Bruce's weight before the mission trip: 173.4 lbs
Bruce's weight after the mission trip: 169.6 lbs.

I lost almost 4 pounds on the mission trip. That's the equivalent of more than 14,000 calories.

One of our fun activities on the trip was to visit the farm run solely by Gertrudis's uncle. He rides a bicycle several miles each day on a dirt road to get back and forth from town to the farm. And his farm has no electricity or running water, so he must do everything by hand.

Through our translators, Gertrudis and Raphael, I asked how old he is and learned he's 69. I then commented that he must be in really good shape, and asked if he knows that in America, our leading cause of death is from heart disease, which is usually related to obesity.
