  • LET'S GO CHECK OUT SOME INSPIRING STORIES.
  • 00:00:09.020 --> 00:00:12.130
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:12.160 --> 00:00:20.050
  • - GOD WANTS US TO BE THE BEST PERSON WE CAN BE IN
  • 00:00:20.080 --> 00:00:22.100
  • MIND, BODY AND SOUL.
  • 00:00:22.130 --> 00:00:23.280
  • AND IF WE FOLLOW HIS LEADING, HE'LL TAKE US THE
  • 00:00:24.010 --> 00:00:26.250
  • REST OF THE WAY.
  • 00:00:26.280 --> 00:00:29.210
  • BUT WE DO HAVE TO BE WILLING TO TRUST AND DO IT.
  • 00:00:29.240 --> 00:00:32.180
  • IF PEOPLE CAN JUST GRASP THAT THE OPPORTUNITY FOR A
  • 00:00:32.210 --> 00:00:34.160
  • BETTER LIFE IS STARING AT THEM RIGHT IN THE FACE, THEN
  • 00:00:34.190 --> 00:00:36.260
  • ALL THEY'VE GOT TO DO IS REACH OUT AND GRAB IT.
  • 00:00:36.290 --> 00:00:39.190
  • WELL, I'D SAY IF YOU'RE NOT HAPPY WITH WHERE YOU ARE IN
  • 00:00:39.220 --> 00:00:43.060
  • YOUR LIFE, THEN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:00:43.090 --> 00:00:45.110
  • YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU CAN DO UNTIL YOU STAND UP AND
  • 00:00:45.140 --> 00:00:48.160
  • DECIDE TO TRY.
  • 00:00:48.190 --> 00:00:50.110
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:00:50.140 --> 00:00:57.020
  • - CHRISTIAN EDUCATION WAS SUCH A VITAL PART OF HELPING
  • 00:00:57.050 --> 00:00:59.070
  • ME TO BE WHO I AM TODAY.
  • 00:00:59.100 --> 00:01:02.040
  • IT WAS THE PLATFORM THAT GAVE ME A SENSE OF THE WORLD
  • 00:01:02.070 --> 00:01:05.210
  • THAT I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD.
  • 00:01:05.240 --> 00:01:08.040
  • IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
  • 00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:10.060
  • I NEVER EVER WOULD HAVE DONE THE THINGS I WOULD HAVE DONE
  • 00:01:10.090 --> 00:01:12.030
  • IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:01:12.060 --> 00:01:14.060
  • I WANT OTHER PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE THE OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:01:14.090 --> 00:01:16.240
  • TO FULLY DEVELOP INTO WHAT GOD INTENDED THEM TO BE.
  • 00:01:16.270 --> 00:01:19.140
  • AND THE ONLY WAY THAT A PERSON CAN FAIL IS TO NOT TRY.
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:23.120
  • SOME PEOPLE SAY WHAT IF I GET OUT THERE AND I DON'T
  • 00:01:23.150 --> 00:01:25.280
  • MAKE IT? OKAY. SO WHAT?
  • 00:01:26.010 --> 00:01:28.050
  • BUT WHAT IF YOU GET OUT THERE AND YOU DO?
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:30.190
  • EVERY DAY WHEN I FIND SOMEONE WHO LOOKS LIKE THEY HATE
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:34.080
  • WHAT THEY DO FOR A LIVING, I WANT TO SAY TO THEM, HEY,
  • 00:01:34.110 --> 00:01:37.200
  • WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING?
  • 00:01:37.230 --> 00:01:39.270
  • GO DO IT!
  • 00:01:40.000 --> 00:01:41.120
  • AND IF THEY SAY WELL, I DON'T HAVE THE SKILLS FOR THAT.
  • 00:01:41.150 --> 00:01:43.060
  • THEN GO LEARN THEM.
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:44.190
  • IT'S RIDICULOUS TO SPEND ONE'S LIFE AND AT AGE 70 LOOK
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:46.180
  • BACK AND SAY WOW, THAT'S IT?
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:51.120
  • THAT'S ALL THERE IS.
  • 00:01:51.150 --> 00:01:52.210
  • I THINK WE OUGHT TO BE EVERYDAY WAKING UP AND SAY
  • 00:01:52.240 --> 00:01:54.250
  • WHAT WOULD I REALLY REALLY WANT TO DO WITH MY LIFE?
  • 00:01:54.280 --> 00:01:57.150
  • AND FIND A WAY TO GET IT DONE.
  • 00:01:57.180 --> 00:01:59.060
  • AND IF YOU HAVE TO WORK AROUND THE JOB YOU HAVE AND
  • 00:01:59.090 --> 00:02:01.150
  • GET TRAINED FOR THE ONE YOU WANT, WELL, THE ONE YOU WANT
  • 00:02:01.180 --> 00:02:03.230
  • ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN IF YOU'RE NOT PREPARED FOR IT.
  • 00:02:03.260 --> 00:02:06.140
  • SO GO GET PREPARED AND START TODAY BECAUSE YOU MAY WAKE
  • 00:02:06.170 --> 00:02:08.150
  • UP WHEN YOU'RE 70 AND WISHED YOU HAD.
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:13.230
  • - FOR ANYONE INTERESTED IN SERVING, DOING MINISTRY,
  • 00:02:13.260 --> 00:02:16.170
  • DOING MISSIONS, EDUCATION IN ANY FORM IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:02:16.200 --> 00:02:19.070
  • THERE'S SO MUCH THAT YOU GAIN.
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:21.240
  • IF YOU LIVE ON CAMPUS, YOU'RE LIVING IN COMMUNITY.
  • 00:02:21.270 --> 00:02:24.000
  • YOU LEARN HOW TO WORK ASK LIVE WITH PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.280
  • SO SO KEY.
  • 00:02:26.010 --> 00:02:27.120
  • CLASSES AND FOUNDATION, CRITICAL THINKING, STUDY
  • 00:02:27.150 --> 00:02:30.100
  • HABITS, DISCIPLINES.
  • 00:02:30.130 --> 00:02:33.210
  • SO HUGE IN ANY KIND OF LEVEL OF EDUCATION.
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:36.180
  • SO IN ORDER BEFORE YOU EVEN LAUNCH INTO THE WORLD, IT'S
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:39.120
  • SO KEY TO BE GROUNDED, TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE, TO HAVE A
  • 00:02:39.150 --> 00:02:42.220
  • CHANCE OUTSIDE OF YOUR FOUR WALLS, OUTSIDE OF YOUR HOME
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:46.050
  • TO EXPLORE WHO ARE YOU IN THIS WORLD.
  • 00:02:46.080 --> 00:02:49.150
  • AND THEN YOU'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO REALLY REALLY REACH
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:52.090
  • PEOPLE FOR YOUR CAUSE, FOR YOUR MINISTRY, FOR JESUS.
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:57.180
  • - SO YOU'RE THINKING OF CONTINUING YOUR EDUCATION?
  • 00:02:57.210 --> 00:03:00.070
  • POST SECONDARY TEACHERS' SALARIES CAN VARY GREATLY.
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:02.230
  • FOR EXAMPLE, THE U.S. BUREAU OF LABOR STATISTICS
  • 00:03:02.260 --> 00:03:06.110
  • FOUND THAT IN 2011 THE
  • 00:03:06.140 --> 00:03:09.070
  • AVERAGE SALARY FOR LAW TEACHERS WAS $108.760 DOLLARS
  • 00:03:09.100 --> 00:03:15.130
  • WHILE THAT OF EDUCATION TEACHERS WAS $65.050.
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:21.010
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:03:21.040 --> 00:03:27.050
  • - THE PROJECT'S NAME IS THE JOURNEY OF TRANSFORMATION.
  • 00:03:27.080 --> 00:03:29.130
  • AND THE OBJECTIVE WAS TO TEACH STUDENTS HOW TO TELL
  • 00:03:29.160 --> 00:03:31.130
  • THEIR STORY ABOUT FIRST OF ALL THE PAST, THEIR PAST LIFE.
  • 00:03:31.160 --> 00:03:35.030
  • TO BE ABLE TO DESCRIBE THAT SO OTHER PEOPLE CAN
  • 00:03:35.060 --> 00:03:38.020
  • UNDERSTAND WHAT LIFE IS LIKE FOR YOUTH IN HAITI, AND THEN
  • 00:03:38.050 --> 00:03:40.000
  • THE WHOLE OBJECTIVE WAS TO ALSO HELP THEM TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:42.170
  • WHAT THAT CHRISTIAN COULD LIKE IN THE FUTURE FOR THEM
  • 00:03:42.200 --> 00:03:44.160
  • AND FOR THEM TO DESCRIBE WHAT IT WOULD LOOK LIKE FOR
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:47.030
  • A YOUTH TO GO FROM BEING FOCUSED ON EVERYDAY LIFE TO
  • 00:03:47.060 --> 00:03:50.210
  • HAVING A VISION FOR THE FUTURE IN THEIR LIFE AND
  • 00:03:50.240 --> 00:03:52.270
  • WHAT IT COULD BE AND EXPAND THAT OUT.
  • 00:03:53.000 --> 00:03:54.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:03:58.130 --> 00:03:59.270
  • - IN HAITI, THERE'S A MILLION OBSTACLES.
  • 00:04:00.020 --> 00:04:02.060
  • AND OFTEN TIMES THE YOUTH SEES OBSTACLES AS SOMETHING
  • 00:04:02.090 --> 00:04:04.100
  • THEY'RE NEVER GOING TO GET PAST.
