This beautiful note from Sr. Marilyn Lacey of Mercy Beyond inspiring for an artist to receive.

Dear Janet,

I'm just now back from St Bakhita School in Narus, SSudan. I gave your painting to the St B Secondary School where Mercy Beyond Borders now has 23 young women on full scholarship. But before I could present it to the Principal, I unpacked it and temporarily set it down on the doorstep of my tukul (round hut). A Dinka woman named Martha walked by, saw it there, and immediately bowed to it and began to pray aloud in her language with the utmost reverence. I snapped her photo (attached here), but it doesn't capture the beauty and grace of the moment!

Thanks again for sharing your talent with the people of SSudan.
