In October of 2010 I was blessed to be able to visit the village of "Dube Bute." It is a 6 hour drive out of the main city of Addis Ababa and then a 1 hour walk into the village. During my visit my life was changed. As I witnessed first hand the way these people lived it changed me and my heart in a great way. Do you know what amazed me most about these people? The fact that most of them had never seen white people, yet when they saw us, they had HOPE. Hope that we would help them and save lives for them. They all had "hope" because they knew white people had discovered there village. Little kids who were hungry, thirsty, unloved, sick, and unclothed were laughing and smiling. They were happy. They were thankful for the life they have. What about you? Would you be happy in these circumstances? If you were hungry, thirsty, sick, and had no clothes? I don't think so. They were even happy with the mud water they have to drink and yes, it is mud water (check out some of my pictures.....) By visiting these people I made them happy and gave them hope. So, that day my life changed. I realized that they are way less fortunate than probably almost everyone in America, yet they are still happier than most of us. They are literally suffering, but still have smiles on all their faces. Watching thousands of people follow us everywhere we went because they had hope in us is just amazing. I am trying to raise money to build wells for them so they have clean water, schools so they may become educated, health care so the sick can be healed, and a vet so they can have healthy animals. I can't do this alone though, so I need your help. Are you willing to help MAKE A DIFFERENCE? Thank You For more information on Dube Bute please visit the "parent Campaign" and read the Alexanders story. Because of them I was able to be part of this AMAZING adventure!
