Wow and congratulation Robbin! It is wonderful to learn about all that you have accomplished and will continue. It was so impressive hearing about how you came to have this fabulous goal of making changes in Africa especially Rwanda. After seeing you in Cobleskill at the reunion a few years ago I had no idea when I talked to you about speaking to our small church about your goals and program. As one of many of your instructors from years ago it is nice to hear about your success and your plans to change the lives of woman. It is certainly something to be proud of as a child of God to actually do something and not just talk about it. God bless you and continued success. Karen Collins
