Global Leadership Summit Location Decision Countdown...

In the next week I should find out where IN THE WORLD I'm going to take the Summit this fall.

Some people have asked me where I want to go.
I'm open to wherever the Willow Team will send me. I have zero cross cultural experience, am a woman and only speak English and understand some Spanish. So, I decided not to weigh in on the decision making process. I also did this because I really do want an adventure and for a change don't want to be in control of the plan...
This whole thing is such a gift from God, I'm just praying for the right choice.

On the Global Leadership Site these are the new global sites which were requesting the Summit this year, so they should be among my options:
Cuba, Costa Rica, Columbia, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Tanzania, Egypt, Spain, France, Italy, Romania, Israel, Egypt, United Arab Emerits, China, Cambodia, Japan.

As I look at the list, I do have a couple of favorites now though... Italy, Cuba and Israel, but as I look at the list again, I just mostly can't believe that I get to play a tiny role in equipping leaders in any of these places around the world.

So, where do you think I'm going? If you guess right, I'll bring you back something!

If it were me, I would want to go to Israel. I was there in 97 and I would go back in a second. In fact, I would love to live there. There is so much to see and the feeling of being in the land of the Bible is unlike any other feeling I have ever had. Stepping foot on the Mt. of Olives and looking upon the city, just as Jesus did, brought me to tears.
So that is my guess for you.

Japan. You should also take Kurt to see where good cars are made.

I was going to say japan, as well ... extremely safe, and you are closer than those in the eastern half of the country. But if there can't be duplicates, then I'll say Cambodia for the second reason, but not the first. AmyE
