As I begin my finial preparations, I find myself overwhelmed with gratitude. Each one of you reading this has played a part in the fulfillment of this dream. One by one God has but in place a sacred community that holds me. There is an African proverb that says "it takes a whole village to raise a child". Well it has taken a whole village to raise this woman. My prayer is to be the hands and feet of the One who has called me. I will carry each one of you with me on this journey.
