I have often observed groups of people and how they function...together. I remember being in the street in Pasbwadom with a bunch of young men. One person says, "I think I'll go play soccer." Another says, "I would go to." But they both sit there. Then someone says, "Joe, are you going to play soccer?" And Joe thinks for a second. Everyone remains seated. Then Joe says, "Yep." Immediately the whole crowd stands up and leaves...to go play soccer. Joe is a leader. If he says no in that situation, nobody goes. If he says yes, they all go.
He wasn't voted into that place. No one ever nominated him. It is who he is. People naturally get behind a leader.
ASAPH is blessed with a good leader. Jude is our soccer coach. He is a mover and a shaker.
The road into our town was being overgrown with tree branches. It could cause accidents easily. Motorcycles, trucks, and cars come flying down the road and can't see what is up ahead. Add in goats, donkeys, and cows on the loose, and you have a recipe for disaster. Jude saw the problem. He got a group of guys together (many were AAF kids), and he found a willing driver with a vehicle (Thanks Randall!) Jude and the guys took their machetes and made the road safer for everyone. Nobody asked them to. Nobody paid them to. But they did. That doesn't happen without a leader.
When you support ASAPH, you support Jude and many others as they make today better.
