Upon returning from Global Youth Village (GYV) it almost feels like I never left. Even throughout this past week, I have been in close contact with many of the participants. While the Iraqis are enjoying their home-stays in D.C., Pittsburgh, Kansas City, and Little Rock, Arkansas...the Indonesians have finally made it home safely. And the American participants? Well, we are back to our usual routines. But I know we would all agree that we will carry those two weeks with us wherever we go.
In the past few days, I have been contacted by a large number of GYV participants who wish to expand NewView to their friends, schools, and communities. The motivation is contagious. The hope is incredible. And the enthusiasm is inspiring. Thank you to all.
