A Dream Come True

The children at La Casa Rosada help celebrate at the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

This past Tuesday was truly a dream come true for us. It was a day which reflected so well the power of 4Life science, success, and service. That afternoon, we attended the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the beautiful addition of La Casa Rosada orphanage in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, made possible in part by the vision and generosity of so many of our 4Life distributors.

As we toured the beautiful facility, we thought back to when Sister Carmen Veiga gave us a tour in the very early days of the construction. As we climbed through mounds of dirt and debris, Sister Carmen pointed out with great enthusiasm her vision of what each area would look like. All we could see was rubble, but Sister Carmen could see with an "eye of faith" the details of her dream. Our Credendo Vides Award is presented at each 4Life convention. Credendo vides literally means "believing is seeing" in Latin. It is when we truly envision our dreams that we can bring about what we desire.

As we thought about the beautiful children at La Casa Rosada—their gratitude and excitement on the day of the ribbon-cutting—we were reminded once again that the new addition is just a symbol of what we are truly building at the orphanage... people. At 4Life, we are in the dream-construction business, and together, we are building people. Sometimes our dreams may appear to be in rubble. Because of set-backs and disappointments, we may only be able to see the ruins of past dreams. If you ever feel this way, please remember that at 4Life, we're committed to helping you believe in the beauty of your dreams, and seeing them through to fruition.

At La Casa Rosada this week, we witnessed the power of what we can accomplish when we work together. Also on Tuesday, we attended a 4Life opportunity meeting with over 1200 people. We saw how these people are utilizing the 4Life products and opportunity to accomplish their own hopes and dreams. We challenge you to envision your 4Life dream in all its details, and together, let's make it come true.

4Life Transfer Factor® really works!

About a year ago, we were asked to speak at the Brigham Young University Marriott School of Business about our experiences when we started 4Life. Of course, we could not tell the 4Life story without also talking about the amazing immune system power of 4Life Transfer Factor.

After we concluded our presentation, a couple approached us. They began telling us about their search, along with several of their family members, for a product to support the immune system. This couple had tried everything they could find. We answered the questions they had about 4Life Transfer Factor and encouraged them to try it.

Last week, while attending Brigham Young University's annual business conference, this same couple approached us again. They let us know that they had been using 4Life Transfer Factor products for the past year and had experienced great support. In face, they had determined they always wanted to have 4Life Transfer Factor in their house.

Once again, we were reminded of the opportunity and obligation we have to tell the world about these products. They really work! And because they provide such great support, we also have one of the best financial opportunities available to build a business through sharing the products... and build other people's lives in the process.

We feel so fortunate to have effective products rooted in solid science, a dynamite opportunity for financial success, and the chance to give service to others as we share 4Life with people around the world.

"Vehicle" for Success

We really like the saying, "It isn't a matter of if we are going to make something happen, but how."

It is this kind of "make it happen" attitude that is getting Luis Vasquez, a 4Life distributor in Arlington, Texas, to the illuminate '09 convention in Orlando, Florida. And, as many of you know, attending convention will help Luis get one step closer to achieving his dreams.

Originally from Medellin, Colombia, Luis is 26 years old. He signed up as a 4Life distributor just six weeks ago. Even though he didn't have enough money to attend convention, that didn't deter Luis. He sold his 1994 Nissan Sentra! Luis said, "It had 125,000 miles on it and I got $1,200 for it. I used the money to pay for the 4Life convention in Orlando, because I know I will get more mileage out of convention than I would have gotten by keeping the car!"

It is this type of vision that produces phenomenal success. It is this type of sacrifice that purchases great rewards. It is this type of passion that makes dreams come true.

Congratulations, Luis! We have no doubt that your experience at illuminate '09 will provide you with a great "vehicle" for success. Thank you for your inspiring example of knowing how to make things happen!
