Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Nicholas Duncan joins me this week to talk about his book: Tales From A Muzungu
Imagine you are on a plane to a destination you know very little about. On top of that, you don't know anyone else, will be living there for two years, only have a vague idea of what you will be doing, or if it was the right decision. A major comfort is knowing that you aren't the only person having anxiety during this scenario. This is just the beginning of a Peace Corps volunteer’s service. Tales from a Muzungu is about a Peace Corps Volunteer’s two year experience (2010 – 2012) in Uganda. Nicholas Duncan covers the highs and lows of life in Africa by detailing the atmosphere of Uganda and the day to day life of a volunteer. Nicholas writes about his experience with non-profits, adjusting to deep village life, and the surprises of being a muzungu in Africa.

Back for a second week going to San Nicholas, Argentina. On the 13th of October, anniversary of the last appearance at Fatima, the Virgin spoke for the first time:
You have done well. Do not be afraid. Come to see me. I will take you by the hand and you will travel many paths.
After the message the Virgin refers to a message from the Bible, the word of God that illuminates all word. With this text she is encouraged to fulfill her mission, to take her messages although difficulties may appear. Thereafter, she begins to receive other messages frequently. On October 19th, She said to her:
Rebels are unjust and humble the servants of the Lord. Seek help and you will receive it. Do not fear. Nothing will happen to you. The Lord leaves nothing at random.
On October 25th, Gladys goes for the second time, since the apparitions started, to the city of Rosario, seat of the archbishop, city consecrated to Our Lady of the Rosary. That day, exactly a month to the day of the first apparition, the Virgin appears to her and She tends a white rosary to her: Receive this rosary from my hands and keep it forever and ever. I am happy because you are obedient. And be happy because God is with you.
The messages continue, with frequent references to the Sacred Scriptures. It is that Mary leads to the word of God and this way continues her invitation, as she did to the servants of Cana: "Do all that He tells you". This one is a new and singular fact in the history of the Marian apparitions.
Our Life Lessons from Veterans series continues with Val Nicholas. Val now serves in a leadership role for the American Legion, GotYour6.org and the USO, on top of being an executive for NBC/MSNBC.

Aaron Shepard's The Baker's Dozen: A Saint Nicholas Tale. Van Amsterdam the baker was well known for his honesty as well as for his fine Saint Nicholas cookies.
