I’v been pleased with your report, and I feel to bless you The more liberal we are to do good the greater our means will multiply and the blessings of God attend us. If we keep our hearts full of compassion and love and do not fear to speak in praise of our Lord. This is no time to go to sleep, keep wide awake keep and you are all right Amen
