Only a few months before, John Nelson had been a preacher's kid in Seattle with a police record. Now, because of his father's ministry, John is on the Arusha plains of Tanzania photographing an exorcism. And that is just one of the adventures he will encounter while on another continent. From the wildly beautiful savannah, to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, to a boarding school near Nairobi, John will experience the wonders of the world and be forced to confront a spiritual reality that he had previously chosen not to accept. Years later, John will reunite with his old classmates, and find himself immersed in memories, brought on by Going Back to Africa.
John Nelson is a native of Washington state where his parents were in full-time Christian ministry for twenty-two years before leaving for central Africa in 1972. John graduated from Rift Valley Academy (class of 1974) in Kijabe, Kenya, and received his Bachelor's degree from Seattle Pacific University in 1979.
Today, John is an accomplished photographer and credit union mortgage consultant. John and his family live and work in Palm City, Florida and he makes no apologies for the wonderful year-round weather and the great offshore fishing!
