Coming from a land blessed with luxuries and comforts, we notice daily the necessities others do without. For instance, many people here are without running water, electricity, good homes and a balanced diet. But despite these so-called adversities, they are happy and giving. They realize what they do have comes from the Lord. We often have to be careful with our compliments for they willingly give you whatever they have. These people have taught us that the material things of life are not important to be happy.
