Hallo mama Nubra. long time,  how are you doing? Thanks for sharing my regards with the Yali Fellows, it was good and encouraging  to hear from them, this should be the beginning of future partnership and networking. i do hope they have enjoyed being addressed to by President Obama. we thank God we are now through with our studies at MMU. may you continue to pray with us as we trust God’s guidance and direction on where and what He wants us to be doing.

God bless.

hongera  sana (congratulations!). we are proud of the yali fellows, we wish them well,  behind them there are  thousands  of young African leaders anticipating, to see a changed Africa.

networking is paramount for success. The icon of Africa (Mandela) once said “there is no easy road to freedom, and one of us acting alone can never achieve success”. the future of Africa lies in the hands of young African Leaders. God bless.

hallo Mama Nubra. how is everything over there? of late, we have been so busy with the class work, especially this being our final  months to finish our course at MMU.

I  have read the Honorina report, it was good to hear that, the boys at least  are doing something instead of just idling around, this is really encouraging. i am also still wondering how far did the boys go with the plans of securing the loan for starting up the  shoes and chakula business.

i will talk to sister Rose one of this days and see, if there is possibility of the ministers to have a chance to talk to and encourage the boys.  but with Mandela,  i don’t  know how to help, he is always drunk.  we are very busy at mmu.

here it is raining heavily.

looking forward to hear from you.
God bless. hasante sana.

To: nubra floyd

jambo mama, how are you doing?

it was good to hear from you a bout how our boys are proceeding with small business plans.

i had visited sister Rose Mambo at New Safari hotel, two weeks ago  and she shared with me,about  the progress. it’s  encouraging  and i do hope with such determination and hard work, success is certain.

God bless. wsh you all the best.

looking forward to hear from you. Thanks.
