Hello friends, familia:
We are coming to our last four days of i-ACT. It has been so great to have so many of you follow us along and share in the ups and downs of visiting with our family from Darfur. I can see, from your comments, that you are also connecting with the individuals that we are meeting each day, and I believe that connecting at that, personal, level is what is needed to really become invested and motivated to act until there is true peace in Darfur.
Please tell others how you have been affected by the stories presented through i-ACT. Today, tell five people you have not told already. If you have already told everyone you know, you are going to have to start reaching out to strangers :)
Please, do not let up because you hear stories of a possible protection force going in to Darfur. We have heard this many, many times, and the killings continue. The people we meet have told us over and over again that they do not trust the Governent of Sudan, and they will not return until there is a true and effective peace keeping force.
I send you many thanks from the people we are meeting and telling them about how YOU have been standing up for and with Darfur. I have seen such sincere expressions of gratitude and, in a sense, communion when they hear of how many regular people in the US and elsewhere are acting on their behalf.
A big hug to all.
