Experiences of poverty happen everyday in America; in our own communies, some of us even experiencing poverty in our own home. Working with children in poverty, I thought I had seen the worst. That was until, I came to know the children of Ethiopia. While in Ethiopia, we were blessed to visit a 'school'. The Kind Hearts school is a place of refuge for children experiencing extreme poverty. The school was a safe haven, a place to be fed, loved, and taught. However, this school had no running water, no bathroom facilities, no kitchen, and NO books! Even without the amenities of a school as we know it, these children were proud to be there and grateful for the opportunity. As we toured the property, we discussed with the director, the group's plan to provide them with clean water and other basic needs. At every plead that the director made for our support, we assured him that God had a plan in our heart and we intended to carry it out, to which he always responded, "You promise?"

So as Robert Frost said, "I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep."
