It was wonderful and honourable to have hosted the most warm hearted person, whose efforts and gifts of made a great impact on our family.
On behalf of our family and my self, kindly may I register my sincere appreciation to all you have done to my niece Mercy. Who indeed has become a role model to our children and siblings, all who are now emulating her achievements. Mercy have showed that hard work and discipline pays. This is made possible thro' your personal financial input and compassionate moral concern.
We are glad that thro' Mercy's Mentorship we have three ladies and two sons who are in university and Donater is soon joining. This is a feat we had not dreamed of due to poverty and numerous calamities that had befallen us, hence your gestures were timely and God sent, this will go a long way to change the family status.
In Mercy your spiritual vision and aspiration will be actualized and to as your effort have shown a brighter light in a previously dark tunnel where the future was lassed (?) with hopelesness.
Moreso your extra effort to send us a pump for the planned irrigation project is highly and cordially appreciated, kindly pass our gratitude to all your associates who made it possible. It has shown a true manifestation of a true human original heart as per God intended, interpersonal co-existence to make this world a better place to live in.
All in all, during your July visit you met my expectant wife Emma. Thank God she has given birth to a bouncing baby boy named "Tim Burnett Ridley Cobindah" in your honour. In time see the day we are seeing Tim Senior. He is now 2 1/2 months.
May the gracious God you serve bless you abundantly and give you long life to see the fruits of your generosities to your fellow Mankind.
Pass our humble appreciations to your family and associates, we will surely make (?) as productive as far as our might may accord. Even tho' the road has some sloppy and thorny ridges.
(Uncle to Mercy)
