It never ceases to amaze me what the work of a few dedicated people can do. Last night I met some of the women I will be traveling with to Cameroon. Monique, Danielle, Isabelle, Rhonda, Dietra and Christina. They hosted a wonderful event in Houston to help build the orphanage in Cameroon. It was a great success. The silent auction went well, Monique and friends secured more than 60 items and people were milling about all evening.

The food: Delicious. Ouisie’s Table donated delightful wines and food. The Alliance Francaise provided space for the event and volunteers tore down, set up and worked the floor all night.

Monique’s last words to me last night: “I am happy.” The children will be blessed.
