Hi Joel and Gareth, Ruth and I love what you're doing and are very happy to pledge our support for your new venture - may the Lord prosper the work! Also, recently in Florida I met Bob and Ellen Hargrave, who were missionaries in the same part of Kenya - I gave them a copy of the MRT and showed them your article. I will pass on your proposal to them. God bless and have a wonder-full Christmas.
