We Ate That Elephant!!!

This is what I said with the biggest smile on my face in my video addressing all who contributed, just before catching my flight to Cameroon after 2 years. It always amazes me to see what can be done when we all come together with pure hearts for something good. In just 3 weeks, we raised over $1600, reaching our goal to complete the Light in Sight project with the Kentaja orphanage in Bandjuidjong, a small village in the West province. People tell me that they are inspired, but I am inpsired the most from this! It never fails that whenever I put myself out there for others, it comes back to reward me much more than I ever thought it would. The words that Ernest spoke to me as a Peace Corps volunteer are very alive:

“Think of others; God will think of you.”
