Meet Susan

posted by David Kuo

Today’s journey took us outside Kampala’s squalor and desolation and into creation. Uganda is a land of rolling hills carpeted by rich soil that births vibrant green life. I just didn’t know that yesterday. Today though, in Kisoga, I learned […]

Poverty meditation

Several months ago I posted a story about a man in Hawaii who was giving away houses and suggested he be nominated for an award for his kindness. I haven’t paid nearly enough attention to finding such stories. I came […]
