“I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part from him when he goes wrong” – Abraham Lincoln

More than wrestling- fishing

convoy of hope- More than wrestling


I thought that volunteering to play a few minutes with kids could change their lives. I was not sure how long that would take or if I will ever see those changes in those kids, nonetheless, I have come to see the impact they have had on me.  At the end I felt like those kids actually volunteered to teach me that serving others brings more meaning to life.
