A Lesson in Humility and Honesty – Inspiring!

I remembered Dr. Sam declining a payment of $1,500, and talking his Muslim colleague into doing the same, because he felt it was God’s direction. I can’t think of that without tears. How can someone who needs funding for his son’s sports fees, and daily living, turn down such a huge amount? I can only conclude that the doctor has a true ‘God’ heart. He is the example of what a life lived for God should look like – a life of total humility and honesty.

I had the joy of seeing Harriet at a streetside benefit concert arranged by her son Dixion. I received many, many wonderful hugs from my dear friend. She is a miracle ... a really, truly beautiful miracle. She is thriving after the successful cancer surgery.
Harriet continues to thrive
Dixion, who is sponsored by former traveler, and current volunteer, Anna Perusse, is giving back to his community. A high school senior, he founded the Love and Care Foundation, a registered charity that provides essentials, for street children, and visiting /praying with those in the hospital.
