  1. Early June 6th Ethiopia - "This run is going the way it should go...running and being in orphanages...schools... visiting farm people in their primitive environments...being exposed to the poverty...40 percent poverty population...today [Thursday], a leadership conference and foot washing...Saturday morning, a 5K run and feeding of 6,000 starving people...leave Awassa on Sunday evening to go back to Addis Ababa...and to have a powerful agenda...Mickey is doing brilliant work. He knows the importance of this film." [... and we back home are so looking forward to it!]..."This is one of the longest times I have had on the internet. It has been about 45 seconds and then shuts down...."
  2. June 5th - Stan is running into an orphanage, then off to a very primitive location. Exciting film footage will be forthcoming... but for now, he was lucky to get one phrase at a time as internet connected and disconnected (3-4 times in a minute).
  3. June 4th report: 16-hour a day schedules, staying plenty busy... "We did a scene with a farmer and his family (11 children) inside their grass thatched, mud dried walls, no water, electricity, ... it was awesome...Mickey said this was the most incredible scene he has ever done in his life...the conclusion of what the man said to the world will blow the audience away..." ... Can't wait to see it!

[Stan takes his computer and points the camera to the person behind the desk, to employees in the lobby of the hotel and goes outside and introduces me to people on the street as well.]Meeting people who are in the hotel, working - I see this all the time - so often they are ignored, just servants, but they all have their own journey, each person has their own song to sing.
