Guess who I saw today?
That was the subject line on an email I got todayfrom a friend in Bishkek . the email went on to read"He still remembers the boots that you gave him two years ago!He send his greetings to you too!"
I have to admit that as hard as I try I can not rememberthis man. We try to keep contact with the people that wehelp, but some times we loose contact, or maybe we helpedthrough someone else I am just not sure . I can't even place
the circumstances of this gift, but HE DOES. Maybe
one of you remember and can refresh our memory.
Is that not the beauty of what we do .. the beauty of HOPE.for two years now, the impact of that encounter has lived on
with this man.
He has remembered that someone reached out to himevery time he has put his boots on. it is a little nuggetof strength that he has carried with him on his daily struggle ..
although I do not remember him myself, it gives me comfortto know that the gift was given on behalf ofthe ONE that does remember ..
