And now Candace would like to add a note. Mark came into my organization at an early stage in this project, by making some important suggestions to me about handling various difficulties with my email. These discussion eventually led to him suggesting I should have a forum. I accepted but wrote back I needed a website, and so our website was born. I was impressed with his help and dedication to getting the website up, making the best of our limited resources, both of time and money. I got into the mix, because of time and limited finances and contributed what I learned in managing the website.
We both realized that the original choice of a free software package was not serving us very well. It was poorly designed, confusing to readers and difficult to work with the administration panel. So we began a search for something better and I found myself in a new world in this seach for acceptable software for our main site.
It became apparent to me we would need to purchase our software to be able to have one that worked for us, and for the writers who would be posting to the site. And so we choose an expensive package and asked for donations to assist us in being able to purchase it. So in this I will thank those who follow this work, who came forth with donations and made the acquisition of the software possible. What a great contribution to AbundantHope you made!
Mark stood up and did what I needed most to get AbundantHope off the ground. He provided a website and his time, so that I was not dependant on others for publishing the works. And so I did want him on my team for both his dedication to the vision of AbundantHope and for his obvious skills that would serve so well. Welcome Mark, and it is in tears of gratitude, I add these little comments today. Take care, Candace
PS. Recently Sananda Immanuel (Esu) and I merged our separate teams into one team, for clarity and better service. Mark thus will also assist the Planetary Prince in the various IT goals around setting up the International Headquarters and elsewhere as needed.
