Inspirational People Week - Three Cups of Tea - Greg Mortenson
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ever hear of Greg Mortenson? Author of "Three Cups of Tea"? Fabulous book to read. He's a man with a mission - not of his original choosing . . . He was trying to climb a mountain of his own choosing - then God stopped him and place him on a mountain of God's choosing - to start a school for impoverished children.

“Here,” explained the village headman, Haji Ali, “we drink three cups of tea to do business; the first you are a stranger, the second you become a friend, and the third, you join our family, and for our family we are prepared to do anything - even die.”
