Lee Cawthon, a US Army veteran heard me share about this project in his church two years ago and immediately volunteered to come and serve with us on a long-term basis.
As I have said and written in the past, development is not a matter of simply drawing up an ideal blueprint, but, rather one of pragmatically devising a way of proceeding within the constraints and possibilities of the realities on the ground. My values in this regard can be summarized as:
- Empowering people versus enabling them.
- Preserving dignity vs. creating dependency.
- Doing things with people versus just doing things for people.
You can be part of this legacy by joining us through praying, coming to serve with us or sharing about this with others or helping financially.
