Testimonial from Grace Druml

 “I wanted to personally thank you for the amazing opportunity that you granted me with.  I have always had this image of a young, confident, adventurous, and inspiring woman in my mind that I have always strived to be and I believe that I began to find her throughout Jamaica.  Due to this trip, you gave me the opportunity to discover and reveal my identity.  I was able to get a peek at the young woman that I want to be in life, as well as the path that I sometime hope to follow.  I have never received so much insight and knowledge throughout a week period.  I walked away from that trip feeling like a new woman that has the ability to lead and inspire others, while having faith in myself.  Because of some apprehension I considered not going to Kingston.  However, I saw Jamaica as an opportunity to actually go out and live by my motto: "Viva la vita. Inspire la Gente." It is Italian for “Live the Life. Inspire the People”. That is now my main goal and motivation in life.  I honestly do not think I will ever be able to thank you enough for the effort and time that you put into this trip, as well as your inspirational devotion and dedication of living this life of generosity and faith.  I can honestly say that Jamaica changed my life.  Every leader, child, mother, father, speaker, and fellow pivotal directionist (I think I just made up my own word) added to my experience and taught me something unique.  Pivotal Directions taught me to follow my dreams, and for that I will forever be thankful.  I have never experienced so much genuine happiness than within those 8 days and you are to thank for that.  You have given me a whole new perspective on this amazing life that I am blessed to be a part of.  Thank you for displaying your trust and confidence in me, because you finally helped me see the unique talents that I have to offer God's people. Grace”
