I want to tell you a bit of history on JWD. About six years ago there was a poster on this board called Trojan. I find his name and posts, but cannot find the posts that relate to this story. (Posts only seem to go back four years.) I remember he posted that he was in Bethel. He wanted to escape from his situation. His wife was non- supporting. There was quite a discussion on the board that this was a scam, that this person was looking for a handout or something similar.
I was not going to take the chance that this was a not a genuine call for help, so I replied either with pm or on the thread. Every one posting on the thread, including myself, thought that this poster was in Bethel, New York. I told him I would help him, pay his fare across the country, provide him with shelter and even provide him with a job to support himself.
Suddenly, there were no more threads posted by Trojan.
About a year ago, September 6, 2011, I received the following email.:
I sincerely wanted to thank you for your kind words and practical
help.....5 years ago, but it
was worth it. I often thought about your kindness. I appreciate that
there are people like
you "out there"…………..
NEVER forget that you even offered me a job......)
Big hug and Greetings from xxxxxx
Also, he was not from Bethel in New York, he was at a Branch Bethel, situated in one of the central American countries.
He still posts on this board, but under a different name.
Ohio Cowboy, I too, have thought about a similar project and I appreciate your efforts as well as the other posters on this thread.
