Three Cups of Tea Jun 18, 2009
I've been buying copies of this book and sending them to family and friends. This book is a must read...a story of hope, compassion and persistence for our modern times. Greg has shared his story of a very serendipitous encounter with a village elder in Pakistan that became life changing. The support he receives from his wife and family are equally amazing as his efforts to build schools for children in remote areas of Pakistan and eventually Afganistan.
Here is the diplomacy of the 21st century that is necessary to turn hearts and minds from poverty, despair and going over to the side of the forces that attempt to keep these peoples oppressed and controlled.
The writing is superb and well-thought-out. I highly recommend this book. The story is ongoing...that's the beauty of reading this book...knowing that the work and the lecturing goes on.
