Would you allow me to have the pictures to use for our Mission Committee prayer calendar? It consists of about 12 people who receive an e-mail from me weekly with scripture references and description of the prayer focus for the week.

Our pastor, Rev. Strickhausen, spoke a little about our Ecuador mission this past Sunday. He was very touched by the perfect music you chose and he incorported the words of ” With My Own Two Hands” into his sermon. Your work is blessing so many, Kate. Just wanted to share that with you. May God continue to bless you and those who view your work.

Hi Kate, I am long….long….long time friends of ginny, orfay and celeste (since she was first in USA) They are such wonderful people…always giving rarely taking except for others.
I LOVED your contribution. Ginny was so thrilled that you were doing this. I’ve sent the site to anyone I know who might be interested.
Thank you so much for what you have done. I cried which isn’t easy for a jaded old social worker who is best friends with ginny.
I love that family. Thanks again. toni
