Hello Everyone!

Well, I've been back for 10 days and I still don't feel the least bit like I did before I left in November....

I just wanted to say thank you to all of you.
There is absolutely no doubt that you have changed the way a few thousand people think about themselves and about the world.
You made things better for them.
You made them smile.
Oh yeah, and you built an awesome looking hall ;-)

For me, I watched this project truly become an exchange of time, talent and treasure....we too think differently and that was the goal.
THANK YOU ANN for being such a fabulous communicator, web master and financial detail wizard!

It is clear to me that Lesotho can't have been a one time thing. So, Ann and I are heading to Peru in April to scout out the next community with which we might work. (After all, can builders of projects really go through life without seeing Machu Picchu???) The thinking is that we would schedule the project for this coming November, December and January.

In the meantime, we are looking forward to the visit from Catherine and Emmanuel, which is now scheduled for Feb 23 - Mar 14. Catherine is coming for sure, Emmanuel hopes to succeed in his third try for a visa on Monday.

You will hear from us shortly about a reunion party date.

Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication.
