A Letter from My Sponsor
My second sponsor, Karl B., was a globe trotter. He quit his job, sold all his belongings and went around the world in search of life’s meaning. He first rode a motorcycle from Los Angeles to South America, then off to Asia, India, Spain, etc. He was gone for the better part of a year and did not stay in a hotel one single night.

It could have arrived in my mailbox at any time during my 27 years and would have had the same impact. But getting it when I was relatively new was incredible. I read it often and share it with men I sponsor if I feel they will get it. Maybe it will touch you as well:
