Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mr.frankkwabena0022@yahoo.com.hk ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Frank.

I have already visited Kazakhstan and Ukraine. I would like to visit Turkey.
Some of the other countries in that part of the world may not like me very much. So, being careful is smart. I have considered teaching in some of the African countries or in the countries I have mentioned. I don't know where it will be, but I am going. Craig

No, I have not read any, because until now, I had little reason to do it. But now I have a very important reason. I will write that name of the books in my resources notebook. I will then go online to see where they can be found. I am going to make as many preparations as I can now. Never is it good to wait. Craig
