Mercy Homes Partner Verda well Project

Our supporter Ken Panger funded 4 wells for Mercy Homes in India. The faces of these boys reflects Ken’s passion and what he’s doing for the poor in India.

The Happiest People On Earth…I think I’ve met of few of them. You know, they’re the people who get up each morning with a purpose. They’re the ones who think they can actually make a difference in our world and then go about to do just that. As we say, we can’t do it all, but we can all do something. They do something.

I’ve met some of them who’ve embraced this maxim. They are different in so many ways, but the same in that they bring their unique talents and skills to do what they can.

Some recent examples are: Ken funds wells to improve lives; Cory raises funds by running marathons, Dorie and Diana use social media to get the message out to find new supporters, Katie paints beautiful faces in hopes of donating proceeds to orphan care, Lori mobilizes her friends and family to organizes an annual 5K, the Lewis and Clark Elementary staff and students join together in the Basic Needs Virtual 5K to raise money for a building project for orphans. Others raise funds with Yoga retreats, some with Golf outings, some with Gala’s and Art Auctions…, some do casino nights… all have a passion to make a difference. Each day, the happiest people on earth put one foot in front of the other, set their course to deliberately, generously give of themselves.

I am honored to know them and excited to meet the rest of you!