  • 00:04:04.130 --> 00:04:06.000
  • THEY'RE JUST THERE.
  • 00:04:06.030 --> 00:04:07.120
  • AND THE WHOLE OBJECTIVE TOO WAS TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND
  • 00:04:07.150 --> 00:04:09.060
  • THAT A STORY HAS ITS UPS AND DOWNS AND SUCCESSES AND
  • 00:04:09.090 --> 00:04:12.080
  • FAILURES AND OBSTACLES ALONG THE WAY.
  • 00:04:12.110 --> 00:04:14.270
  • BUT IT DEPENDS ON HOW YOU TAKE THOSE OBSTACLES AND HOW
  • 00:04:15.000 --> 00:04:17.000
  • YOU VIEW THOSE THAT WILL HELP YOU DETERMINE WHAT YOUR
  • 00:04:17.030 --> 00:04:19.030
  • FUTURE IS GOING TO BE.
  • 00:04:19.060 --> 00:04:20.280
  • SO FOR THE YOUTH, THEY GOT THIS CONCEPT IN THEIR MIND
  • 00:04:21.010 --> 00:04:23.010
  • AS WE BEGAN WALKING THROUGH THE JOURNEY FOR THEM THAT
  • 00:04:23.040 --> 00:04:24.280
  • THEY WEREN'T BOUND BY THAT.
  • 00:04:25.010 --> 00:04:26.280
  • THEY HAD THIS OPPORTUNITY IN LIFE TO TAKE ON THOSE
  • 00:04:27.010 --> 00:04:28.280
  • OBSTACLES AND USE THEM AS OPPORTUNITIES TO MOVE AHEAD
  • 00:04:29.010 --> 00:04:32.010
  • TO THE FUTURE, AND HOW THEY DEALT WITH THOSE THINGS
  • 00:04:32.040 --> 00:04:34.240
  • WOULD DETERMINE A LOT OF WHAT THEIR FUTURE LOOKED LIKE.
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.220
  • EVERYBODY HAS CHALLENGES IN HAITI.
  • 00:04:36.250 --> 00:04:38.090
  • SO WHEN THEY LOOK AT THEIR WHOLE PERSPECTIVE, IT'S
  • 00:04:38.120 --> 00:04:41.010
  • REALLY HELPING THEM TRANSFORM THEIR MIND, THEIR
  • 00:04:41.040 --> 00:04:43.110
  • THINKING AND REALIZING IT'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO WITH MY
  • 00:04:43.140 --> 00:04:45.260
  • LIFE AND I'M GOING TO GRAB HOLD OF IT AND I'M GOING TO
  • 00:04:45.290 --> 00:04:48.010
  • BEGIN TO FOCUS FORWARD AND SEE THE THINGS I CAN DO AND
  • 00:04:48.040 --> 00:04:50.030
  • NOT LET THOSE THINGS STOP ME FROM BECOMING ALL
  • 00:04:50.060 --> 00:04:52.060
  • THAT I CAN BE. YEAH.
  • 00:04:52.090 --> 00:04:53.280
  • OBVIOUSLY THE TEACHERS HAVE A HUGE INFLUENCE ON WHAT'S
  • 00:04:54.010 --> 00:04:56.040
  • HAPPENING EVEN THOUGH THEY DON'T FEEL LIKE THEY DID.
  • 00:04:56.070 --> 00:04:58.040
  • THE MEETING THAT WE HAD IN THE TEACHERS, THEY WENT IN
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:05:00.140
  • REALIZING IT AND WHAT THEY WANTED TO HELP US UNDERSTAND
  • 00:05:00.170 --> 00:05:03.220
  • WAS ALL THE OBSTACLES.
  • 00:05:03.250 --> 00:05:05.160
  • AND THEY SAID WELL, WE NEED HELP.
  • 00:05:05.190 --> 00:05:07.140
  • WE NEED SIMPLE THINGS LIKE PAPER AND PENCILS
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:08.280
  • AND SOME BOOKS.
  • 00:05:09.010 --> 00:05:10.240
  • THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE BOOKS TO USE.
  • 00:05:10.270 --> 00:05:12.110
  • ALL THEY HAVE IS A PIECE OF CHALK AND A CHALK BOARD
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:13.260
  • IN THE ROOM.
  • 00:05:13.290 --> 00:05:15.130
  • AND THAT'S THEIR WHOLE SUPPLIES.
  • 00:05:15.160 --> 00:05:17.100
  • AND WE CAME IN SAYING, DO WE UNDERSTAND THE NEED?
  • 00:05:17.130 --> 00:05:19.010
  • AND YEAH WE UNDERSTOOD THAT NEED BUT THERE'S AN EVEN
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:20.240
  • GREATER NEED FOR THEM.
  • 00:05:20.270 --> 00:05:22.160
  • AND AS WE BEGAN TO TALK, WE WANTED TO HELP THEM
  • 00:05:22.190 --> 00:05:24.220
  • UNDERSTAND IT'S NOT JUST GO SURVIVAL.
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.240
  • IT REALLY IS WHAT ABOUT THEIR DREAMS ARE.
  • 00:05:26.270 --> 00:05:28.090
  • AND OUR OBJECTIVE WAS TO COME ALONG SIDE THEM AND TO
  • 00:05:28.120 --> 00:05:30.220
  • HELP THEM UNDERSTAND WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TO RAISE UP THAT
  • 00:05:30.250 --> 00:05:33.190
  • GENERATION THAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE SHAPING.
  • 00:05:33.220 --> 00:05:36.110
  • SO THE TEACHERS BEGAN TO UNDERSTAND THAT AND WE BEGAN
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:38.220
  • TO HIT THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE WEEK ON THIS CONCEPT MUCH
  • 00:05:38.250 --> 00:05:42.160
  • HAITI BEING A NATION WHICH HAS ITS HANDS OUT.
  • 00:05:42.190 --> 00:05:44.220
  • AND THEY PUT THEIR HANDS OUT TO TAKE, AND ONE OF THE
  • 00:05:44.250 --> 00:05:46.120
  • THINGS WE SAID TO THEM IS YOU NEED TO PUT YOUR HANDS
  • 00:05:46.150 --> 00:05:48.150
  • OUT TO TAKE AND LEARN HOW TO PUT YOUR HANDS OUT TO GIVE.
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:50.150
  • AND THE TEACHERS CAUGHT ONTO THAT CONCEPT THAT THAT WAS
  • 00:05:50.180 --> 00:05:52.180
  • WHAT THEIR ROLE, THEIR JOB WAS GOING TO BE WAS TO
  • 00:05:52.210 --> 00:05:55.020
  • BECOME PEOPLE THAT COULD GIVE TO THEMSELVES AND GIVE
  • 00:05:55.050 --> 00:05:57.070
  • OF THEIR RESOURCES.
  • 00:05:57.100 --> 00:05:58.290
  • THE GREATEST THING THEY HAD TO GIVE WAS A WAY FOR THE
  • 00:05:59.020 --> 00:06:00.290
  • STUDENTS TO LIVE THEIR LIFE DIFFERENTLY, NOT JUST
  • 00:06:01.020 --> 00:06:02.260
  • DAY-TO-DAY BUT THEY CAN REALLY TEACH THEM HOW TO BE
  • 00:06:02.290 --> 00:06:04.170
  • VISIONARIES AND HOW TO FIND CAREERS.
  • 00:06:04.200 --> 00:06:06.170
  • AND THEN THE TEACHERS WOULD TEACH DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE
  • 00:06:06.200 --> 00:06:08.100
  • ONLY ARE THEY HELPING STUDENTS JUST SURVIVE AND
  • 00:06:08.130 --> 00:06:10.100
  • JUST FOCUS FOR AN EXAM THAT HE HAD EVERY YEAR AND
  • 00:06:10.130 --> 00:06:12.170
  • THEY HAD THIS EXAM EVERY YEAR, AND IF THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:06:12.200 --> 00:06:14.220
  • PASS IT, THEY'D HAVE TO TAKE THAT YEAR OVER AGAIN
  • 00:06:14.250 --> 00:06:16.130
  • IN SCHOOL.
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:18.040
  • NOW THEY'RE SAYING THAT EXAM IS A PART OF
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:19.160
  • SOMETHING GREATER.
  • 00:06:19.190 --> 00:06:21.110
  • WE WANT TO RAISE UP MEN AND WOMEN THAT CAN BE GOOD
  • 00:06:21.140 --> 00:06:23.060
  • ENTREPRENEURS, WHO CAN BE GOOD BUSINESS PEOPLE AND BE
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:25.060
  • GOOD PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY AND GREAT PEOPLE IN THE
  • 00:06:25.090 --> 00:06:27.050
  • FUTURE FOR LEADERSHIP IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:06:27.080 --> 00:06:28.290
  • I THINK THERE'S THIS FEELING IN HAITI THAT TO MAKE
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:31.020
  • SOMETHING HAPPEN, I'VE GOT TO WORK TEN TIMES HARDER.
  • 00:06:31.050 --> 00:06:33.060
  • IF WE CAN TAKE THOSE THINGS AWAY AND MANAGE THOSE THINGS
  • 00:06:33.090 --> 00:06:35.120
  • BETTER, THEN IT'S GOING TO EXPAND THEIR ABILITY AND
  • 00:06:35.150 --> 00:06:37.170
  • MOVE TO THE FUTURE AND SEE WHAT THAT REALITY CAN BE AS
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:39.140
  • THEY WORK HARD TOWARDS THAT.
