when we got there we were ushered into council chambers where there was the entire city of Tokmok's city councilors and administrators there along with the local press. The council meeting was opened, and then they began to read out a list of things that we had been involved with in Tokmok... ( or at least what they knew about) many of the things I had forgotten about , but they hadn't. We were then called forward, and presented Honorary social certificates by the council chair, then publicly thanked by the mayor as well.

.. And as far as education goes, one is quickly rising to the top when it comes to quality , and integrity.. and that is IUCA. For many of the kids we help... this is the key to a new life. The amazing thing is that the University had such a burden for the kids here that they take students soly based their potential of circumstances and not based on their ability to pay... I know of no other University that operates in such a way, but with people like David at the lead, I am not surprised.
