|In 1992 at the urging of my good friend Bill Bynum I made
my first trip to work overseas in the Czech Republic. The six-week
effort was one of the greatest experiences of my life. Since then I
have made regular trips to various foreign countries every year possible and
hope to do so as long as I am able. Since that time I have taken
monthly trips each year possible--to the Czech Republic (1993), The Republic of Moldova (eight times
between 1994-2007), and Ukraine (2003).
