In 2004, a fourth-generation dairy farmer from Wisconsin embarked on a ten-day journey to Togo, Africa, which changed his life forever. This is his story and the lessons learned from an unforgettable pilgrimage to the other side of the world.
Encouraged by his mentor's words-all great men and women make a habit of doing something greater than themselves-Hank Wagner took off on an eighteen-hour flight to Africa and began recording his thoughts and observations in a travel diary. From the moment he awakened in his hotel room and looked out the window to see guards armed with machine guns patrolling the parking lot, to the potholes on the dirt roads that were large enough to swallow an entire vehicle, to the sobering realization that he would rarely be able to use a real bathroom in Africa, Wagner shares his eye-opening experiences and life-changing lessons from his journey through some of the poorest parts of Africa.
