Appreciation Day of The Rock Church of Gainesville Florida
Thank you very much family for the Books, Computers with Monitors, storage shelf, Ocean Freight Container plus moving costs and much more that Education Opportunities for Nigeria Inc. (EON) had received from The Rock Church of Gainesville Florida. During my visit to Nigeria, I visited just one of the future Recipient institutions of your good will. I expressed your kindness and that of Pastor Susan in The New Creation Schools. The student body, The Proprietor and The Staffs were very appreciative and delighted by your generosity.
As soon as EON Inc. has the fund, the shipment will be sent to the nation. On behalf of the directors of EON Inc. I say thank you again. Allow me to end by rephrasing a quote from
Marcel Proust,
“Your team is the charming Gardner that makes the hearts blossom”.
Thank you again.
