Before getting into the meat of the episode (no pun intended), the Whole Enchilada Crew dined on six types of sopes while they heard Michael tell the story of the best Mexican food he ever had in downtown Phoenix. Michael then tells the story of his childhood, where he learned early on how to take care of himself. He made the decision to become a chef but made the mistake of taking on too much and burning out quickly. His mistake landed him addicted to drugs and homeless, merely surviving from one day to the next. A brakeless car and a phone call gave him a second chance and the opportunity to work again, although not landing exactly where he expected. On a mission trip in Cambodia, a chance encounter with two men answered the question Michael had been asking since his recovery: how can I help others?
He moved to Cambodia in 2016 and hasn’t looked back. He tells a story of leadership with a young man who needed someone to believe in him and how it changed that man’s life. Michael discusses the pandemic and how it changed the course of his mission but didn’t throw him off track.