  • 00:06:39.170 --> 00:06:43.160
  • BUT IF THEY NEVER TACKLE THOSE THINGS, THEY'RE GOING
  • 00:06:43.190 --> 00:06:45.250
  • TO HAVE A HARD TIME MOVING AHEAD.
  • 00:06:45.280 --> 00:06:47.130
  • BUT THERE ARE STEPS.
  • 00:06:47.160 --> 00:06:49.100
  • SO WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO TALK WITH THEM ABOUT THOSE STEPS.
  • 00:06:49.130 --> 00:06:50.250
  • WHAT IS IT GOING TO TAKE? WHAT DO THEY NEED TO DO?
  • 00:06:50.280 --> 00:06:52.230
  • THINK DIFFERENTLY. AND THEN HOW DO THEY MOVE FROM THERE?
  • 00:06:52.260 --> 00:06:54.160
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:06:54.190 --> 00:07:03.220
  • - HI. I'M BOB GATES.
  • 00:07:03.250 --> 00:07:04.280
  • I HAVE BEEN A WIND ENERGY INDUSTRY EXECUTIVE FOR MOST
  • 00:07:05.010 --> 00:07:07.030
  • OF MY CAREER.
  • 00:07:07.060 --> 00:07:09.120
  • I'VE HAD A WONDERFUL LIFE.
  • 00:07:09.150 --> 00:07:11.020
  • I'VE HAD A LOT OF FUN.
  • 00:07:11.050 --> 00:07:12.190
  • I WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO DO THAT HAD I NOT STUCK
  • 00:07:12.220 --> 00:07:16.090
  • WITH IT AND DID NOT ALL THAT I NEEDED TO DO IN
  • 00:07:16.120 --> 00:07:18.190
  • HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE TO FINISH THOSE THINGS AND GET
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:20.220
  • TO THE COMPLETION.
  • 00:07:20.250 --> 00:07:24.170
  • - IF YOU'RE CONSIDERING GOING TO COLLEGE BUT ARE
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:26.270
  • AFRAID FOR SOME REASON, I AM HERE TO TELL YOU YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 00:07:27.000 --> 00:07:30.090
  • SO AMAZING THE PLAN THAT GOD HAS FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:07:30.120 --> 00:07:33.190
  • WHEN I WAS A FAIRLY NEW CHRISTIAN, I WENT ON A
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:36.190
  • MISSION TRIP WITH SOME TEENAGERS TO GUATEMALA, AND
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:39.090
  • BECAUSE I WAS THE ADULT I WAS THE "LEADER".
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:41.140
  • ONE NIGHT WE WENT INTO THIS SMALL CHURCH WHERE THE
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:45.020
  • PEOPLE WERE GOING THROUGH SOME REALLY HARD TIMES.
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:46.230
  • AND SOMEONE HANDED ME A BIBLE AND SAID INSPIRE THEM
  • 00:07:46.260 --> 00:07:49.260
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE THE MISSIONARIES, RIGHT?
  • 00:07:49.290 --> 00:07:52.050
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING.
  • 00:07:52.080 --> 00:07:54.250
  • BUT I WANTED TO TELL THOSE PEOPLE YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS
  • 00:07:54.280 --> 00:07:57.200
  • THROUGH CHRIST WHO GIVES YOU STRENGTH.
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:58.280
  • BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE THAT WAS IN THE BIBLE AND I HAD A
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:01.100
  • TEENAGE INTERPRETER WHO WAS JUST AS NERVOUS AS I WAS AND
  • 00:08:01.130 --> 00:08:03.230
  • HE DIDN'T KNOW WHERE IT WAS IN THE BIBLE EITHER OR EVEN
  • 00:08:03.260 --> 00:08:08.000
  • WHAT I WAS TRYING TO SAY.
  • 00:08:08.030 --> 00:08:09.040
  • SO I KEPT SAYING CHRIST.
  • 00:08:09.070 --> 00:08:11.130
  • YOU KNOW, JESUS?
  • 00:08:11.160 --> 00:08:12.290
  • JESUS GIVES YOU STRENGTH.
  • 00:08:13.020 --> 00:08:14.130
  • AND YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS.
  • 00:08:14.160 --> 00:08:16.030
  • AND FINALLY HE LOOKED AT THE CONGREGATION AND HE SAID,
  • 00:08:16.060 --> 00:08:18.030
  • TU PUEDES!
  • 00:08:18.060 --> 00:08:19.270
  • AND THEY ALL LAUGHED AND LOOKED AT ME.
  • 00:08:20.000 --> 00:08:21.230
  • AND I SAID, WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY TO THEM?
  • 00:08:21.260 --> 00:08:23.220
  • HE SAID, YOU CAN DO IT!
  • 00:08:23.250 --> 00:08:26.000
  • THAT CRACKED ME UP AND IT WASN'T REALLY WHAT I WAS
  • 00:08:26.030 --> 00:08:29.040
  • TRYING TO SAY BUT THAT VOICE IN THAT MOMENT HAS STUCK
  • 00:08:29.070 --> 00:08:31.260
  • THROUGH MY MIND THROUGH SO MANY CHALLENGES THAT I'VE
  • 00:08:31.290 --> 00:08:35.070
  • EXPERIENCED IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:08:35.100 --> 00:08:37.010
  • AND IT'S AMAZING AND GOD IS TELLING YOU, TU PUEDES!
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:40.070
  • YOU CAN DO IT! YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:43.040
  • EPHESIANS 2: 10 SAYS WE ARE GOD'S WORKMANSHIP CREATED IN
  • 00:08:43.070 --> 00:08:47.240
  • CHRIST JESUS TO DO GOOD WORKS WHICH HE HAS PREPARED
  • 00:08:47.270 --> 00:08:50.210
  • IN ADVANCE FOR US TO DO.
  • 00:08:50.240 --> 00:08:52.240
  • WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP.
  • 00:08:52.270 --> 00:08:54.240
  • ANOTHER TRANSLATION SAYS WE ARE HIS MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:08:54.270 --> 00:08:58.120
  • YOU ARE GOD'S MASTERPIECE.
  • 00:08:58.150 --> 00:09:00.090
  • HE CREATED YOU ON PURPOSE FOR A PURPOSE, FOR HIS
  • 00:09:00.120 --> 00:09:02.230
  • PURPOSE WHICH HE PREPARED IN ADVANCE FOR YOU TO DO.
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:08.130
  • IT IS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE THOUGHT.
  • 00:09:08.160 --> 00:09:10.290
  • AND IT'S EMPOWERING TO BELIEVE THAT HE HAS PREPARED
  • 00:09:11.020 --> 00:09:13.270
  • THIS FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:15.250
  • IF YOU WANT TO GO TO SCHOOL, GOD IS CALLING YOU TO GO TO
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:18.230
  • SCHOOL, HE HAS PREPARED EVERYTHING FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:18.260 --> 00:09:21.160
  • DO YOU LIKE TO COOK?
  • 00:09:21.190 --> 00:09:25.030
  • I LOVE TO COOK! AND WHEN I GET A NEW RECIPE THERE'S
  • 00:09:25.060 --> 00:09:27.100
  • BASICALLY 3 PIECES TO THE RECIPE.
  • 00:09:27.130 --> 00:09:29.090
  • THERE'S THE INGREDIENTS, THE PREP TIME, AND THE COOK TIME.
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:33.060
  • SO THE INGREDIENTS GOD PUT IN US WHEN HE CREATED YOU,
  • 00:09:33.090 --> 00:09:37.110
  • HE PUT EVERYTHING FOR HIS PURPOSE AND PLAN IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:09:37.140 --> 00:09:41.040
  • AND THEN THERE'S THE COOK TIME WHEN WE GET TO
  • 00:09:41.070 --> 00:09:43.130
  • ACTUALLY DO IT.
  • 00:09:43.160 --> 00:09:45.120
  • BUT THEN THERE'S THAT TIME IN THE MIDDLE THAT'S THE
  • 00:09:45.150 --> 00:09:47.240
  • PREP TIME, THE PREPARING TIME WHERE GOD IS PUTTING
  • 00:09:47.270 --> 00:09:52.090
  • EVERYTHING TOGETHER, ALL THE INGREDIENTS IN THE PERFECT
  • 00:09:52.120 --> 00:09:56.010
  • AMOUNTS, THE PERFECT MEASUREMENTS, THE PERFECT
  • 00:09:56.040 --> 00:09:59.100
  • ORDER DOING EVERYTHING, PREPARING US FOR THE GOOD
  • 00:09:59.130 --> 00:10:02.210
  • WORKS WHICH HE PREPARED IN ADVANCE FOR US TO DO.
  • 00:10:02.240 --> 00:10:06.170
  • IT'S SO AMAZING TO THINK ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:10:06.200 --> 00:10:09.100
  • AND THAT WAS MY EXPERIENCE IN COLLEGE.
  • 00:10:09.130 --> 00:10:12.030
  • AND THAT CAN BE YOUR EXPERIENCE IN COLLEGE TOO.
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:14.130
  • GETTING YOURSELF READY, ALLOWING GOD TO PREPARE YOU.
