Solomon's Letter dated 7/04/09

This letter is in response to my questions to him. I need to know the exact graduation day so I can make my flight arrangements. I asked if there was someplace he wanted to visit while I am there with him. Mr. Brannigan goes to our church, Open Door Baptist Church in Raleigh. He and his family served as missionaries in Ethiopia for 9 years and he now travels back to teach at the Seminary that meets at the International church in Addis Ababa.

Hello My Sweet Mom,

How are you today? I am doing very well. Mom I asked our college director but still they are not set the exact day of our graduation. I don’t know what to do. I told them why I need the exact day but they don’t tell me the exact day. If you want to communicate with my college director here is they email address: - and the web site

Mom I met with Mr. Tom Brannigan. He is really a good person. He invited me to his home and we talk about many things. He asked me my future plan and about my past life. He loves your work very much. Finally he prayed for me, for God to make me a way to come to there and to bless you all for me.

Mom, the pharmacy college I know is very far from Misganaw’s family. But I hope there is also another pharmacy college near to Misganaw’s family house.

Mom, I don’t know where Ethiopian International Church is found.

Mom, I don’t visit any place before so I don’t know what to say mom. I only want to sit with you and look your beautiful face and listen your beautiful words. Until now this is my only wishes. You are my happiness and everything for me. So, if you are with me I have everything.

Mom, I don’t know what to say for everything you are doing for me. How an awesome thing to have you and the rest of my family. I am a lucky person because of God give me you for me. I love you very much you all. Please know that always thinks and praying about you my beloved, sweet and precious mom. You bring me from dead to a good life and give me a future hope. I am a full man because of you. I love you very very, very much. You are my words when I speak and my way when I go to anywhere. I learn form you many good things about God, love and life. Thank you very much for everything.

“(000000000000) Hugs (xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx) Kisses” with my love.

God Bless You My Sweet Mom!!!!

From Your Son Solomon Mestas,

To my dear Mom. Eileen Mestas.

I pray that reading this blog is blessing you as you have an opportunity to get to know the heart cry of an orphan boy. He needs and wants a family. He needs to know that there is someone in the world that GOD and the LORD JESUS has given HIM to be his family and to help him get established while on this earth. GOD IS BIG ENOUGH TO HELP YOU CARE FOR AN ORPHAN... ARE YOU IN LOVE WITH HIM ENOUGH TO TRUST HIM AND STEP OUT IN FAITH???

Feel free to contact me if you would like to pray about it or have any questions?? If God can use Me & JERRY, the messed up Mestas' you have no excuses!!!!
