I am 59 and am interested in becoming a mentor.  I need to give back.  I have not done so and I hope it is not too late.

I just wanted to thank you and the rest of the team for coming out and extending the opportunity for us to be more involved with helping our community.  I believe that you share the vision of what an impact faith can have on this world where faith has almost become a dirty word.

Thank you for participating in the summit.  Just to know that, at the Federal level, folks understand the local needs of communities nationwide is inspiring.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the enormous effort of coming to our Crime and Gang Prevention Summit. Your mere presence and support are greatly appreciated. Not to mention the good company and strengthening of friendships... I really enjoyed the “Faith Based Flavor” of the entire event.

“Thanks for being on the panel and taking the lead on the national perspective.  As I lead this faith initiative with the team I know we will be talking.”

We are excited about the Lets Move Campaign that has been launched by our First Lady.  Personally I have been keeping up with all of the different ideas that she has been implementing with trying to lower child hood obesity in America and I was thrilled to know that she has decided to partner with local churches throughout the communities across the country.  We are excited to know the Lets Move Campaign has started nationally and that we can also become a part of the Let's Move Campaign.  We would definitely like to be a part of this great endeavor and our ministry is excited that we are not the only ones working hard to encourage others to lead healthy lives.

Just a note to thank you for taking the time to explain the… micro-lending program to our team.  We appreciate your candor and insights.  You gave us a lot to think about.  We look forward to receiving the road map and notice of the webinar.
