it was a pleasure to see this man of faith in his home.
I believe there are two types of people in this world, those who drink tea and those who do not. As a person who belongs to the latter I was never an avid drinker of tea or a fan to be honest.
This all changed however when I met Mr. Merrill (Abu Dilmah) for the first time in UAE a few years ago during a family-business conference where the company I belong to, Nehmeh, was invited to speak. Mr. Merrill is undoubtedly a gifted story teller and I enjoyed listening to his speech about his life, his experience and the challenges he faced along the journey. After chatting on the sidelines
of the event, he asked me to visit him in Sri Lanka and I promised to do so. I fulfilled that promise along with my family and I must say, it was a pleasure to see this man of faith in his home. I remember being most impressed not by his success nor his triumphs nor his great impact nor his humility but of his gift of faith. I remember when he was asked who would he thank most of all, he uttered two words: Jesus Christ.
