Email from James in Freetown

Good Morning Mama Hicks & All,

Thanks for the wonderful documentary DVD movie. I think it is an excellent job done. It is packed with all that we need to show people. I was in tears at the same time smiled in some part of it. The music was well selected. The Phil Collins song and the man hitting the rock matched well. I liked the Mende traditional song and you dancing on the beach.
Like i said yesterday, if only i had the money, i will help support the work here. But i am doing it in my own way now, wish i could do more.
Kadijah, Mako and the kids like it too. Roo was just shouting and pointing at me when ever he sees me on the video. The girls looked at it over and over.
It is a good collection you made and from the way i looked at it, it was too much job. You need a credit for this and hope and pray that people come in to help. There are many NGO's (non governmental organization) here DOING LESS than this but getting great attention and huge support why not Nazareth House Apostolate where we are making a big positive difference in many lives. I wish I could convince people to help us buy the compound and truck to keep this work going.
Thanks a million for that wonderful job.
