This is exactly what I hoped to read in this series of essays. Probably, even if this is fiction, it is close to actual accounts. I enjoyed the way the composition worked. Thank you.

I really liked this! You used the letters home approach very effectively. Your title is a grabber!

As has been said an excellent title and I like the way that the ministry develops as time goes by. But I thought the overall effect was a bit corny. Such activities might possibly have taken place a hundred years ago but I thought they were unrealistic for a setting of 2005.
This was good! I like the personal correspondence style, and it had just the right touch of wit and humor, too. Well done.

A clever approach! A very economical way to tell the whole story, and in an authentic voice.

The spelling of the people was inconsistent: are they "Xanileans" or "Xaileans"?

Good job creating suspense and resolution here.

Though it may not be realistic, it was an entertaining read and a good reminder that God leads our lives and paves the way before us. Loved the title!!
