Photos are from Heifer's Africa Area Program meeting.

I know I was just waxing poetic about Heifer's Africa staff, but I hope you'll humor me one more time. I just got back from the Heifer Uganda staff meeting. Folks, these people are enthusiastic about their work. Nobody complained about coming in for a meeting on a Sunday so Pierre and Sahr could be there to participate.

It was probably the best meeting I've ever attended. There was such an energy in the room, I could feel it in my core, and I'm still geeking out over it. If it weren't for my love for the family I've built, I could do this all the time. I've always had a passion for Heifer, and being here has truly fueled the fire. Pierre has great ideas, and they fit so well with the needs and the wants of the Africa staff.

Let's scale things up, let's demonstrate true excellence, let's build on what we've already done and deepen our impact.
