Somewhere over the Atlantic Ocean
Hi, all -
It's Saturday and I’m on a plane to London , where I transfer and take a second flight to Uganda . I’m excited about this first opportunity to visit that country. I’ll be training Save the Children’s emergency response team for Africa – a couple people each from Sudan , Malawi , Uganda , Ethiopia , etc. Should be fun, just like the one we did last month in Asia and the one in August in Latin America. The best part is when the trainees go back to their home countries and put their skills to use right away. The bad part is there are lots of emergencies giving them the opportunity to practice.
QIVC, established in 2000, is a community of 30 people of all ages living close to the land on 135 acres of forest and pasture in the upper Hudson Valley. We strive to live spirit-focused lives that are simple, sustainable, and joyful, benefitting from and enjoying our close connections with each other and the land. We welcome diversity of all sorts, and don't all need to identify as Quaker.
