    I was up in the Delta last month for the memorial of the Marines who died in the C130 crash last year. I was staying in Indianola and came up to visit some friends in Sunflower. I noticed your office and I was interested in your program, but sadly you were closed. I looked up your project on the internet. I have been to 150 countries thru the world and do a lot of charity work for overseas school. But I was so impressed by your organization and what it accomplishes!! Great job!!! Next time I am in the Delta, I will stop by and say hi. I think that you are doing a fabulous job!! Thank you, Tim
