Greetings from the pollen capital of the world. Everything is blooming here at once.

I got a letter from Andrew Burgos, the young man I met at your place in Baguio. He wasn't asking for money (surprise), but did say some things that puzzled me, so I am writing to ask if you know what he is talking about.

I quote: "About my works, I am very sorry to tell you that I separated myself from my co-worker and left the congregation were preaching. I knew this is very bad for you and very embarrassment to my part, but I cannot force myself to work longer for a well known recognized preacher whose always saying lie about me every time I go to find a living. It is good to him who was supported compared tro me who have nothing. He always wanted me to be with him all the time. It is true he is paying my fare but how about my foods. Do I have no right to eat like him? He called me unfaithful preacher so I talked to him and expressed my decision to separate with him. I did nothing wrong because I was become very bad to others because of him. I don't know why there are some preachers like him."

He is working in construction, as well as dishwashing and janitor in a restaurant, and says he has converted several of his friends, but they have no place to worship. Can you give me a clue as to what is going on?

Hope all is well with you and that you are settled in. Regards to Phoebe.

Yours and His,
