Dear Brother Hamilton

We extend our greetings and love in the Lord's name to you and your family.

Our prayers on your behalf are that you might be filled with the fullness of Christ to the end and you have every need supplied by our loving Father.

Brother Hamilton, we made this letter to ask your apology in our act of signing the joint Statement dated 1 December 96. We signed that Joint statement because of the convincing statement of Brother Rolando Agpoon & Geronimo Ganela. The fact is we haven't read your letter & they haven't left any copy of them. But when we asked them to furnish us the said letters, we realized that what they explained to us is different from the joint statement and also to your letter. Yes, we learned this through the effort of brother Robert Gamiao who explained and translated to us in our dialect. So, brother Glenn, we hope that you can forgive us. ---- Clemente Guingab, Anastacio Laggui, & Paulo Laggui.

P.S. Attached is our Joint Affidavit revoking our signatures from the Joint Statement dated 1 Dec. 96.
Also attached the Joint Statement dated 1 Dec 96. Furthermore, if you have time please come and investigate each of signaturies because we believe that they were too deceived by the convincing statement of those who solicited the signatures.
