    I dont know what to say? Umm, Im speechless. Ah, I guess Id like to thank my mom and dad for putting me in school so I could learn how to write, second I guess I have to thank my teachers....but above all, the glory goes to God for giving me hands to write and a brain to think! PS. when can I pick up my prize for being your #1 best mailer?

    Dear Erin

    I had been wondering how things had been with you and the team from WMB. Thank you for writing so faithfully and quite honestly too. The graphic nature of your last post is difficult to process. I'm sitting having a coffee right now after reading the news online and going for a long walk. Rwanda seems like the land in Shrek2, "Far, far away". But the details of what you have written are right in my face... just brutal; just sickening; evil...

    Jenn showed us those pics when she was here of those two churches. I see the lifeless eyes of those three people in my mind even after all these months. That one women really was dead yet breathing physically. How did you ever hold it together? (perhaps you didn't or couldn't) Anyhow, thank you for the truth in your words - they are hard but they are reality. It's comforting for me to hear of your continued hope in the redemption of this land through the power of God.

    I would be interested to know more about the relationships you are forming with any specific people in Rwanda? Who has become a close friend to you so far? Any soul mates to help you process this experience with?

    By the way, and I haven't told Jenna this yet but - Bill and Peggy Fitch had their annual "Garden Sale" last weekend and they dedicated all of the donations to the ministry of "The Women of the Hill" with Mamma C there etc - they raised $1500 in 8 hours - can you let Jenn know for me and tell her that Bill (the wonderful English gardener that he is) wanted to give to a ministry of ITC that needed to GROW stuff so all the gift is open for Jenn to use as she wishes with that ministry they wanted her to be able to buy stuff to help the women grown more and more food so seed, tools, implements etc... plus medicine etc

    If Tilley is still there please tell her this also and send her our love from ITC - please give Jenn a kiss for me and tell her I've lost 20 lbs (since u left girl - u should see the ABS now :) and am focusing on getting healthier so that trips abroad can happen. And also, tell her that I really want to speak to her secret donor in Parry Sound on her behalf if she would simply give me the green light...

    Love and love to you dear Erin - thank you for all your writing and communications
