Marilyn B., a young woman from Dumaguete, Philippines, whose studies we supported financially, graduated on March 26 and sent us this letter of thanks:

Dear Sisters,
    Have a bless day to all of you!
    I, Marilyn B. together with my whole family expresses how grateful and thankful we are to all of you the Franciscan Sisters of the Poor for the scholarship that you gave me; if not because of it I wouldn’t be able to finish my degree in education. What I achieve now it is because of you who shoulder almost all of my expenses in school. I considered myself very lucky that I got the chance to meet such wonderful people like YOU. I know a million thanks wouldn’t be enough to express how thankful and bless I am right now because of you all. I will never forget your kindness to me and I will make it my inspiration to extend my help in the future so that there will be more deserving students like me who’s dream will be fulfilled. Right now I am preparing for our Teacher License Examination this coming July 27, 2014. I know I can make it with the help of our Lord Jesus, so pray for me please. I will always be grateful and thankful to the SFP for as long as I live.

Marilyn B.
