Melinda Gates says, "Deep human connection is the purpose and the result of a meaningful life-and it will inspire the most amazing acts of love, generosity, and humanity."
This is Founder Friday, a Forum for The Human Connection.
I believe Ms. Gates would love this Human Connection story from Yolanda Powell, founder of the nonprofit Passport Promise
"I thought I would give a testimony on the human connection. Last week while on the plane headed home to Dallas, I saw a priest and asked him to pray for me. He placed his hand on my forehead and prayed for me right then and there.
Later a gentleman began talking to me, and also another flight attendant about travel. I told him about Passport Promise. When I tell you he was excited about my vision he shared it with others on the plane.
He later pulled me to the side and told me to stay in touch with him and gave me his email.
It turns out this man belongs to a group of angel investors. OMG!!!
He advised me to submit an application to do a pitch and today, I got the email that my application was accepted.
HALLELUJAH Thank You JESUS!!!!!!
I don't know if my request for prayer lead to this encounter or just God giving confirmation I'm on the right path.
Whichever it is: The Human connection brought it about."
