search for points of light in the community - good one

Here is a story of hope all the way from Brazil during Glocon facilitated by Ian and Alison Campbell. 

Ebeneser Nogueira When working in violent places and start losing loved ones because of the violence, it is common we do not see reason to be there or even to continue working. In these phases of our work, when violence was crushing us, Ian Campbell taught me something unforgettable: search for points of light in the community. And then we could see that it was not useless work there and that people were being affected and changed through our work. Then hope returned and had the strength to continue.
