To Sister Bernadette and to Ate Crystal,
We would like to truly thank you for sharing your time and rich experiences with us. We have truly learned so much from both of you. Your experiences gave all of us values and insight that have made us realize so much about our calling, profession and vocation. Your dedication and commitment to serve God through missions, and just that fact that you are here gracing us with your presence has blessed all of us so much.
We will continuously pray for your health and we pray that God will bless both of you and keep you. May the Lord’s face shine upon you and be gracious to you. May the Lord always give you peace.
And in closing, I would like to share this verse with you and with all of us that will hopefully help us in choosing our vocation and calling. It says in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future”
Thank you and God bless you both.
