soil and moving bricks in over 40 countries, John, other volunteers and community members built not only clinics, schools and physical structures but bonds of trust and new friendships worldwide.
