Yesterday we did our first presentation at a church! It went pretty well, but we still have a lot of work to do on it. Afterwards, a businessman from that area came up and volunteered to help us make our presentation better! So he came in later that day and gave us a "Sales 101" class, to teach us the basic principles of presentations. So thanks Larry for all of your help!
Afterwards, we went to a church BBQ and talked to a lot of people. There was a Christian Motorcycle Association there that was really interested, and a lot of people were touched by the stories from the Congo. We can really see God moving here.
Today we woke up around 7am and had a three hour long first aid and CPR training. Now I feel equipped to handle any nosebleed or sprained ankle that might come our way. Also, I decided that I am not going to try and do the whole bike trip only drinking soda. Apparently that's not good for you. Also, we asked Bill and Nanette (the best CPR teachers that most of us have ever had!) what you do if two people need CPR and you are the only one to help. Do you choose one or do you go back and forth? Bill said that you just have to pick one.
As you can imagine, this causes a very serious moral dilemma that could be very detrimental to the team dynamic. So we (Mark and I) decided that we need to make a priority list of who should be saved over who so that in the event of a "choose," there would be no moral consequences. This is the list: (If you who are following the blog have suggestions/reasons as to how we might improve this priority list, please comment below.
