(October 2017) Earlier in the year, four Colombian distributors teamed up with a local nonprofit organization to build a home for a family in need. In October, a group of 20 volunteers, including distributors, employees, and their families, built a house for Mileidy Bedoya, her three children, and her mom. The group wants to continue this service in 2018.
“It was one of the best experiences of my life. To help people who need it most filled me with immense happiness,” commented 4Life Colombia General Manager Nao Lau. “Each block, pillar, and roof tile was placed with love, teamwork, and excellence. No one quit, even with all of the challenges we faced. We only had one goal—to finish the house. I will never forget the faces of the family members when they opened the door of their new home. The tears of happiness and expressions of gratitude were priceless!”
4Life Colombia Marketing and Commercial Manager Mónica Salas said, “Every moment I worked on the house was fantastic. My heart was full of energy and it was a very special day in my life. I learned how to build a house, but most importantly, I once again learned that with teamwork, you can fulfill people’s dreams. Mileidy and her family were so thankful and filled with joy. Thank you, 4Life, for allowing me to be a part of the pillar of service. Thank you, Bianca Lisonbee and Foundation 4Life, for giving me the opportunity to understand that what truly matters in life is love.”
On October 28 during an International Networkers Team event and rally in Bogotá, Gold International Diamond Norma Rocha and International Diamonds Julieth Galeano, Abigail López, and Lorena Vega presented Colombia’s next service project—“Together, Building Homes” with the Catalina Muñoz Foundation. They raised more than $700 in a few hours! Their goal is to raise enough money by February 2018 to build at least two more homes. The launch of the project included a touching video message from 4Life Founder Bianca Lisonbee.
Now, a grateful family has a roof over their heads because of distributors’ hard work, love, kindness, service, and friendship. Foundation 4Life and 4Life Colombia distributors are together, building a legacy of service.
