Change – so much more than a six letter word
The anticipation mounted as we made the trek to meet the family we would be building for. The chanting of “Gringa” in the streets brought a huge smile to everyone on board the truck, and none any bigger than mine. As we rounded the corner, I saw change! Sandra’s dream is coming alive. I feel warm inside and immensely happy.
The pole that once stood with a complete mess of matted electrical wires now stands with neatly strung wires. As I look to my right I see a fence around the basketball court. As we follow along our tour of the village, I also notice that individuals are sweeping their walkways, pouring cement around their homes, watering their plants and hanging their clothes out to dry. I am feeling their pride.
So yes, change is much more than a six letter word, and I feel truly blessed to have been part of this change.