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:16.130
  • ALLOWING GOD TO MAKE EVERYTHING PERFECT FOR THE
  • 00:10:16.160 --> 00:10:21.040
  • PLAN THAT HE HAS FOR YOUR LIFE, FOR THE PURPOSE THAT
  • 00:10:21.070 --> 00:10:25.040
  • HE CREATED YOU AND DESIGNED YOU AS HIS MASTERPIECE FOR
  • 00:10:25.070 --> 00:10:28.040
  • BECAUSE YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 00:10:28.070 --> 00:10:32.010
  • I CHALLENGE YOU TODAY TO RISE UP AND TAKE THAT STEP
  • 00:10:32.040 --> 00:10:35.030
  • TOWARDS YOUR HIGHER EDUCATION AND FIND OUT THIS
  • 00:10:35.060 --> 00:10:38.010
  • AMAZING PLAN THAT GOD HAS FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:38.040 --> 00:10:40.170
  • YOU CAN DO IT.
  • 00:10:40.200 --> 00:10:42.250
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:10:42.280 --> 00:10:48.090
  • - I THINK WE'VE NEGLECTED TO UNDERSTAND AND REMEMBER
  • 00:10:48.120 --> 00:10:49.250
  • IN THE UNITED STATES HOW VALUABLE EDUCATION IS.
  • 00:10:49.280 --> 00:10:51.290
  • AND THESE STUDENTS HERE THEY UNDERSTAND THAT THEY KNOW
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:55.040
  • IT'S THERE, THEY KNOW IT'S IMPORTANT.
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:57.200
  • AND PART OF IT IS BECAUSE THEY CLING SO TIGHTLY TO
  • 00:10:57.230 --> 00:10:59.110
  • EDUCATION BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO CLING TO.
  • 00:10:59.140 --> 00:11:01.150
  • THEY SEE PEOPLE WHO GET AN EDUCATION, GO TO UNIVERSITY,
  • 00:11:01.180 --> 00:11:03.130
  • GET A BETTER JOB.
  • 00:11:03.160 --> 00:11:06.130
  • THIS PARTICULAR PROJECT FOCUSES ON THE STORY OF THE
  • 00:11:06.160 --> 00:11:10.110
  • YOUTH AND THEM UNDERSTANDING HOW THEY CAN BEST TELL THEIR
  • 00:11:10.140 --> 00:11:12.150
  • STORY THROUGH A METHODOLOGY THAT WAS CREATED BY ONE OF
  • 00:11:12.180 --> 00:11:14.200
  • THE GROUP MEMBERS THAT'S HERE.
  • 00:11:14.230 --> 00:11:17.190
  • AND THE IDEA BEHIND IT IS FOR THEM TO LEARN TO SHARE
  • 00:11:17.220 --> 00:11:20.100
  • ABOUT THEIR LIVES SO THEY CAN PASS THAT ONTO THE REST
  • 00:11:20.130 --> 00:11:22.080
  • OF THE WORLD TO UNDERSTAND REALLY WHAT HAITIAN YOUTH
  • 00:11:22.110 --> 00:11:23.220
  • ARE LIKE AND WHAT THE CHALLENGES ARE OF THE
  • 00:11:23.250 --> 00:11:25.280
  • HAITIAN CULTURE AND WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE IN THEIR
  • 00:11:26.010 --> 00:11:27.160
  • FUTURE, LIKE WHAT IS GOING TO BE THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:11:27.190 --> 00:11:30.000
  • THEY'RE FACING?
  • 00:11:30.030 --> 00:11:32.000
  • FOR MANY OF THEM THEY START GOING TO SCHOOL AND THEY
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:33.210
  • START TO BELIEVE IN A FUTURE, BUT THEY LOSE HOPE
  • 00:11:33.240 --> 00:11:35.190
  • VERY QUICKLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE MANY CHALLENGES HERE IN
  • 00:11:35.220 --> 00:11:37.070
  • THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:11:37.100 --> 00:11:38.220
  • THE GOVERNMENT IS A CHALLENGE.
  • 00:11:38.250 --> 00:11:40.010
  • IT'S ALWAYS CHANGING.
  • 00:11:40.040 --> 00:11:41.180
  • AND THE GOVERNMENT IS IN MANY WAYS CORRUPT.
  • 00:11:41.210 --> 00:11:43.160
  • BUT THERE'S ALSO THOSE THAT WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:45.210
  • BUT THE STUDENTS LOSE HOPE QUICKLY BECAUSE THEY SEE
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:47.180
  • THEIR PARENTS, THEY SEE THEIR BROTHERS AND SISTERS
  • 00:11:47.210 --> 00:11:50.110
  • WHO ARE OLDER AND DON'T GET JOBS, WHO DON'T HAVE HOPE
  • 00:11:50.140 --> 00:11:52.020
  • OR A PURPOSE.
  • 00:11:52.050 --> 00:11:53.080
  • AND THEY QUICKLY LOSE THAT.
  • 00:11:53.110 --> 00:11:54.230
  • BUT THEY KNOW EDUCATION IS THE ONLY WAY TO SUCCEED.
  • 00:11:54.260 --> 00:11:58.130
  • - THANK YOU FOR LETTING US SPEND SOME TIME WITH YOU
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:01.240
  • THIS WEEK.
  • 00:12:01.270 --> 00:12:03.260
  • WE AS HUMAN BEINGS HAVE BEEN TELLING STORIES THE SAME WAY
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:10.200
  • FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS.
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:16.190
  • FROM THE OLDEST STORIES THAT WE HAVE BACK IN THE GREEKS
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:21.110
  • AND THE BABYLONIANS --
  • 00:12:21.140 --> 00:12:24.000
  • - THIS PROJECT IS DESIGNED TO HELP STUDENTS TELL THEIR STORY
  • 00:12:24.030 --> 00:12:26.000
  • ABOUT ALL THE THINGS THEY'VE FACED IN THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:29.100
  • ALL THE PROCESS THEY'VE GONE THROUGH.
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:32.030
  • AND THEN TO TAKE THAT DISCONNECT WITH THE FUTURE
  • 00:12:32.060 --> 00:12:35.060
  • AND BEGIN TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND THAT ALL OF THOSE
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:37.080
  • THINGS THEY'RE FACING AREN'T NECESSARILY ROAD BLOCKS OR
  • 00:12:37.110 --> 00:12:38.220
  • OBSTACLES BUT THEY'RE REALLY OPPORTUNITIES FOR THEM TO
  • 00:12:38.250 --> 00:12:41.020
  • TAKE THOSE THINGS AND TURN THEM AROUND.
  • 00:12:41.050 --> 00:12:43.100
  • AND TO SAY YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:12:43.130 --> 00:12:45.090
  • YOUTH IN HAITI CAN GET BEYOND THIS.
  • 00:12:45.120 --> 00:12:48.140
  • SO THE OBJECTIVE IS ONCE THEY TELL THEIR STORY, WE
  • 00:12:48.170 --> 00:12:51.220
  • WANT TO START CREATE A VISION WITHIN THEM OF WHAT
  • 00:12:51.250 --> 00:12:53.020
  • THAT FUTURE CAN LOOK LIKE.
  • 00:12:53.050 --> 00:12:55.040
  • AND BEYOND EVEN THOSE LIMITATIONS, BEYOND WHAT
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:56.130
  • THEY'VE SEEN BEFORE AND ALLOW THEM TO START TO DREAM.
  • 00:12:56.160 --> 00:12:58.200
  • AND IF WE CAN TEACH THEM HOW TO DREAM, THEN THINGS WILL
  • 00:12:58.230 --> 00:13:00.130
  • BEGIN TO CHANGE AS THEY GROW INTO THE LEADERS WE HOPE
  • 00:13:00.160 --> 00:13:02.000
  • THEY WILL BECOME.
  • 00:13:02.030 --> 00:13:03.190
  • THEY CAN START TO CHALLENGE OTHERS TO DREAM AND THEY CAN
  • 00:13:03.220 --> 00:13:05.080
  • CREATE THE OPPORTUNITIES, THEY CAN CREATE THE THINGS
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:07.090
  • THAT WILL TAKE HERE IN THIS COUNTRY TO RAISE UP LEADERS
  • 00:13:07.120 --> 00:13:09.020
  • IN THE FORMAT, IN THE FUNCTION AND ALL THE
  • 00:13:09.050 --> 00:13:12.020
  • PROJECTS AND THINGS THAT WILL TAKE THIS THING
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:14.050
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:13:14.080 --> 00:13:15.180
  • SO INSTEAD OF JUST EXISTING TODAY AND I'M GOING
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:17.110
  • TO SURVIVE TOMORROW LIKE EVERYONE ELSE HAS, WHAT I
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:19.090
  • WANT TO DO IS CREATE A DIFFERENT FUTURE STARTING TODAY.
  • 00:13:19.120 --> 00:13:22.030
  • SO THAT WHOLE PROJECT IS GOING TO BE DESIGNED TO HELP
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:25.080
  • THEM TO EXPRESS THAT NOT ONLY TO THOSE IN THE UNITED
  • 00:13:25.110 --> 00:13:28.240
  • STATES WHO CAN SPEAK ENGLISH BUT IT WILL ALSO TO SHARE
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:31.090
  • THAT WITH THEIR OWN PEOPLE, THEIR OWN YOUTH IN THEIR OWN
  • 00:13:31.120 --> 00:13:33.240
  • COUNTRY AROUND THEM AND FOR THE GOVERNMENT EVEN TO USE
  • 00:13:33.270 --> 00:13:35.190
  • THAT TO SAY THESE YOUTH HAVE A PASSION AND A VISION, AND
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:38.000
  • THEN OUR DESIRE IS TO HAVE THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
  • 00:13:38.030 --> 00:13:40.280
  • TO BE ABLE TO USE THAT, TO TAKE IT TO OTHERS TO SAY
  • 00:13:41.010 --> 00:13:42.270
  • LISTEN, WE HAVE A GENERATION OF YOUTH HERE THAT WANT TO
  • 00:13:43.000 --> 00:13:45.060
  • DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
  • 00:13:45.090 --> 00:13:47.010
  • HELP US DO THAT.
