One Village tour

Tonight I could not sleep, because I keep seeing the faces of the children I have met in undeveloped over looked regions of the world. The faces that speak to me about the need for hope and care.

If this life is a gift, then why do so many go with out food and water?

The questions I ask drive me to believe.

I want to participate in what God is doing in this world. As I participate in creating a organization based on the simple idea of "one at a time" there is a hint of doubt creeping in.

Was I too hasty in taking this jump, this leap into the abyss of the unknown?
Did I start something I could not sustain?
Will I be able to focus now when choices feel urgent and the need for focus is clear?

YES, yes, no..

Do I want to quite? NO!
Do I want to do anything else? NO!

The question i asked ten months ago is still the question that comes back to me when I am faced with an important decision. "what can I do?" It is one thing and on march first 2007 it was start a coffee roasting business with a cause. Provide fresh craft roasted coffee with a cause. support sustainable development in the overlooked regions of the world through strategic partnerships. Change the world one village at a time.

Lofty, weird, sometimes confusing... Yes, but it is what I wake up with and when i fall asleep this is on my mind.

I hear the voices and I see the faces. i do not expect people to feel what I feel, but I can not ride myself of this burden, so i will gracefully carry it and I will do everything in my power to do one thing to make a difference.
