This is a letter we received from Ms Indira Spain, teacher at St. Hilda’s as well as mother of one of our high school scholarship students, Anique Hernandez. Anique is currently in Grade 10 at St. Ignatius High School in San Ignacio. She is a very good student and is also involved in extracurricular activities at her school. Her mom wrote this letter in June.
Greetings from Belize. As I sit to write I can’t help but feel overwhelmed at the idea of connecting with some of the very best people I know, whom I’ve never met but whom have given to me one of the greatest gifts of my life. Your generosity surpasses that of anything I have ever seen. I remember being a smart student, achieving a whole lot in primary but struggling through high school because of financial reasons. Anique is blessed to have an entire congregation behind her and for that I wish to extend a sincere thank you to every member of your church who have contributed to my daughter’s success. Whether they have contributed financially or with a word of prayer we are grateful to all of you for keeping us in the warmth of your Jesus-filled hearts.Find attached Anique’s second form report card. She has done well but I believe she can do much better. The last lap of second form was a little challenging for her as the teachers tried to cover material that will be needed for third form. Her grades fell a little and for that she sends apologies. I am very proud of her despite the little drop and I’m sure that you guys will be as proud.Thank you again for everything you do for my child and I.