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:48.130
  • SO WE WANT TO SEE THIS PROJECT BE FORMED AND USED
  • 00:13:48.160 --> 00:13:51.030
  • IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS STARTING WITH THEIR STORIES
  • 00:13:51.060 --> 00:13:53.030
  • OF THESE STUDENTS THAT ARE HERE TODAY.
  • 00:13:53.060 --> 00:13:56.230
  • [MUSIC]

  • - HI. I'M PATTI MILLER.
  • 00:14:06.190 --> 00:14:07.230
  • I WORK FOR THE WILLIAM S. HART SCHOOL DISTRICT AS AN
  • 00:14:07.260 --> 00:14:09.120
  • ADAPTIVE P.E. SPECIALIST.
  • 00:14:09.150 --> 00:14:14.130
  • AND I WOULD NOT HAVE THE JOB I HAVE TODAY IF IT WEREN'T
  • 00:14:14.160 --> 00:14:17.100
  • FOR MY EDUCATION.
  • 00:14:17.130 --> 00:14:19.080
  • - FOR THOSE OF YOU SITTING ON THE COUCH AT HOME I THINK
  • 00:14:19.110 --> 00:14:21.070
  • THE BIGGEST THING THAT YOU CAN DO IS WORK IN THE
  • 00:14:21.100 --> 00:14:23.190
  • HUMANITARIAN RELIEF FIELD.
  • 00:14:23.220 --> 00:14:26.000
  • I'VE BEEN IN THE CORPORATE WORLD.
  • 00:14:26.030 --> 00:14:27.260
  • YEAH, THERE'S MONEY.
  • 00:14:27.290 --> 00:14:30.030
  • THERE'S THINGS THAT YOU CAN GATHER.
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:32.010
  • YOU CAN SUSTAIN FROM WEALTH.
  • 00:14:32.040 --> 00:14:34.270
  • BUT I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, YOU WILL NEVER SLEEP AS WELL AS
  • 00:14:35.000 --> 00:14:37.040
  • I DO WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'RE OUT THERE MAKING A
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:39.220
  • DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF YOUNG PEOPLE, OLD PEOPLE AND
  • 00:14:39.250 --> 00:14:41.260
  • ANYBODY IN BETWEEN BECAUSE YOU'RE PROVIDING FOOD,
  • 00:14:41.290 --> 00:14:43.220
  • CLOTHING AND HYGIENE ITEMS TO PEOPLE THAT OTHERWISE
  • 00:14:43.250 --> 00:14:45.160
  • WOULD NOT HAVE IT.
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:48.100
  • SO WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT HOW CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE,
  • 00:14:48.130 --> 00:14:50.140
  • THINK OF THIS, INSTEAD OF GIVING A HAND OUT, GIVE A
  • 00:14:50.170 --> 00:14:53.040
  • HAND UP.
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:55.080
  • AND WHEN YOU GIVE A HAND UP YOU'LL REALIZE THAT THE
  • 00:14:55.110 --> 00:14:57.220
  • HUMANITARIAN FIELD IS THE GREATEST JOB YOU CAN EVER HAVE.
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:15:01.280

  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:11.270
  • IS IT A, ELECTRICAL, ELECTRONICS AND
  • 00:15:12.000 --> 00:15:13.260
  • COMMUNICATIONS ENGINEERING, B, BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:17.100
  • AND MANAGEMENT, OR C, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING?
  • 00:15:17.130 --> 00:15:20.290
  • STAY TUNED FOR YOUR ANSWER.
  • 00:15:21.020 --> 00:15:23.290
  • - HOW IS THE CHURCH DOING WITH CHRISTIAN EDUCATION?
  • 00:15:24.020 --> 00:15:25.180
  • WELL, I'M OF THE BELIEF THAT THE CHURCH IS DOING JUST
  • 00:15:25.210 --> 00:15:28.080
  • FINE BECAUSE IT'S JESUS'.
  • 00:15:28.110 --> 00:15:31.060
  • AND HE CAN BE TRUSTED TO BUILD IT.
  • 00:15:31.090 --> 00:15:33.130
  • HE WILL BUILD HIS CHURCH AND THERE'S NOTHING THAT'S GOING
  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:36.130
  • TO PREVAIL AGAINST IT.
  • 00:15:36.160 --> 00:15:38.040
  • NOW, THE THING ON THE CORNER, THE THING WITH THE
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:43.080
  • STEEPLE ON THE CORNER, I CALL THAT THE SMALL C CHURCH.
  • 00:15:43.110 --> 00:15:46.110
  • THERE'S THE BIG C CHURCH WHICH JESUS IS STEWARDING
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:48.020
  • AND IT'S GOING TO DO JUST FINE.
  • 00:15:48.050 --> 00:15:50.260
  • THE THING ON THE CORNER THAT WE'RE INVOLVED IN, AND THAT
  • 00:15:50.290 --> 00:15:52.220
  • HAS A WAYS TO GO.
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:55.220
  • BUT I THINK THE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY IS A PART OF THAT.
  • 00:15:55.250 --> 00:15:57.270
  • I THINK THE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY IS RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:16:02.090
  • FOR TRAINING AND TEACHING AND EQUIPPING EVERY MEMBER
  • 00:16:02.120 --> 00:16:05.100
  • OF SOCIETY IN EVERY FIELD OF DISCIPLINE WHETHER IT'S
  • 00:16:05.130 --> 00:16:10.240
  • ECONOMICS OR BIOLOGY OR ART AND MUSIC AND THEOLOGY
  • 00:16:10.270 --> 00:16:14.000
  • AND BUSINESS.
  • 00:16:14.030 --> 00:16:15.270
  • EVERY FIELD OF STUDY, EVERY PROFESSION WE'RE EQUIPPING
  • 00:16:16.000 --> 00:16:21.000
  • PEOPLE TO KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT IN LIGHT OF
  • 00:16:21.030 --> 00:16:25.110
  • THE TRUTH AND GOODNESS OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:29.110
  • SO IT'S NOT ONLY DO THEY KNOW WHAT IS ETHICAL IN
  • 00:16:29.140 --> 00:16:32.140
  • BUSINESS, BUT CAN THEY ACTUALLY BE ETHICAL
  • 00:16:32.170 --> 00:16:36.210
  • IN BUSINESS?
  • 00:16:36.240 --> 00:16:40.100
  • SEE, THE DIFFERENCE IN A CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND
  • 00:16:40.130 --> 00:16:42.140
  • UNIVERSITY WOULD BE TO HELP THE CHURCH WITH IS NOT ONLY
  • 00:16:42.170 --> 00:16:45.100
  • IS LET'S JUST TAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THE DEEP WATER
  • 00:16:45.130 --> 00:16:49.290
  • HOE RISE ON WITH THE BIG EXPLOSION FROM THE GULF OF
  • 00:16:50.020 --> 00:16:50.190
  • MEXICO AND THE OIL SPILL.
  • 00:16:50.220 --> 00:16:53.000
  • SO IF THERE'S A DISCIPLE OF JESUS, ONE THAT'S DEDICATED
  • 00:16:53.030 --> 00:16:55.280
  • TO THE ETHICS AND MORALS AND REALITY THAT JESUS IS
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:59.030
  • ACTUALLY ASKING DISCIPLES OF HIS TO EMBODY, THE KIND OF
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:03.070
  • ETHICS AND WORLD VIEW, THEN WHEN THERE'S A DISCOVERY
  • 00:17:03.100 --> 00:17:07.060
  • THAT THERE'S A PART-- THAT'S DYSFUNCTIONAL, YOU DON'T
  • 00:17:07.090 --> 00:17:10.240
  • KEEP THAT SECRET.
  • 00:17:10.270 --> 00:17:13.270
  • YOU DON'T HIDE THAT REALITY.
  • 00:17:14.000 --> 00:17:16.100
  • AND YOU MAY LOSE YOUR JOB.
  • 00:17:16.130 --> 00:17:18.270
  • BUT YOU RECOGNIZE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY IS GREATER
  • 00:17:19.000 --> 00:17:22.050
  • THAN TO JUST KEEP YOUR JOB.
  • 00:17:22.080 --> 00:17:25.270
  • AND IF THAT PERSON IS WILLING TO TAKE THAT STAND,
  • 00:17:26.000 --> 00:17:27.130
  • THE WORLD IS A BETTER PLACE.
  • 00:17:27.160 --> 00:17:32.110
  • THE COMMON GOOD IS ALLOWED TO FLOURISH.
  • 00:17:32.140 --> 00:17:36.220
  • SO WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE WHOLE EARTH GROANS
  • 00:17:36.250 --> 00:17:41.010
  • WAITING FOR THE SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF GOD TO BE
  • 00:17:41.040 --> 00:17:44.010
  • REVEALED, THAT'S HOW IT GROANS.
