Three Cups of Tea

I just finished reading this really great book. (Yes, I'm always at least 6 months behind what's *new* :) It was required reading for my daughter's college last year, and I thought it would be interesting to read it too and discuss it with her. I'm so glad I did! Now I need to find the next book and devour it too :) I understand that there was some controversy surrounding the exact details in the book, but to me, what matters most is the servant's heart of Greg Mortenson and all he has accomplished for the children who can now go to school for the first time in their lives- especially girls in Afghanistan & Pakistan. I know that those countries have been torn apart by war & strife. It reminds me never ever to take for granted for the freedom & liberty we have in America ~ and that knowledge is power! I plan to support this effort in the near future with more than just my prayers. Check it out :) ><>
