Reaching Out to Others

During this time of year, our hearts seem to be extra sensitive to the needs of those around us. Serving our mission in Italy over the past few months, we have been reminded of the many blessings we have. A few weeks ago, we began helping a young couple from Africa who had to flee their country due to political unrest, losing everything they had in the process. After a series of incredible events, they ended up in an Italian refugee camp. The couple came to Milan after being told it was a good place to find work, only to discover that the person they had put their trust in was nowhere to be found.

This man and his wife are stranded in a foreign country, with no way to communicate, no place to stay, and no family... and they are expecting their first baby! It has been so wonderful for us to witness how people have reached out to help this family. It certainly reinforces one's faith in the goodness that exists in everyone. It has also been a pointed reminder to us of how much we have to be grateful for in our lives.

One of the great blessings of 4Life is that our science and success put us in a position to help provide service to others. How grateful we are for all of you and the inspiration you are to us. Together, we are truly blessing lives and building people. From the bottom of our hears, we thank you for your example. We are convinced that 4Life distributors have the biggest hearts in the entire world. Together, we continue to make a difference in people's lives by offering them phenomenal health support, the opportunity to experience financial security, and the chance to be part of an incredible worldwide family. We wish you all the joy that giving and receiving brings during this very special time of year.
