ERASTO is so awesome, Ray. May it touch the hearts of so many who resist peace. I think the tone, almost nonchalant understated description of details without emotional words. Thank you so much for all the world! Peace, etc., Bruce Combs

Description

To: Awa Adey Haweeya
Somali Support Centre (USSC)
C/o UNICEF Somalia Support Centre.
P.O. Box 44145-00100
Nairobi, Kenya.


Dear Father, I, your son Erasto, asks for your blessings.

I am sorry for not writing in so long time. I was very busy my father, but now I am safe.

The travel was long and the sacrifices hard and painful.
But now, after 3 years of danger I am here. A place called Malta.

I can send you now money my family.
Mama I miss you, wife I promise I will send for you one day soon
My child I will pray for you always, look at my picture every day so you can recognise me.

I have sent you 50 Euro from my job building stone walls. I will send more next month.
As an illegal refugee I am only paid half the money of the white peoples.
But they are good. They call me �Toad� because I am big, strong and quiet.

They make fun a lot with me and I smile a little.

Please tell Auntie that Korfa and his wife Nadifa have not made it and will not be returning home.

Tell her I have prayed over their souls. I have cried for her also.

Mama I miss you so much.
Bless me Father.
