I'll be gone for the next ten days or so. I'm heading to Japan to do some missionary relief work. I, and a group of 11 other men will be headed to Japan to help do some repair work and to bring several thousands of dollars of supplies. This is in response to the tsunami that happened back in March. The citizens in Japan are still struggling as there are hundreds of thousands of people still living in temporary shelters.
While my contribution might be limited to what I can do in ten days and the resources that I have collected, I am hoping that it will make a difference in someone's life. I'll be boarding a plane later today with my team.
I know many Amway IBOs feel they are making a differnce for the better in people's lives. I know I was taught that by my upline. But looking back, I used to wonder how signing someone up for Amway or shoping them the plan was helping them. In most cases, these nice people were probably worse off financially if they attended functions and/or participated in other things that required a cash payment, such as voicemail, or standing order.
My former upline diamond once had six (6) ruby legs back in the late 1990's. Not a single one of them is even a platinum today, and most of them have quit. That speaks volumes to me.
Anyway, I wish everyone well and I hope that our relief mission blesses the lives of some of the Japanese people. Joecool out.
