After much wrangling with the Orhpanage's courier folks (who were using my old address
and much-outdated phone number) I was handed a new package...
An envelope with a note and a stack of 50, sequentially ordered, $1 bills.
The noteSomeone want to translate?
Carlos comes through: Disclaimer: my swedish is absolutely elementary, but I will try anyways hehe... It looks like a not very difficult phrase so I think I got at least its meaning, but perhaps not the exact words. "God doesn't take back His gifts and His summons."
The cashI scanned in the first & last bills. They are from the Federal Reserve bank of Minneapolis, Minnesota, and they aree very, very new bills.

The Swedish "Gud tar inte tillbaka sina gåvor och sin kallelse." is from Romans 11:29 "for God's gifts and his call are irrevocable."
