What a gift!  In January 2009 Andrew and I journeyed to Uganda.  I taught a class of truly amazing individuals with Development Associates International.  One of my standout students recently traveled to the United States with her sister-in-law, Jonas.  Jonas has become a kind of celebrity in the New Haven, Connecticut Area, as you can see by this news report.  Jonas has suffered great trauma, Jolly told us that for three years she did not smile.  Jonas smiled a good deal with us this evening.

Meeting Jonas was a gift, and seeing Jolly brought great joy to my heart.

Cole seemed to fall in love with her too.

What a gift!
