I really needed a good news story today and this one filled the bill:
Magnus Macfarlane-Barrow’s first experience of delivering aid was to drive a Land Rover crammed with food, clothing and medicine from the
Highlands of Scotland down to Bosnia. At the time he was a salmon farmer: he had taken just a week’s holiday to do it. When he got back, his family
shed was bulging with aid that had poured in from friends and friends of friends. He quit his job, sold his house, and learned to drive articulated
lorries. Now, about 20 years later, his charity Mary’s Meals feeds half a million children every day.
This story began when at age 14, Magnus, made a pilgrimage to Medjugorje. Medjugorje is a village in western Bosnia and Herzegovina where Marian
apparitions have allegedly been occurring to six (then) children since the 1981.
The difference one person, with an idea and the will to make it happen, can make in the world is amazing. It is quite a "feel good" story. Hope you
take the time to read this touching story. I'm glad I did.
