Joel, a childhood friend of Chase’s, an engineer, and native of Uganda joins us. Joel shares the story of his family moving to the United States, what it was like getting thrown into Colleyville lifestyle, how friendships made his transition easier, his thoughts on the effects of social media around the world, and what American and Uganda cultures could learn from one another.
We discuss how Joel gained contentment even with him moving to an upper-class city in the States, living a purpose driven life, Chase’s admiration for Joel’s commitment and sincerity for the Gospel despite the option to conform to the values/pursuit of the American dream, how to enjoy but not idolize things, balance of work and relationships, America teaching Joel how to be antisocial, stress being present in Uganda and America, and enjoying the moment.
