What a privilege for us to enjoy a spot of variety and venue change as this trip to the GHNI Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. From there we all headed to Macon, France where we hosted over 250 delegates in “Poverty Challenges” and other venues for helping the poorest of the poor. Serving was all-inclusive for all us GHNI staff as we fed and provided all meeting arrangements for the delegates.

Smallest News(e-mail) Is Biggest News!

A little “blip” of an e-mail from our India leadership, reads …

Dear Mike(our GHNI Regional Director),

Yes, we have been able to set water committees in all the three villages we have put tube wells. We also have taken them through the TCD lessons on safe drinking water.

Regards
Sushil Marandi

At brief moments in our lives … the smallest little e-mail like this can communicate such significant “happenings” in our lives and the lives of others we work to help. You are in this also! Thanks … Dan

Training & Staff – Indonesia …

Essential to any endeavor are relationships.  Essential to any relationships are time together.  Essential to any time together is proximity.

GHNI recently brought their staff together in Indonesia, for a time of relationship building and training.  Staff from Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the USA came together to glean from each other how we can better labor together for our common goals in each country and village settings.  It was a truly good time of building into each other and establishing practices of work that simply could not have happened outside a focused time together.
