We believe communities rise or fall based on leadership.
It can be seen throughout history and it can be seen today.
Right now as you're reading this email there are unrecognized community leaders all over the world who are laying down their lives to serve their people. Many have broken out of the poverty cycle themselves, but instead of forgetting the challenges of their youth, they've returned to their villages and home towns to help the next generation follow their lead.
They're declaring a better future not just for themselves, but for others too.
They've started small organizations with big visions and built teams of average people with above average hearts. They're taking care of orphans and widows, the sick and the downtrodden. They're taking on incredible foes like malaria, typhoid, AIDs and unclean drinking water... just to name a few. It's an up hill battle, but day by day they're winning.
Tenacity & Persistence, Wisdom & Knowledge, Patience & Love… these are a few of the reasons. But above all I think it's their Faith.
They see things not as they are, but as they could be and they live each day to make it so.
They are leaders of Faith.
