Don’t mess with Texas (2)

Working on Friday

This morning I went to Groningen, to the Athletes in Action office over there. For those who don’t know: Groningen is far away from almost everything (except the North pole), so it was a long drive. How about that for a Friday! Usually I don’t work on Fridays, but I had planned to go with […]

Old news

Debbie mailed a couple of pictures from our DTS Outreach to Mongolia (and China, on the way back) in 2001. They bring back all kinds of memories…. Check also our other picture gallery (kind of a raw set, but worthwhile to look at). And view the clip I made afterwards…

Home alone

Inspired by Finance

Today was the day… 3 of my former colleagues visited Agape. It was an interesting meeting where we talked about vision, mission, goals, critical success factors, performance indicators… so good to be back in business for one day 🙂 We had the opportunity to share what Agape is about, and at the same time we […]
