Once you are there you willbe told exactly what to do".Narrator 2:His fellow travellers led him by the hand and brought himto Damascus.He was three days without his sight and three days...............without anything to eat and drink.Narrator 3:[I bet that was more effective than the Atkins diet][Piano play the last 2 bars of 'Flash, Bang' as the scene closes.]

Narrator 1: And so Paul's famous travels began.In total he covered 20,000 miles in these journeys.First of all he spent three years in that Arabian desert justthinking about what was going on and what he was going to do.Narrator 2: Perhaps this is part of the key to the whole thing.Instead of rushing into new ventures perhaps we should bemore like Paul and spend time thinking .......and planning ...........before we try to inflict our change on other people.
