Back in the saddle...
Here's a note from Kate Welp, director of Rochester-based Hands for Humanity, a medical relief organization that through the efforts of one volunteer is reaching out to assist with relief in south Asia:
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful people can make a difference, in fact it is the only thing that ever has." Margaret Mead
This quote is so appropriate for all of you! Because of everyone's giving spirit, we have raised almost $16,000 for the relief efforts.
Nish Gunawardena began his journey to Sri Lanka Saturday. Nish faces a daunting task but he left with much confidence because of the overwhelming support you have given him. That support has allowed him to leave with a peaceful heart and the strength he needs to persevere.
Thanks to each and everyone of you.
Please let me know if anyone would be interested in traveling to Sri Lanka in the future for a possible mission trip. We are in the early phases of discussing this awesome opportunity.
