"The February trip to Uganda with the Hearts and Hope team was one of the most eye-opening experiences in my lifetime. I think what stood out most were the people's smiles. No matter what village we visited, the circumstances, or time of day, we were greeted by children, teenagers, and adults. Each person wore the most beautiful smile; the kind that makes you feel warm inside. I was especially impressed by the ladies who sewed with me in Nakabango. They watched me with care as I shared instructions and ultimately ended up with the perfect, finished bag. Each time I looked up I saw them smiling at me, especially when they saw the project coming together. They seemed so grateful and pleased with what they had made with their own two hands. What a fulfilling day! I hope I continue to see all these wonderful smiles forever in my dreams."