  • 00:17:44.040 --> 00:17:48.020
  • SO CHRISTIAN EDUCATION, THE UNIVERSITY IS HERE TO ONLY
  • 00:17:48.050 --> 00:17:49.090
  • HELP OUR STUDENTS UNDERSTAND WHAT TO DO WHETHER IT'S IN
  • 00:17:49.120 --> 00:17:53.240
  • ENGINEERING IN THAT CASE OR WHETHER IT'S IN EXPLORATION
  • 00:17:53.270 --> 00:17:58.100
  • OR SCIENCE OR PHILOSOPHY OR EDUCATION.
  • 00:17:58.130 --> 00:18:03.060
  • NO. WHAT WE'RE ACTUALLY HELPING THEM TO DO IS NOT ONLY LEARN
  • 00:18:03.090 --> 00:18:05.120
  • WHAT IS RIGHT BUT TO DO THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:18:05.150 --> 00:18:10.190
  • AND THAT'S A VERY DIFFERENT OBJECTIVE THAN YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:18:10.220 --> 00:18:14.070
  • TO FIND IN MOST UNIVERSITIES.
  • 00:18:14.100 --> 00:18:17.010
  • SO IF YOU CAN PASS AN ETHICS COURSE IN MOST UNIVERSITIES,
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:20.040
  • YOU'RE GOOD.
  • 00:18:20.070 --> 00:18:21.230
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO ACTUALLY DEMONSTRATE THAT YOU ARE
  • 00:18:21.260 --> 00:18:23.230
  • ETHICAL IN MOST UNIVERSITY COURSES.
  • 00:18:23.260 --> 00:18:27.120
  • BUT HERE WE'RE ACTUALLY SAYING NO, AS A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:18:27.150 --> 00:18:29.240
  • UNIVERSITY WE WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO ACTUALLY KNOW AND
  • 00:18:29.270 --> 00:18:32.190
  • THEN DO THE RIGHT THING.
  • 00:18:32.220 --> 00:18:35.270
  • AND THAT'S WHERE I THINK CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND THE
  • 00:18:36.000 --> 00:18:38.090
  • CHURCH COMES TOGETHER.
  • 00:18:38.120 --> 00:18:40.080
  • - WELCOME BACK TO THE Q. AND A. SEGMENT.
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.290
  • YOUR QUESTION WAS WHICH MASTER'S DEGREE IS MORE
  • 00:18:42.020 --> 00:18:44.130
  • POPULAR WITH MEN?
  • 00:18:44.160 --> 00:18:46.040
  • YOUR CHOICES WERE ELECTRICAL, ELECTRONICS AND
  • 00:18:46.070 --> 00:18:48.160
  • COMMUNICATION, BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND
  • 00:18:48.190 --> 00:18:52.010
  • MANAGEMENT, OR MECHANICAL ENGINEERING.
  • 00:18:52.040 --> 00:18:54.110
  • YOUR ANSWER, B., BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND MANAGEMENT.
  • 00:18:54.140 --> 00:18:57.220
  • THAT LED THE WAY 2011 AND 2012 WITH MOST DEGREES IN
  • 00:18:57.250 --> 00:19:00.160
  • AMERICA WITH OVER 58.000.
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:05.040
  • THE CLOSEST TO IT, ELECTRICAL, ELECTRONICS,
  • 00:19:05.070 --> 00:19:08.000
  • COMMUNICATION AND ENGINEERING WITH 7.462.
  • 00:19:08.030 --> 00:19:13.250
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:19:13.280 --> 00:19:18.040
  • - THE OBJECTIVE IS TO TAKE EDUCATION AND TO DEVELOP
  • 00:19:18.070 --> 00:19:19.160
  • THE WHOLE PERSON.
  • 00:19:19.190 --> 00:19:21.070
  • DEVELOP NOT JUST THEIR MEANT THE SIDE BECAUSE THAT CAN BE
  • 00:19:21.100 --> 00:19:24.000
  • AFFECTED IN MANY WAYS BUT WE WANT TO HELP THEM DEVELOP
  • 00:19:24.030 --> 00:19:26.120
  • PHYSICALLY AND WITHIN THEIR MENTAL CAPACITY,
  • 00:19:26.150 --> 00:19:30.240
  • TO THINK DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:32.150
  • TO BE REASONABLE, TO BE ABLE TO LOOK AT THINGS AND CREATE
  • 00:19:32.180 --> 00:19:34.240
  • IDEAS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN CREATED YET,
  • 00:19:34.270 --> 00:19:37.120
  • NOT JUST BE FOLLOWERS.
  • 00:19:37.150 --> 00:19:39.150
  • BUT THE FOUNDATION OF ALL THAT IS HOW THEY THINK, AND
  • 00:19:39.180 --> 00:19:41.060
  • THE SCHOOLS NEED BEGIN HERE IN HAITI.
  • 00:19:41.090 --> 00:19:43.100
  • IT'S THE ONE SYSTEM THAT'S STRUCTURE IS BUILT HERE.
  • 00:19:43.130 --> 00:19:45.270
  • SO IF WE CAN FOCUS ON THAT STRUCTURE AND BUILD ON IT
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:48.090
  • AND USE EDUCATION AS A FOUNDATION IN A PRIORITY
  • 00:19:48.120 --> 00:19:52.090
  • WITHIN THAT, THEN THEIR POTENTIAL IS LIMITLESS.
  • 00:19:52.120 --> 00:19:54.270
  • THEY NEED TO SEE THEMSELVES DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:19:55.000 --> 00:19:57.270
  • YOU CAN'T LET PROBLEMS STOP THEM.
  • 00:19:58.000 --> 00:19:59.080
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:01.110
  • - THEY HAVE TO BE PROBLEM SOLVERS, AND ONCE WE SOLVE
  • 00:20:01.140 --> 00:20:03.090
  • IT IN THOSE 3 SCHOOLS, WE CAN SAY HERE'S THE SYSTEM WE
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:05.180
  • CAN SET UP SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:20:05.210 --> 00:20:07.110
  • ONCE WE HAVE SUCCESS, IT'S MUCH EASIER TO FIND FUNDING.
  • 00:20:07.140 --> 00:20:09.210
  • - YES.
  • 00:20:09.240 --> 00:20:11.090
  • - IT'S MUCH EASIER TON FIND OTHER PEOPLE THAT WILL HELP.
  • 00:20:11.120 --> 00:20:13.060
  • AND THEN IN YOUR BUDGET YOU SAY WELL, ALL OF OUR SCHOOLS
  • 00:20:13.090 --> 00:20:16.090
  • NEED TO ADD THIS.
  • 00:20:16.120 --> 00:20:18.210
  • WE NEED TO PUT THAT IN A BUDGET AND WORK WITH THE
  • 00:20:18.240 --> 00:20:21.000
  • COMPANIES THAT ARE PROVIDE THAT TO MAKE IT SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:20:21.030 --> 00:20:22.270
  • SO THAT WOULD BE ONE EXAMPLE OF TECHNOLOGY.
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:25.030
  • ONE OF OUR OBJECTIVES WAS TO MAKE SURE WE SAT DOWN WITH
  • 00:20:25.060 --> 00:20:28.220
  • MAXIME AND ELIZABETH WANTED TO DO THAT TO FIND OUT WHAT
  • 00:20:28.250 --> 00:20:31.130
  • HIS VISION WAS, WHAT HE SAW AS THE CHALLENGES.
  • 00:20:31.160 --> 00:20:34.250
  • BUT ALSO TO AS THE DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION, WHAT HE WANTED
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:37.250
  • TO DO IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:20:37.280 --> 00:20:40.060
  • SO WE HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO ASK HIM MANY QUESTIONS ABOUT
  • 00:20:40.090 --> 00:20:42.240
  • WHAT HE WAS SEEING HAPPEN POSITIVELY.
  • 00:20:42.270 --> 00:20:45.120
  • HE SAID THERE ARE POSITIVE THINGS HAPPENING.
  • 00:20:45.150 --> 00:20:47.100
  • HE'S SEEING SOME GOOD THINGS GO ON WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT
  • 00:20:47.130 --> 00:20:49.160
  • HAS GIVING THEM MORE FUNDING TO HELP MOVE THEM AHEAD.
  • 00:20:49.190 --> 00:20:52.260
  • HE SAID THERE'S WAY TOO MANY OBSTACLES THAT HE DOESN'T
  • 00:20:52.290 --> 00:20:55.030
  • FEEL LIKE WHETHER MOVING AHEAD IT'S NOT GOING TO
  • 00:20:55.060 --> 00:20:57.190
  • CHANGE THINGS ENOUGH.
  • 00:20:57.220 --> 00:20:59.220
  • SO AS WE WANT THROUGH THAT PROCESS WITH HIM, IT WAS THE
  • 00:20:59.250 --> 00:21:02.080
  • BEGINNING OF HIS THINKING THROUGHOUT THE WEEK AS HE
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:05.000
  • HEARD THE THINGS THAT TED SAID AND THE STUDENTS WERE
  • 00:21:05.030 --> 00:21:07.120
  • SHARING AS WE HAD MEETINGS WITH THE TEACHERS, EVERY
  • 00:21:07.150 --> 00:21:10.090
  • TIME I COULD SEE MAXIME COMING BACK TO ME SAYING,
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:12.120
  • WHAT ABOUT THIS?
  • 00:21:12.150 --> 00:21:13.290
  • OR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS THAT WE CAN DO THIS.
  • 00:21:14.020 --> 00:21:16.000
  • OR THAT SEEMS EASY.
