A year is gone now since I came back from the comfortable and convenient Unites States of America. With a little hesitance and apprehension I started working for CTC. I was not sure how things will work out for my family, myself and for the big CTC family.
There was a ton of changes for all that were involved. We were not sure how things will turn out as we started together. New faces all over, big expectations and low expectations, Good things expected while others were not sure. Confidence and encouragement flowed freely from all who were involved. It was a time full of mixture of emotions.
I now look back and appreciate the opportunity to serve with CTC. We had an Ubuntu day last Saturday May 22 2010. Just a normal day when we give back to the community. But this one turned out to be an evaluation Saturday. We planted the trees as usual and then gathered together for a drink after some good hard work. One person after another gave their comments on how CTC have affected and impacted their lives in one way or the other. They all loved the work they have been doing with their own hands. A sense of pride and ownership of the good that is happening in our town. And then we wondered what the future holds for CTC in this community. There is lot of hope and expectation due to the performance of all the other activities.
Thanks to our sponsors and donors; Your work is not in vain. Through our relationships and being there to listen, many are experiencing the love and the acceptance that every human being needs, and even so those that are poor in the community that we are serving.
Being a full time community servant by profession and a minister of the gospel by calling, I love the opportunity to share this love by doing more than by words and hence the extra opportunities to tell the Story.
Our work is worth all the effort and the trouble we have to go through to accomplish the mission.
