Debbie and I are in Tahoe, Nevada (Incline Village to be exact) with about 30 people who are doing various forms of missional work, art or social enterprise. Most are working in USA but there are others here doing incredible things in Nepal, Uganda, and even a snowboarding ministry in New Zealand.

We are staying in a nice hotel and getting spoiled. Meetings are informal and friendly and Debbie is having a really great time. Julie from Houston is watching our kids in Scotland and I think its been about 3 years since Debbie and I have got away together like this.


Andrew Jones has been blogging since 1997. He is based in San Francisco with his two daughters but also travels the globe to find compelling stories of early stage entrepreneurs changing their world. Sometimes he talks in the third person. Sometimes he even talks to himself and has been heard uttering the name "Precious" :-)
