As part of the LuvHaiti initiative at Deep Water Church, we have been working with our partner church of Petion Ville Wesleyan in Port-au-Prince to fund a scholarship program for post-secondary students. For the past three years, Weline has been one such student. She is entering her third year and final year of nursing studies which will be covered by funding from ReachOut. Weline sent the following letter of thanks to Deep Water: I greet you in the precious name of Jesus while hoping that you and your family members are doing well. I want to thank God first then you and Pastor Jeannot for your support. To be sincere, I want you to know how much I am grateful to you because it is not easy to find people like you in this world with such a loving heart and ready to help others. Therefore, I want to express my gratitude because your support means a lot to me and that has put joy in my heart.
During my first year of nursing I learned to do a lot of things like: giving immunization shots, doing blood tests, checking the heart beating, giving medicine to the patients or sick people, and I also spent a few months as an intern in a hospital.
During my second year, I was to move to a different school to comply with the Haitian government policies. I felt more comfortable in that second school. I did well in all the classes and learned many other things like giving injections; preparing medicine or solution, checking the vital signs of the body. I also spent many months in a hospital for internship reasons in these services: ophthalmology, odontology, laboratory, general care; I learned many things through practice or experiment.
As of this October, I am going to start with my third year and I do thank you for the continuation of your assistance. During my first year, I received about $500 and during the second year I received $800 and I think I will need almost that same amount or more for the third year as each year the school becomes more expensive.
To finish, I want to count on you as I hope that you will find and read this letter. Please receive my warmest and best affection.
This year, along with Weline, two other students have received a scholarship to help them pursue their educational goals.
