Thank you for your kind letter for support and encouragement. Your recognition of our challenges and opportunities means a lot to me and this team.

Your willingness to embrace the city and this administration, and uplift us in prayer is also greatly appreciated. We are, indeed, in trying times that become manageable with spiritual intervention.

Please feel free to contact my office if we can ever be of assistance, and thank you again for your unwavering support and prayers.
