As I close in on the seventh year anniversary of my, originally six month journey, here to the Philippines, I find it an appropriate time to reflect and express my thanks to God for seeing me through for without Him I assure you I would not have survived. I also find it appropriate to close this volume and give my testimony of His grace and mercy in the form of a book. To those who have been intricate parts of this work, do not fear. I have no regrets and only thanks and love for each and every one. It has been a struggle in every sense, physically, emotionally, spiritually and a financial burden on many and for that I pray forgiveness. However, I hope for the words to express a story worthy of your praise and show the value each and everyone of you hold in my life and heart. Grace and love to you all. ~ R.A.T.
