4Life Makes People Sing!

At the 4Life meeting in Barcelona, Spain earlier this month, we were treated to a wonderful performance of an original 4Life song. The words and music were written by 4Life distributor Helge Zumdieck. It is such a great song, so we wanted to share the words with you.

We Live 4Life

There's a moment to take a chance,
Where you hold a precious gift right in your hands.

You just need to open up, follow your heart!

There's a moment to take a chance
You will take a lift up high into the sky.
Don't let go, 'cause you're guided by your soul!

We live 4Life, together building people,

We live 4Life, together building you.

We live 4
Life, together building the future of everyone.

There's a moment to take a chance,

Spread the news around the world and tell your friends.

What are you waiting for? Follow your heart!

Get yourself ready today,

You will brighten up your life and break
Into the open arms of the greatest love divine.

We live 4Life, together building people,

We live 4Life, together building you.

We live 4Life, together building the future of everyone.

We live 4Life, together building people,

We live 4Life, together building you.

We live 4Life, together building the future of everyone

Everywhere in the world.

Next week, we will share with you a 4Life song written by some of our Malaysian distributors. They performed it at their most recent convention and it was fantastic!

4Life is inspiring many people to achieve phenomenal health and financial security. Now that is something to sing about!

4Life Distributors Serve in India

This past week we had the privilege of visiting a very special place in India. It was our first time traveling to India and we could think of no better place to start our visit than at the SOS Children's Villages location in Hyderabad. It is a place unlike any we've ever seen before.

The mission of SOS Children's Villages is two-fold. First of all, they want to strengthen existing families who are suffering from a lack of funds. Their second objective—and probably the most important thing they do—is to provide a secure and loving place to live for children who have been abandoned, and to prepare them to be happy and productive adults. The thing that makes this place so different from an orphanage is that the children are placed in a "family." Each child is placed in the care of a "mother." This mother is a woman who does not have a family of her own and has dedicated her life to loving and caring for her SOS children. Most mothers in the village care for about 8–10 children.

The children learn to love and care for their siblings and work together as a family. They grow a garden and go to school. The school provides an academic education as well as skills training in subjects such as music and computers. Each house is part of a beautiful village, which consists of a common area where they have prayer and community activities. We were touched by the love and happiness we felt from these children and the dedication of the mothers was humbling. In her lifetime, one mother will raise about 25 children.

We were also touched to see that one of the buildings has a plaque on it dedicated to Foundation 4Life®. They are so grateful for the generous contributions made possible by wonderful 4Life distributors. Once again, our hearts swelled with gratitude for the vision and love of our distributors all over the world. Your selfless examples are lighting the way for so many people who watch what you do. There is truly no limit to what we can accomplish when we focus on Together, Building People through science, success, and service!

The kids at SOS Children's Villages welcome David and Bianca Lisonbee.

Celebrating our Global 4Life Family

This past week we heard a lot on the news about the 20-year anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. This caused us to think about the great blessings that freedom brings. Nations, families, and individuals are blessed when social, economic, and personal liberties exist.

When we had the pleasure a few weeks ago to meet with 4Life distributors from Russia and Eurasia, we were reminded that just 20 years ago, this association would probably not have been possible. We were also impressed that many of the same dreams and desires unite all of us. No matter who you are or where you live, each of us wants to be healthy, enjoy a great lifestyle, and provide for the people we love. It was humbling to hear about how 4Life products and the 4Life opportunity are helping people in Russia and Eurasia achieve these goals.

Even though governments can do their part to help unite people and change the world, the really powerful relationships happen one-on-one. Person to person. One country to another. One distributor reaching out to another. 4Life is helping unite people from all over the world into a wonderful global family. We love the way the 4Life culture is enhanced and enriched through the unique talents, strengths, and friendship that each culture brings to our worldwide family. We have much to celebrate!

The Future is Bright!

Last week, we had the opportunity to attend a marvelous meeting with 4Life distributors in Barcelona, Spain. There were over 800 people in attendance. The excitement conveyed by distributors about the success they've experienced with 4Life was electric! The 4Life staff from the Barcelona office did a fabulous job organizing the meeting. Kudos to all who were involved!

After that, we set sail on a cruise for the very first Russia/Eurasia Great Escape+ trip. In addition to all of the Great Escape+ attendees, we were thrilled to enjoy the trip with Platinum International Diamonds Dave and Gabriela Daughtrey and Russia's first Gold International Diamond, Lyubov Alimova. We were so impressed at the number of medical professionals in the group. They are a very educated group who love the science of 4Life Transfer Factor®. We heard many wonderful testimonials about how the 4Life products have provided immune system support in their part of the world. It was very inspiring.

Whether in Spain, Eurasia, or anywhere else in the world, one thing remains the same: the hope and optimism you feel as you witness the enthusiasm of 4Life distributors. In today's world, we are seeing a lot of fear and worry about the economy and what the future holds. Below are some pictures from these events. You will notice that none of these people look worried or fearful. The future is very bright for 4Life and its distributors!
