A Letter From Tytoo Gardens : A Christian Mission for Children
October 3, 2002
Just a quick note to let you know I received your box containing pens/pencils, erasers,
and sundry items. Of course you know we will use these items throughout the year.
Thank you for thinking of us. Also, I received a copy of your letter to Nelson re:
scholarship funding. I have no knowledge of this blessing, however, it may be Nelson
included these amounts in a larger amount and simply forgot to tell me.
I have received scholarship funding from another missionary here in Haiti and am
working to place three additional children in school this month. Again, our "thank
you" for the sharing of your time and resources with us, to Judi, for her efforts on
our behalf, and the Church of the Nativity for caring.
With love from the children here at Tytoo Gardens.
In His service,
P.S. The kids and I love the pictures. We sat around one night looking and laughing
(mostly at my red fade) and had a wonderful time. Thanks again.
