When we visited the kindergarten class they were all attentively watching their teacher, counting in unison, saying A B C's etc. When they finished, they clapped their hands in unison and loudly chanted "WE'LL DONE! WELL DONE! SUCH A GOOD GIRL/BOY!" Absolutely adorable with 100 little brown-eyed charmers!

Ireen the Child Support Specialist (CSS) group chairperson in Kasompe arrived Saturday morning with her bag of supplies and immediately jumped right in playing with the children gathered outside who were all either past or present support group participants. Ireen has 3 biological children and one orphan she cares for that she calls her own child. Her husband died 4 years ago just before her last child was born and a few months later her father died unexpectedly.
She said that she is a CSS because she knows the pain that these children are feeling and can be a support as someone who truly understands. What a wonderful example she is for these children of not allowing pain and heartache to define you, but to weave it into your story in a way that is life-affirming.

|Run, Jeff, Run!|
He did it! He ran the good race in the cool of the Colorado mountains this week and finished to the applause of all of his fans. Amazingly he INCREASED his HealthEd Connect goal several times while he was in training and came very near his final goal of $5,000. He's hoping a few procrastinators will still come through and push him over the top. If you'd like to help Jeff (and HealthEd Connect) go to www.HealthEdConnect and click on the Donate Button. Jeff's Run is in the drop-down menu for designations. What an amazing achievement -- both the marathon and the money raised! Congratulations, Dr. Jeff Manuel!!
