Hello reading friends,
The people have spoken and a bridge it will be! Has this turn of events surprised you? I encourage you to take a look at the photos in the middle of the book.....check out the people carrying the wood 18 miles (page 5 in the photo section)! I admire their strength, both physically and mentally. I don't believe I could carry their load 18 miles. However, a bridge is the link to connect them to the rest of their world.
I was reviewing the "Three Cups of Tea" website. If you haven't already been on that site I encourage you to check it out, www.threecupsoftea.com. The site has some great tips and ideas on how we can each be a part of Greg Mortenson's service-learning programs. One that is of particular interest to me is the , "Pennies for Peace" campaign. I thought it would be fun to do a mini campaign ourselves. What do you think? One penny may not seem like a lot of money but several containers of pennies can really add up! When we meet next week I'll have a small "Pennies for Peace" container for each of you. Let's challenge ourselves to each take a container, share the Pennies for Peace campaign story with others and be a part of educating children half-way around the world! Remember, no gift is ever too small and you can't get much smaller than a penny contribution!
Enjoy the journey!
