Might not students in the Divinity Colleges enter into this valuable experience and service immediately on a people to people basis in live of much of their classroom work? With gratitude for all the leadership which you are providing for our nation and the world. Sincerely yours, [Closing Signature: Lauretta J. Evans (Mrs. Egra)] No reply expected
