How an Unexpected Encounter Made a World of Difference
  • By Pamela Schaafsma

Discover how we too can experience the true happiness sometimes thought to be unattainable.

It all starts in a small town in Zimbabwe, when Patrick bumps into an American tourist. From a bleak, dreary place in Africa, Patrick displays pure contentment. Follow along as events unfold and we get to know this mysterious man from across the globe. Patrick is the ultimate pen pal, as he shines intensely bright from a desolate place of darkness.
