      Congratulations! I know that you've worked for many years with some of
      these villages. It's exciting to see them coming together in very much
      the way you envisioned. I think it's hardest to get this core together,
      and then it will grow naturally.

      Will this be primarily in German? I will try to see who in Lithuania
      might be interested, in time.

      I share your letter at Living By Truth and also Learning From Each Other,
      where others know you from Minciu Sodas.
