Dear James
I am hoping that what I hear from you today is:

1. Mako has improved very much
2. You continue to feel better taking Benedryl/Allergy Medicine
3. Roo is getting over his flu symptoms
4. The Post Office called and they have your packages!

Tell me this is all true. If not, we continue to pray anyway, but give me report on how things are going.
Much love,


Good Day Mama Hicks,

Seems as if most of your wish and prayers did come true today. Mako, much improvement and better smiles this morning, i do not have the time to drop him off at all so he went on his own. Roo kind of fighting the flu and looks ok, Me much better with the funny symptoms and last of all, Post responded with two packages containing medication from Brittany and Savannah in Tennessee, Tooth Paste from Mr. James Kaprf and lots of food and vitamins from you. Guess what, the DVD was in it too! I now can watch what all the Nazareth House Supporters have been looking at this past few weeks.

Thanks a lot and we all look forward too see this DVD tonight when everybody is around. I will send pictures of medication tomorrow provided internet server went well when i go down town. We continue to pray for more post to come in. Before i forget, one of the post men who has been helping me there fell ill a week ago and is currently admitted suffering from stroke. See, thats why i could not know that mails were there. He had no chance to call me. His name is Pa Mansaray. I will visit him soon and report back to you. He is kind of an aged man now but he cannot stop working when he has to take care of the family. Pray for him
Oh well, this is all for now.
Love you and thanks for the sausage, screw drivers, snack bars, vitamins and all.