  • 00:21:16.030 --> 00:21:17.210
  • SO HE WENT FROM SAYING HEY, THERE'S A SCHOOL WITH A LOT
  • 00:21:17.240 --> 00:21:19.190
  • OF PROBLEMS TO TAKING US TO A ROOM AND SAYING THIS IS
  • 00:21:19.220 --> 00:21:21.250
  • THE FUTURE COMPUTER LAB AND THIS IS WHAT I WANT TO SEE
  • 00:21:21.280 --> 00:21:23.240
  • AND HERE'S HOW WE CAN DEAL WITH IT, AND HERE'S HOW
  • 00:21:23.270 --> 00:21:25.210
  • WE'RE GOING TO BUDGET THIS.
  • 00:21:25.240 --> 00:21:27.140
  • BECAUSE THE VERY LAST DAY AFTER ALL THAT AND ALL THE
  • 00:21:27.170 --> 00:21:29.170
  • DISCUSSIONS AND ALL THE THINGS WERE HAPPENING,
  • 00:21:29.200 --> 00:21:31.260
  • MAXIME WALKED UP AND SAID AFTER EVERYTHING HE'S SEEN,
  • 00:21:31.290 --> 00:21:34.030
  • THERE'S ONE THING HE BELIEVES THAT CAN TRULY HAVE
  • 00:21:34.060 --> 00:21:36.060
  • THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE THE YOUTH IN THE COUNTRY.
  • 00:21:36.090 --> 00:21:39.030
  • AND IF THE YOUTH CHANGE, THEN THE WHOLE COUNTRY
  • 00:21:39.060 --> 00:21:41.060
  • CAN CHANGE.
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:42.250
  • AND HE SAID WE WON'T SEE IT TODAY.
  • 00:21:42.280 --> 00:21:44.210
  • WE'LL SEE IT IN 15 OR 20 YEARS, BUT HE SAID THIS IS
  • 00:21:44.240 --> 00:21:46.160
  • THE BEGINNING POINT.
  • 00:21:46.190 --> 00:21:48.100
  • SO HE SAID WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:49.280
  • WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
  • 00:21:50.010 --> 00:21:51.140
  • AND I BEGAN TO SEE WHAT DO YOU SEE?
  • 00:21:51.170 --> 00:21:53.010
  • WHAT'S THE GREATEST NEED?
  • 00:21:53.040 --> 00:21:54.190
  • SO WE BEGAN TO LOOK A FEW OF THAT PROJECTS AND WE WANT
  • 00:21:54.220 --> 00:21:56.210
  • THAT STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE TO BE SOMETHING THAT WE
  • 00:21:56.240 --> 00:21:58.210
  • CONTINUE TO HELP THEM UNDERSTAND THE GOAL, BUT
  • 00:21:58.240 --> 00:22:00.260
  • THEN HOW DO THEY INCREASE THAT STANDARD OF EXCELLENCE?
  • 00:22:00.290 --> 00:22:04.010
  • BECAUSE WHAT'S EXCELLENT FOR US IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN
  • 00:22:04.040 --> 00:22:06.040
  • WHAT'S EXCELLENT FOR THEM RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:22:06.070 --> 00:22:08.030
  • BUT REALLY EXCELLENCE IS HOW DO WE GET TO A PLACE WHERE
  • 00:22:08.060 --> 00:22:10.160
  • WE SET THE PATTERN AND THE PACE FOR WHAT WE WANT
  • 00:22:10.190 --> 00:22:12.120
  • EXCELLENCE TO BE RATHER THAN DEPENDING ON SOMEONE ELSE TO
  • 00:22:12.150 --> 00:22:14.030
  • DO IT FOR US.
  • 00:22:14.060 --> 00:22:15.200
  • THAT'S WHAT MAXIME SAID.
  • 00:22:15.230 --> 00:22:17.020
  • HE SAID WE'VE GOT TO QUIT FOLLOWING.
  • 00:22:17.050 --> 00:22:18.260
  • WE HAVE TO BECOME LEADERS.
  • 00:22:18.290 --> 00:22:20.170
  • AND THAT WAS EXCITING TO SEE HIM GET THAT VISION TO SEE
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:21.290
  • WE HAVE SOMETHING TO OFFER THE WORLD.
  • 00:22:22.020 --> 00:22:23.270
  • AND SOMEONE IN THAT POSITION OF GOVERNMENT TO BE ABLE TO
  • 00:22:24.000 --> 00:22:25.190
  • SAY THAT TO PEOPLE INCLUDING PEOPLE IN HIS
  • 00:22:25.220 --> 00:22:27.040
  • OWN DEPARTMENT.
  • 00:22:27.070 --> 00:22:28.180
  • AND HE BEGAN TO TAKE THOSE THINGS ON AND OWN THEM AND
  • 00:22:28.210 --> 00:22:30.030
  • BEGAN TO EXPRESS THAT TO OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:30.060 --> 00:22:31.140
  • HE SAID THAT TO THE TEACHERS THAT WERE THERE.
  • 00:22:31.170 --> 00:22:33.040
  • HE SAID WE NEED TO START TO BECOME LEADERS.
  • 00:22:33.070 --> 00:22:34.190
  • NOT JUST MEANING IN THE SCHOOL BUT WE NEED TO BECOME
  • 00:22:34.220 --> 00:22:38.260
  • LEADERS IN OUR COUNTRY AND OFFER THAT AND SEE THAT IN
  • 00:22:38.290 --> 00:22:40.150
  • THE FUTURE BEYOND THAT.
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:41.280
  • FOR ME, IT'S SUCH A PRIVILEGE TO BE ABLE TO BE A
  • 00:22:42.010 --> 00:22:44.180
  • PART OF THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:44.210 --> 00:22:47.040
  • THEY ARE A DIFFERENT CULTURE, VERY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:22:47.070 --> 00:22:49.050
  • BUT IT'S SUCH A PRIVILEGE TO BE PART OF ALL THAT.
  • 00:22:49.080 --> 00:22:51.010
  • AND I REALLY AM EXCITED ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE
  • 00:22:51.040 --> 00:22:53.250
  • A PART OF THAT AND TO HELP OTHER LEADERS RISE UP LIKE

  • ELIZABETH AND TED THAT CAN TAKE ON PARTS OF THE PROJECT

  • THAT NO ONE CAN DO ALONE.
  • 00:22:57.060 --> 00:23:00.060
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE ALL OF US TOGETHER TO REALLY
  • 00:23:00.090 --> 00:23:01.190
  • MAKE THAT HAPPEN.
  • 00:23:01.220 --> 00:23:03.160
  • AND IT'S SUCH A GREAT PRIVILEGE TO BE A PART OF
  • 00:23:03.190 --> 00:23:04.270
  • ALL THAT AND TO SEE IT HAPPEN.
  • 00:23:05.000 --> 00:23:06.050
  • AND I REALLY LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING WHAT GOD IS GOING TO
  • 00:23:06.080 --> 00:23:07.130
  • DO IN THE MIDST OF ALL THAT.
  • 00:23:07.160 --> 00:23:09.240
  • [MUSIC]

  • - MY NAME IS JACKIE KING, AND I'M THE CO FOUNDER OF
  • 00:23:16.110 --> 00:23:17.270
  • LIBERATE APPAREL.
  • 00:23:18.000 --> 00:23:19.080
  • I WOULD NOT HAVE ACCOMPLISHED WHAT I'VE DONE
  • 00:23:19.110 --> 00:23:20.290
  • IN HAITI AND WHAT I'M GOING TO CONTINUE TO DO
  • 00:23:21.020 --> 00:23:23.110
  • WITHOUT MY DEGREE.
  • 00:23:23.140 --> 00:23:24.150
  • - LAST YEAR I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO FULFILL A
  • 00:23:24.180 --> 00:23:26.170
  • LONG HELD DREAM AND CHECK SOMETHING OFF MY BUCKET
  • 00:23:26.200 --> 00:23:29.040
  • LIST, AND I'VE GOT TO SAY I WAS PRETTY NERVOUS. WHY?
  • 00:23:29.070 --> 00:23:32.000
  • WELL, I GOT TO INTERVIEW DOLLY PARTON FOR MY
  • 00:23:32.030 --> 00:23:35.140
  • TELEVISION SHOW.
  • 00:23:35.170 --> 00:23:37.010
  • LISTEN, YOU'VE GOT TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN I WAS
  • 00:23:37.040 --> 00:23:39.010
  • WORKING MY FIRST BROADCASTING JOB AS AN LOW
  • 00:23:39.040 --> 00:23:42.000
  • WATT RADIO STATION AT A TEENAGER DOWN IN HOPE,
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:44.130
  • ARKANSAS, I WORE OUT THE GROOVES ON DOLLY'S VERSION
  • 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:47.260
  • OF MULE SKINNER BLUES.
  • 00:23:47.290 --> 00:23:50.060
  • AS I GREW OLDER AND LEARNED MORE ABOUT MUSIC AND MORE
  • 00:23:50.090 --> 00:23:54.150
  • ABOUT THE WORLD, MY ADMIRATION OF DOLLY JUST HIT
  • 00:23:54.180 --> 00:23:55.160
  • THE BIG TIME.
  • 00:23:55.190 --> 00:23:57.040
  • SO HERE I WAS, DOLLY WAS PARTNERING ONE OF MY
  • 00:23:57.070 --> 00:23:58.220
  • FAVORITE BUSINESSES, CRACKER BARREL, AS PART OF CRACKER
  • 00:23:58.250 --> 00:24:00.240
  • BARREL'S MUSIC PROGRAM.
