The wolves are at the door .

An old Cherokee told his grandson "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil... It is ANGER ,JEALOUSY, GREED, RESENTMENT , INFERIORITY , LIES and EGO. the other is GOOD.... It is JOY, PEACE, LOVE , HOPE, HUMANITY, KINDNESS, EMPATHY and TRUTH..
The boy thought about it and then asked " Grandfather, which wolf wins ?" .. the old man quietly responded ..." The one you feed."

I just read this on a friends FB status. It made me think about all our kids at university right now. So many incredible young men and women with such potential and such a desire to improve their country . But which wolf will WE feed. Will we step forward to feed the Good wolf , making it possible for them to go to school and follow their dreams , or will we feed the BAD wolf by doing nothing .. buy saying "yes somebody should help them" but doing nothing ourselves. As I am writing this, Bekah is on line with a fine young man who is short on his tuition to return to school .. here is his Biography.. it almost looks like it has been made up for the benefit of the reader, but we can assure you that this is true and is from his heart.. this is a young man who is already following his dream to help others , but rather then asking for money year after year . he is looking for help to become self sufficient...
There are a few ways that we can help...
1. you can make a donation right now to meet this immediate need of $250 ,
to sign up as a $50/ month sponsor to help Akyl , and many others like him, or
3. what could actually be the biggest help.... have me send you some brochures, posters and video's , and join the team of LAMb sponsorship reps and TRY to find just 12 monthly sponsors.
