"When magic becomes reality...and reality becomes a dream", says Araceli

Dear Rafiki

we are all happy for Araceli who is meeting her rafiki in Kenya and we cannot wait to hear how the experience has been.

this morning I received a wonderful email from Araceli and would liek to just share a part so it can heighten our desire to know how her trip to lungalunga has been.

In her email to me Araceli partly says "...I am back in Nairobi and I have tears in my eyes remembering the times in Lungalunga. I have MANY MANY pictures of all the beautiful Rafikis, and of Judy and Bendettah; amazing women all of them! I still need time to process the experiences I am having and to write about them with calm, but I would like to share with you the moment my Rafiki Mariam and I met in front of all the other Rafiki in Godo. We huged very very tight, we danced and danced together with a slow motion from one side to the other, like in wave of love and sisterhood while all the other Rafiki laughed so hard that almost cried; all of us cried and laughed with excitment...".

I cannot wait to see the photos nad here more about the experience. I believe ecvery other rafiki in this amazing club is waiting in anticipation

Big thanks to Araceli

So inspiring

This warms my heart and I can't wait to see Araceli's photos. I could not stop smiling at the image of her dancing with Rafiki Miriam. She has had a most fruitful trip indeed, bringing great joy with her as she connects with so many PulseWire members. She is an inspiration to us all.

It is real

Dearest Janice,

I have also been inspired by Araceli's trip and I can't wait to see the photos and hear from her in person. I spoke to her shortly yesterday as she was leaving lungalunga to mainland Mombasa so she could catch a bus to Nairobi. I so happy dear. For me it is like seeing my baby learning to walk. That is the feeling I have and i treasure it

I am so happy that Rafiki is actually breaking barriers and building bridges just like I mentioned in one of my posts earlier as I joined worldpulse.
