Thanks, Azania, for your kind words!
I really hope I will be able to come back soon as an active neighbour like you and all the others!
See you soon, and welcome again, Tanvir!
One day, a poor boy who was selling goods from door to door to
pay his way through school found he had only one thin dime
left, and he was hungry.
He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house.
However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the
door. Instead of a meal, he asked for a drink of water.
She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of
milk. He drank it slowly and then asked, "How much do I owe
"You don't owe me anything," she replied. "Mother has taught us
never to accept pay for a kindness." He said, "Then I thank you
from my heart." As Howard Kelly left that house, he not only
felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and man was
strong also. He had been ready to give up and quit.
Many year's later that same young woman became critically ill.
The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the
big city where they called in specialists to study her rare
disease. Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation.
When he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange
light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the
hall of the hospital to her room. Dressed in his doctor's gown
he went in to see her.
He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation
room determined to do his best to save her life.
From that day he gave special attention to her case.
After a long struggle, the battle was won.
Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill
to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on
the edge and the bill was sent to her room.
She feared to open it, for she was sure it would take the rest
of her life to pay for it all.
Finally she looked and something caught her attention on the
side of the bill. She read these words, "Paid in full with one
glass of milk"
(Signed) Dr. Howard Kelly.
Tears of joy flooded her eyes as her happy heart prayed:
"Thank You, God, that Your love has spread abroad through
human hearts and hands." 8-)
I'd like to help for awhile... in Tanvir's absence.
Hi ... William and Mary...and all faithful member of Wambaale Village!
William, as Local Representative for Wambaale, and Mary, as its most faithful neighbor (Nabuur,) please let me know, in brief summary, where we are...and where we want to go, in the next 10 days or so.
Things have been going wonderfully here with your help. Next steps please?
Many thanks! I hope I can help things move along successfully over the next week or so while Tanvir must be away.
Thank you so much for helping Tanvir in his village. People like you make the Facilitator team feel like a real team, almost a family.

Welcome to you both. We need your help!
Right now, we need NGO Affiliation for Wambaale, which will allow them to receive donations to be transmitted via credit card.

Let's pray for him and his country's health.
Keep up the great work William and Mary...:lol:...they'll name a college after you!
I am going away tomorrow and will be back on Friday or Saturday. Thought I would let you know so that you don't think I have disappeared!
[b]William and Neighbors of Wambaale...again, until Tanvir's connectivity problems ( associated with the heat in Pakistan) [global wrmeing worldwide?] are solved, and he can get back toWambaale regularly, I am here. Ask for anything you need.[/b]
Welcome to Nabuur...and Wambaale Village!
It's a litle quite, as Mary is away for a couple more days...
Take this time to acquaint yourselves with all that's gone one in Wambaale...and then decide...
What would YOU like to do?
We are delighted to have you as a neighboort of Wambaale...and it is really all up to YOU!
It has been my pleasure to serve. I'll stick around until Friday, June 30.
Tanvir, hope the people are not suffering too much there.
Take it easy.
I hope you and the people of Pakistan have experienced some relief from the heat and connectivity difficulties...and... that YOU will be back very soon.
Hope your family is well, too.
