What an absolute joy and blessing to receive your gift of love of $2,464.50 which we have applied to the direct support of your Missionary Carl Hansen and his family in southern China. This is one of the greatest gifts that your congregation could have sent. I hope you will personally stand up and thank every member of the congregation for this gift, because the Hanson family has been so short of this support. We are happy that you will also pray for Molly Christensen as she has been blessed to be fully supported.  I thank God for your outreach committee.  I am looking forward to coming down and speaking at your congregation on Palm Sunday weekend, April 8 & 9.
