Special Insert: TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE. Your generosity allowed replacement of the old run-down passenger van long used by the Sisters in Nigeria. The Sisters searched for the best buy of a used vehicle. They succeeded not just with one vehicle, but with two!
Sr. Clare writes: A dealer in Lagos graciously offered two vehicles for a lower price than the quote for one in Abuja, if we bought both. Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity we conducted a thorough check of the vehicles and got both.
We thank God and all our benefactors who allow themselves to be inspired by God to make this possible for us.
