The item in Sunday's Gazette that Greg Mortenson's "Three Cups of Tea" book would be featured in a December magazine motivates me to share a similar item of interest to the many Mortenson fans and friends. The Nov. 6 issue of The Christian Science Monitor gave a full page to the good work his Central Asia Institute is doing and the young woman who invited him into her tent to share two cups of tea during his recent trip to Kashmir after the latest earthquake.

At Mortenson's request, a CAI worker managed to procure permission from Naseer's father and government for her to come to MSU in Bozeman, where she is now a dedicated student! It is a fascinating and rewarding story.
