What I learned this week in life.

People believe in me.
People support me.
People sacrifice for me.

I am loved.

To all those people, thank you.

Thank you for encouraging me to do what I love, for listening to me talk with passion about life, for allowing me to be me.

I don't know how I would have survived alone because you made life survivable, thank you.

To all those of you I talked to this last week, whether for 2 min or for 2 hours, thank you.
You are part of something bigger than yourself, part of something bigger than me, something bigger than starting an orphanage from scratch in Tanzania. You are part of the body of Christ.

"In fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as He wanted them to be. If they were all one part, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, but one body"
1 Corinthians 12:18-20
