Happy New Year!

I hope 2010 turns out to be everything that everyone hopes for. May it bring you joy, happiness, prosperity and most of all, peace. I also hope that the new year gives us the good fortune to complete our goal of finishing the well and to further advance our school project in Tanzania so that the kids at the Sabasaba School and the Kayenze Preschool can also look back on 2010 as a special year.
