Grattitude

Outside is dark, cold and rainy.....I have had a beautiful long day, my dogs are barking, the chimneys are whistling, the wind is whispering...and I am at my bed trying to read some more stories, thinking of all of you girls wishing you the best in all your countries. Without notice you became part of my life, and now I missed you as if I have known you for years. I have not had the pleasure to read all your stories, I wish....but every day I am searching my email trying to find out any news about you.

You became part of my life, part of my daily life and I am so grateful because I feel we all are connected with a purpose...there might be many people getting connect it out there in our planet, but I feel we together have something deeper, bigger, more beautiful.

I have a strange feeling for each of you. Your faces and names and even your countries get sometimes confused in my mind, but I have a strong feeling for our work together and for what we have accomplished.

Three woman might go representing us to USA and they will take our hearts and soul to some other woman and people who might be willing to change woman lives everywhere.....for sure it could be any of us....being part of the 30 has to make us believe to be stronger in what we believe. We have to keep working as everyday. It is hard but worth it!!! I feel proud of being part of the 30 and the 6.....it is an honor... I feel that together we can change the world.....

With respect for all of you beautiful woman

Martha

Yes these three represents us:):):)

Dear Friend!

How wonderful and how great is it to hear these touching words from you . When i read this i remembered.........! something triggered into my mind. Oh all my beautiful friends, how lovely, how sweet were their voices, how powerfully they marvelled at their situations in their respective countries. mmm! how they opened my eyes.Really empowerment and knowledge is all that we want to help sort out our communities.

Am still excited with the encounter from World Pulse.As long as there is still health and breath in me i will work for humanity.
So many people right where we stay are suffering, they are helpless, in need, in want, clothes, shelter and food, and othe challenges that causes pain to people.

This is wonderful my dear Martha, keep writing, your heart yearns for more i can see. May God take you to another breakthrough.As for the three women, lets say we wish them the best and may by his grace accomplish all the mission for wp.

Stay blessed

Hi Martha!

I have read your posts ... well, many of them, particularly the entries, and so many times your testimonies made me cry ... sometimes angry, sometimes just plain unhappy! You have such a strong voice ... well, each of us have our own strengths. Together we will rise and conquer. United we stand, united we soar! All the best...

Always,
Emie Zozobrado

Together we can change the

Together we can change the world. We put our hands together and will walk side by side. Only three will go to US but they carry the voices of 30+ women.

Every time I check my mails, I go through it just hoping to see a mail with the unique name, but did I expect to receive it or its am still yearning for more? didn’t get the answer till now.
Love,
RA

How lovely....

Congratulations on being one of the Voices of Our Future that will speak for all the rest of these Voices of Our Future that learned more about lifting their voice and be heard. I know that you will keep everyone close to your heart as you tour this fall. Remember the stories and the friendships and share forward all these gifts of friendship and learning and grace!

Good luck!
