Dear Len,10-25-06

The purpose of my writing is to recommend Clio Eldred as worthy of support. Clio and I worked together in the Shelton Prison Ministry for two years. Clio is a very sincere, dedicated and hard worker to the goal of saving souls. Every soul is precious in his sight, even the lowest of the low. I guess that is why prison work fits him best. The prisoners love him dearly.

He presently has a successful work at the Federal Prison at SeaTac, teaching both men and women. The last two years he has baptized between 40 and 50 prisoners at this location.

Clio contracted polio early in life and is not capable of working to earn sufficient funds to support what he does for the Lord. Clio needs support and any amount would be appreciated. The Shelton church collects his support, but we ourselves are unable to help him, as we are falling short paying for a preacher.

Cordially His,
Elvin L. Deffenbaugh
