Developing WISDOM

Wisdom is looking at life from God’s point of view. Chuck Swindoll

Wisdom can come at any age. It's inspiring to see a young one see life as God sees it. 

The Living Well team was at the airport, May 29, 2013. They were gathering up, ready to check in for their long flight to Zambia.

The family of one of the women was there - husband and two little girls. When the 10-year-old daughter was asked what she thought about her mom going to Africa, she didn't say a word, tears just welled up in her eyes.

Her mother had a life-changing experience and shared all about it with her family. When that 10-year-old, Allison, had her 11th birthday the next March, she didn't want presents. Instead she asked all of her friends and family if they would donate to WISDOM Community School instead.

Allison's family and friends donated generously for her birthday. Allison gave up any dreams she had of more "stuff" for herself, to help poor children in a slum in Africa go to school. 

Allison sees life from God's point of view! She is contributing to the development of WISDOM Community School.

That's what it means to "Develop Wisdom" both for a person and for a school!
