October 29, 2016 Email from Doneter Akumu to Tim
(note: previously we had Mercy's younger sister's name as Donneta or Donnetta, but she spells it Doneter. Must be some fluidity to how Luo names are spelled phonetically).
Greetings!How is your family doing?
It was a wonderful moment when we hosted the most good and kind hearted person in the world who has made a great positive impact in our family!I miss that day!For the record you were the first ''Mzungu'' to step foot in our home,we were really honored.
I must say thank you for educating Mercy who has shown us how education and perseverance in life is important for a better future.I am trying my best to follow her foot steps.
Thank you for the 1030 dollars you sent to Mercy for my college fees.This is a dream come true!As you already know Mercy wanted to take me to college this year but she could not make it because Brian and Titus are fully depending on her.So I had to wait at home praying day and night that somehow I will get to college someday.You and your colleagues/church mates or friends are God sent.I believe it is a great sacrifice and I promise never to disappoint you.I am now certain that I will join Kenyatta University next year January.
Thank you all and may the God you serve shower you and your friends with his endless blessings.For the lady who promised that she will ensure that I will go through my University Education with or without the success of the fundraising,I say thank you and may God bless her.
Thanks you again and again.
