Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly. The Vitamins are compositions out of texts, which we are friendly allowed by the authors to present on our webpage.

Fifteen months later, Legson arrived in Kampala, Uganda, where he came across a directory of American colleges.
