Barbara de Angelis is quoted as saying,
"Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is
invisible - it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to
transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material
While I know very little about Barbara de Angelis, I can tell you that she has captured the essence of the reason we went and will continue to go to South Africa. When our group arrived a few days ago there were South Africans looking for their friends from the visit last year. Think about it... a year later they heard some of us were coming and came to see if by any chance their friends were in that group. That is a strong connection for both sides. The joy that Barbara is taking about is what is shared between the South Africans and us.
