Pope is making the news

This month my Dad is retiring from his position as CEO of US Synthetic and he and my mom are moving to Kenya. For the last 10 years, my dad heart has been in Kenya. Striving to help families who face life threatening poverty to become economically self reliant. He started a micro-credit bank in Kenya, and he also plans on starting other enterprises to create jobs while he is there.
KSL featured him on the news (look for my fat face in the red on stage briefly). He was also featured on the front page of the Deseret News last saturday. Proud of you dad, can't wait to get over to Kenya with you!

Your dad is so great! Sorry you had to leave the party early, I had to take your place on stage, and save you the embarrassment of the comedian... ;-)

He heard his calling and followed it.. what an amazing man. Your mom must be amazing too. I'll read about the charity and will make sure to give it my support.

That is so inspiring. Most people retire and spend their days doing nothing. Your parents sure aren't. It is so inspiring. You are lucky to have such good examples.

Hey--you're back! Good for your parents--I'm proud of them both. Pleased to call them my uncle and aunt. And you're not so bad as a cousin either.
