Finally, I had the opportunity to visit the TWR head office in Cary, North Carolina. Marli Spieker and I were able to pick up our conversation right we left off, a month ago in Thailand. I have corresponded for some time with the Project Hannah team so it was so great to finally meet Tina, Peggy and Anne. The staff meeting on Thursday morning was spent reviewing the work of Project Hannah in Asia and I had the joy of sharing the stories of several of the listeners that I met in Nepal.

TWR has a wonderful Lodge for visiting staff and guests, which is beautifully situated in a very quiet wooded area. It was so restful that I think I actually made up for some of my sleep deficit. A chance guest this week was Christine, the most amazing lady who heads up Project Hannah in Liberia. We all were delighted as she shared her story with us over a lovely lunch.

I finished up my stay there with a quiet evening visiting with Edmund and Marli in their lovely home. Anyone who spends even a brief amount of time listening to Marli’s passion to help women marginalized by poverty, disease and cultural tradition can not help but be touched. It was great to talk with her about plans for Project Hannah and I must admit that I am getting a little anxious to get back to work in Asia.
