This past year has been one of great changes in me.

When I joined the course I was looking for a way to educate myself so that I could be in a position to help myself - to take care of my family and perhaps to be able to earn something small. Something miraculous happened over the year. I changed, my thinking changed, my perspectives changed, my attitudes changed. And as I changed, the world around me changed too. From focusing inwards all the time I began to focus outwards, I saw that I was not the only one with problems and they were others far worse off than I was. When I stopped focusing on the problem and let God have his way. Wonderful things started to happen. While this course really is all about reaching out to others, a spiritual change starts to take place in us.. I have reached a stage in my life now when earning a living is not so important any more. I understand that I am in God's hands and there is nothing that will happen to me that I cannot cope with. I also have come to embrace the idea of service. So much of joy and fulfillment comes from from service. This is something I read recently. "True fulfillment comes from find out what God's purpose for you is and then doing just that."
