The Joy of Presence

By Ed Temple

As I anticipate the upcoming holiday season, I am excited! One of our family traditions is to celebrate Advent by planning a special family “experience” each day for the 24 days leading up to Christmas. We plan things from going to the new Star Wars movie to making homemade perogies. I love the family experiences of December!

It is the quality of our relationships and not the stuff we have that brings joy and contentment so I hope you will find time to enjoy your family, your friends and your colleagues this Christmas season! The joy of the season is the presence of our loved ones. Enjoy their presence and give yours!

Thank you for making Opportunity International a priority in your giving. With your partnership, we are changing the face of poverty for clients like Edwin. I met Edwin in Nicaragua back in April (with my son Elijah). Edwin is the proud father of 4 and received a loan from Opportunity for his home business. He dreams of growing his business and one day owning a taxi. Thank you for helping clients like Edwin through Opportunity International. We cannot help transform lives without you! Thank you!

We hope you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
