“Hi Jane, Sorry to hear about you being bed ridden. It is so unfortunate that this had to happen to you when you have such a great task to achieve. I am trying to be a VM and would have loved to try to help where I can as Bahati and where I live in Teachers is not such a big deal. Anyway what we need to do, for those of us that you are our VM need to try and chip in to help you. I would have started immediately but unfortunately I also have a burden on my shoulder as my nephew’s house was burnt down over the weekend and we have to try and help him get on his feet. In fact when i opened your your link I wanted to ask you what I could do to try and borrow some money for him to help him try and get a temporary house put up. But when i have found you in the situation you are in I feel so sorry about it. So I will wait and get in touch at a latter date. I want to wish you the best and quick recovery for your injury. God is with you and will help you overcome your physical problem. I want to encourage you to keep praying so that He may be quick and giving you a quick recovery. God bless.”
