Dear Brother Younas,

Thank you for your inspiring and kind words.

We indeed welcome any kind of collaboration to translate the Crosswire
software and to import Christian teaching material of quality into this
software for the benefit of Christians and Not-yet-Christians in your
country and others.

Just to clarify though, our ministry is totally voluntarily, unfunded
and unpaid, nor can it provide any kind of financial support to anyone
or any other ministry.

Yours in Christ

Peter von Kaehne