  • 00:24:00.270 --> 00:24:02.270
  • AND THEY INVITED ME TO TALK TO HER. WOW!
  • 00:24:03.000 --> 00:24:05.120
  • WELL, THE INTERVIEW WENT REALLY WELL.
  • 00:24:05.150 --> 00:24:08.160
  • I WAS CHARMED BY DOLLY'S GENUINENESS AND ENERGY
  • 00:24:08.190 --> 00:24:10.090
  • AND INTELLIGENCE.
  • 00:24:10.120 --> 00:24:12.240
  • OH, AND I GOT TO CHOW DOWN ON SOME GREAT CRACKER BARREL
  • 00:24:12.270 --> 00:24:14.250
  • BISCUITS AS WELL.
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:16.240
  • IN FACT, EVERY TIME I VISIT THAT RESTAURANT OR EVEN
  • 00:24:16.270 --> 00:24:19.200
  • PLACES LIKE THIS, I'M REMINDED OF THE FRUITS
  • 00:24:19.230 --> 00:24:22.140
  • OF THE SPIRIT.
  • 00:24:22.170 --> 00:24:24.120
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:24:24.150 --> 00:24:25.270
  • LOVE, JOY, PEACE, PATIENCE, KINDNESS, GOODNESS,
  • 00:24:26.000 --> 00:24:29.150
  • FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS AND SELF-CONTROL.
  • 00:24:29.180 --> 00:24:33.160
  • THESE ARE THE ESSENCE OF THE BEST OF HUMANITY.
  • 00:24:33.190 --> 00:24:36.010
  • TREATING PEOPLE AS IF THEY'RE SPECIAL GUESTS,
  • 00:24:36.040 --> 00:24:38.230
  • SERVING WITH A SMILE, BEING PATIENT AND BEING KIND
  • 00:24:38.260 --> 00:24:41.010
  • AND GENTLE.
  • 00:24:41.040 --> 00:24:44.030
  • PEOPLE LIKE DOLLY PARTON SYMBOLIZE THOSE QUALITIES.
  • 00:24:44.060 --> 00:24:46.260
  • AND WHEN PEOPLE THINK OF YOU, I WONDER WHAT QUALITIES
  • 00:24:46.290 --> 00:24:48.200
  • DO THEY THINK OF?
  • 00:24:48.230 --> 00:24:51.170
  • WE AREN'T ALL MEGA STARS LIKE DOLLY PARTON OR ICONIC
  • 00:24:51.200 --> 00:24:53.230
  • BUSINESSES LIKE CRACKER BARREL.
  • 00:24:53.260 --> 00:24:56.120
  • BUT WE CAN SHOW LOVE, PATIENCE AND SELF-CONTROL.
  • 00:24:56.150 --> 00:24:59.270
  • WE CAN EVEN MAKE PEOPLE FEEL SPECIAL NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE.
  • 00:25:00.020 --> 00:25:03.140
  • I'M MIKE HUCKABEE, AND I HOPE YOU'LL THINK ABOUT THIS
  • 00:25:03.170 --> 00:25:05.150
  • THIS VERY DAY.
  • 00:25:05.180 --> 00:25:09.080
  • - WE TEND TO THINK OF TEACHERS AS WOEFULLY
  • 00:25:09.110 --> 00:25:11.050
  • UNDERPAID, BUT IN REALITY TEACHERS CAN EARN A DECENT
  • 00:25:11.080 --> 00:25:13.200
  • LIVING THE FIRST YEAR AFTER GRADUATING.
  • 00:25:13.230 --> 00:25:16.110
  • ACCORDING TO CAREERPATH.COM. TOP 20 HIGHEST PAYING JOBS STRAIGHT
  • 00:25:16.140 --> 00:25:20.000
  • OUT OF COLLEGE, A HIGH SCHOOL TEACHER RANKED 11TH.
  • 00:25:20.030 --> 00:25:26.140
  • - I THINK AN EDUCATION IS IMPORTANT I THINK SOMETIMES
  • 00:25:26.170 --> 00:25:28.110
  • WE LOOK AT IT AND SEE IT AS A DIFFICULT TASK AHEAD OF US.
  • 00:25:28.140 --> 00:25:31.020
  • BUT FOR ME I KNOW AS A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT, I WENT
  • 00:25:31.050 --> 00:25:34.220
  • FROM BEING A 3.7 GPA STUDENT,
  • 00:25:34.250 --> 00:25:37.140
  • HAD MY DAD PASS AWAY RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF
  • 00:25:37.170 --> 00:25:39.230
  • HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:25:39.260 --> 00:25:41.140
  • DROPPED DOWN TO LIKE A 1. 5 OR 1. 6
  • 00:25:41.170 --> 00:25:43.170
  • WITHIN A YEAR AND BARELY GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL.
  • 00:25:43.200 --> 00:25:47.080
  • AND FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE I GOT ADVICE, WELL, COLLEGE IS
  • 00:25:47.110 --> 00:25:50.170
  • NOT FOR YOU.
  • 00:25:50.200 --> 00:25:52.110
  • WHATEVER IN THAT SENSE.
  • 00:25:52.140 --> 00:25:54.090
  • SO I THINK IT CAN BE DIFFICULT.
  • 00:25:54.120 --> 00:25:56.160
  • PEOPLE CAN HAVE EDUCATIONAL CHALLENGES, BUT YOU CAN
  • 00:25:56.190 --> 00:25:58.160
  • GET OVER THEM.
  • 00:25:58.190 --> 00:26:00.210
  • YOU HAVE TO BE MOTIVATED.
  • 00:26:00.240 --> 00:26:02.240
  • FOR ME IT TOOK THAT MOTIVATION OF GOING
  • 00:26:02.270 --> 00:26:04.210
  • BACK TO SCHOOL.
  • 00:26:04.240 --> 00:26:06.090
  • AND AGAIN, AT FIRST I WANTED JUST A DEGREE.
  • 00:26:06.120 --> 00:26:09.120
  • BUT THEN I EVENTUALLY IT WAS ABOUT GETTING THAT EDUCATION
  • 00:26:09.150 --> 00:26:12.100
  • AND GETTING THE DEGREE ALONG THE WAY.
  • 00:26:12.130 --> 00:26:15.100
  • IT'S NOT ALWAYS EASY.
  • 00:26:15.130 --> 00:26:17.090
  • I HAD REAL MATH DIFFICULTIES THROUGHOUT COLLEGE, BUT IT
  • 00:26:17.120 --> 00:26:21.030
  • WAS SOMETHING ONCE YOU KIND OF OVERCOME THAT, GET THE
  • 00:26:21.060 --> 00:26:23.110
  • HELP THAT YOU NEED, IT'S REALLY SATISFYING TO KIND OF
  • 00:26:23.140 --> 00:26:27.210
  • MOVE ON AND LEARN NEW THINGS IN THAT WAY AND BE ABLE TO
  • 00:26:27.240 --> 00:26:31.240
  • COME TO AN UNDERSTANDING AND A PLACE THAT YOU WEREN'T
  • 00:26:31.270 --> 00:26:34.130
  • ABLE TO GO TO BEFORE.
  • 00:26:34.160 --> 00:26:37.040
  • AND FOR ME I WENT ALL THE WAY TO MY MASTER'S.
  • 00:26:37.070 --> 00:26:39.170
  • COULD HAVE GONE ONTO A PH.D.
  • 00:26:39.200 --> 00:26:41.160
  • BUT MY CAREER TOOK ME DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:26:41.190 --> 00:26:43.220
  • SO FROM A KID WHO WAS ABOUT TO FAIL OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL
  • 00:26:43.250 --> 00:26:46.100
  • TO BE ABLE TO GO ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO MY MASTER'S
  • 00:26:46.130 --> 00:26:49.010
  • DEGREE I FEEL VERY ACCOMPLISHED ACADEMICALLY
  • 00:26:49.040 --> 00:26:51.280
  • EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A STRUGGLE.
  • 00:26:52.010 --> 00:26:53.190
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:26:53.220 --> 00:27:04.060
  • - WE'VE HEARD SOME REALLY INSPIRING STORIES OF HOW
  • 00:27:04.090 --> 00:27:05.180
  • PEOPLE CHANGE THEIR LIVES THROUGH EDUCATION.
  • 00:27:05.210 --> 00:27:08.030
  • BY COMMITTING TO FINISHING THEIR DEGREES AND FOCUSING
  • 00:27:08.060 --> 00:27:10.270
  • ON THEIR GOALS, THESE INDIVIDUALS EXCELLED IN
  • 00:27:11.000 --> 00:27:14.080
  • THEIR FIELDS.
  • 00:27:14.110 --> 00:27:15.260
  • BUT MORE THAN BEING SUCCESSFUL IN THEIR CAREERS,
  • 00:27:15.290 --> 00:27:17.230
  • THESE PEOPLE UNDERSTOOD SOMETHING EVEN MORE
  • 00:27:17.260 --> 00:27:19.290
  • SIGNIFICANT, THE IMPORTANCE OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN
  • 00:27:20.020 --> 00:27:23.050
  • FULFILLING THEIR DIVINE CALLING IN LIFE.
  • 00:27:23.080 --> 00:27:25.150
  • THAT'S SOMETHING THAT HAS AN ETERNAL IMPACT.
  • 00:27:25.180 --> 00:27:28.150
  • I HOPE YOU ENJOYED ANOTHER LOOK AT HOW EDUCATION TRULY
  • 00:27:28.180 --> 00:27:31.120
  • IS A HIGHER CALLING.
