The grittiness you see in this video is one of the things I love about the northeast united states.

I also love the story behind the name deadburydead. From their website: “DeadBuryDead is from a story in the Bible that I first heard in Sunday school. And the sentiment stayed with me. As the story goes, a man came to Jesus and said he wanted to follow Him, but he couldn’t leave yet. “Let me bury my father first,” the man said, meaning he must wait until his father dies in order to collect his inheritance. Jesus replied, ‘Let the dead bury their own dead.’ Jesus was telling the man to live for the moment. If his calling was to follow Him, then he should not wait.”

Lusaka Rugby Challenge

I’ve recently had the pleasure of joining the Lusaka Rugby Club. The game is played very differently here in Zambia, but it is still the sport I love. This past weekend, the LRC hosted the 2013 Lusaka Rugby Challenge and while I didn’t play, I loved attending, watching, taking photos, and feeling a part of the team. The LRC made it to the finals, but ultimately lost 17 – 0 to the Zimbabwean Old Hararians.
