there will be hundreds of Election Observers, both national and international, scattered around the country to do just that: observe.  In so many places in the world, as here, elections are often questioned as to their fairness and transparency.  As you read, this will be my fifth time doing this.  I have come to have deep feelings for this country since serving here with CRC World Missions from 1995-1999; during that time was our first experience with a Presidential Election which by Constitution occurs every five years.  While I return in retirement almost every year, I make it a point to be here to contribute a grain of sand toward constructing a more healthy society/country.    As you read, this is my fifth time of service.
