    To Mary Nickel. See Isaiah 4 verse 1 And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man,saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach. Read chapter 3 to better understand this verse.

    from that event there is a lesson of tithe. Ten were heal right? one came back to say THANK u.
