Thanks for the post – I caught up
with that article when it first came out – pretty switched on guy doing
great stuff in the NGO aid sector. Andrew and his new bride Gala
were a students of mine (along
with Bill and Janet) down in Tassie a couple of years
ago. Of course this recharge PDC followed up years of real experience. It was a
great course like that – as we had about 10 or so practicing graduates –
who brought so much with them. Not having spoken to Andrew for about a year
this story was great to see and quite predictable in the sense of he very
capable. Its not surprising that Andrew and Gala are
in Iraq with Gala being an Iraqi Kurd with a great passion for her people
and land. Good luck to them – I know that they’ll (and Geoff) make
a big difference (wherever they go).
Yours and Growing,

Thought you might be interested in this article by Andrew Jones from our last
Seeds of Change eNewsletter. He discusses his Pc work with Geoff Lawton in a
refugee camp in Macedonia. Pretty fascinating whatt they could accomplish in a
short time. I hear that Andrew is in Iraq now as well.

Geoff Lawton heading that way!!
Yes, I have heard that he is off to Iraq... though I don't know for whom he is
going there or what he is to do.
