The Earth Expedition Recruits 3rd Hiker Daniel Frazier! To get to know him a little please feel free to read his bio below. Also we will be firming up detals this next mont so stop back in a couple of days for updates!
I was born on and raised on the bluffs of
the Mississippi River, in Memphis, Tennessee under the parental brilliance of
Dan and Lee Ann Frazier and beside the love of two beautiful sisters, Katherine
and Abigail. I grew up and went to the
same school for 12 years, Evangelical Christian School. At that school I learned how to grow up and
also how to write papers really well.
After school was done, in my late teen years, I enrolled at the
University of Memphis. Attended school
for two years there, had a great time, but learned my life was meant for
something bigger than a typical one.
During that time at school I also started traveling with some good
friends in a band called Cool
Hand Luke, along
our travels together I learned alot about myself. I realized that I had a desire and passion
for the lives of others, to be in their life where they were, to love them when
they need it. So I left school and moved
to England, to attend a Bible school there and learn about the greatest lover
of all and also what He meant to me.
What a wonderful experience that was, it taught me so much and also I
grew more and more.
After that schooling and a bit of farming
was done I set out on my own into the foreign lands of the continent of
Europe. I had nothing but a backpack and
a guitar and ended up living an experience that changed me and my perception of
things. During that trip all I could do
was put faith in the LORD above to get by and lets just say I got by in a way I
would have never imagined. Some of the
stories and experiences from that will be with me for the rest of my life. So after that I moved to Nashville, Tennessee
to finish what I started at the University of Memphis. But still something was pulling at me to do
something, to help someone, to love people.
I wasn't, I was just surviving and it was eating away inside of me. So one day I read about Daren Wendell and
what he was doing and I sent him a letter.
I told him I want to be apart of change, I want to inspire, I want to
love. We talked and talked and now here
I am embarking my twenty second year of life hopefully about to fulfill an
incredible story that can cause change for people who need it and inspire
people as well to love those around them.
