The Greatest Rewards Come When you Give of Yourself

Indeed, the greatest rewards come when you give of yourself. It’s about bettering the lives of others, being part of something bigger than yourself, and making a positive difference  ~NICK VUJICIC.

I attended my first activity on the 29th of April 2017 in Kitui, somewhere new to me. To be honest, I was extremely nervous and had little expectations but I can safely say the day held no disappointments. My interaction with the locals gave me insight on some of their aspirations, what inhibits them from achieving them and the coping mechanisms they have developed to help them bridge to their success, among other things we talked about. I also made many new friends from the interaction with COP members.

It is truly a great reward to be part of something this great. To reach out to a fellow human being and to touch their lives if not uplift them. This day being my birthday, it was the greatest gift I received. First, being a part of the COP family who showered me with warm wishes and spontaneous gifts not forgetting the renowned happy birthday song that they sang with joyful hearts. Secondly, through them, getting such an opportunity to reach out to others.

“being a family means you are part of something wonderful. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life. No matter what”

COP is a family that has goals greater than life itself. The time I have spent in this wonderful family, I do feel that it seeks to give life, not in the creation perspective, but to ignite a flame in the hearts of those who need a little push so that they can make life better for themselves. I look forward to being a part of many more programs and I can say that I am honored to be a member of the COP family.
