It’s hard to believe that I completed my research in CBBA. Now comes the fun part…analysis and write up. I learned so much from the Early Encounter team, I don’t know where to begin. I suppose focusing on the generosity of the team is a good place to start. Everyone was incredibly generous with their time despite a very hectic month of multiple activities. I am grateful for their willingness to help teach me and join me in this discovery process. I am also grateful to the children and staff of the individual projects. They opened up their hearts and lives to me. Several children and youth have asked that we use the research to encourage other projects around the world in forming other city-wide strategies. My prayer is that God will in fact encourage God’s people to consider the idea that we can accomplish more when we work together. This is certainly evident in the work of Early Encounter CBBA.
