Thanks for the compliments. I thank God to have shown me a way to be able to help in my own way and wish many others in many communities will also have such a blessing to be able to change their communities to make our world a better place. There is this letter attached here from one of the communities we served with filters and this letter made every shade tears during our meeting. I could not believe how much we have done until when just this community expressed their feelings and joy when after myself, my US partners and many participants cried for joy. My crying was because
when I look at the small team I have as staff that are making this happen just 8 of us all together and my US partners from Thirst Relief just 6 of them through many donations from people around the world, we all felt so happy that we couldn't stand the tears.
I think from my 4 working experience in the community development in several communities and with many partnered organizations, I have learn a lot and continues to learn and listen to everyone, and I think that's what is the key of success to every person who wants to make a change.
I am also thanking you and everyone that's praying for our success because without
your prayers, we might have not been here and so I thank you all that has been able to make this happen through prayers. All I will say is that, the sky is my limit as far as I know God is leading us in every step that we take. The road hasn't been all rosery too, there have been so many challenges and like a question someone asked me, "if you are going somewhere and you crumble and fall because of rocky and hard road, what will you do?" and I said I will not abandone my journey, I will continue, because if you abandone because of the hard road, then you have failed, and so we have had difficulties in many ways that someone else might want to abandone it, but we will keep on going until we get there. So it's just the advice to each and everyone of us.
Pass this on to your friends and families who will be happy to
support us continue this amazing work to change the lives and improve
