There is also good news from our University Scholarship Program. We are currently sponsoring a group of twelve University students, and of these, four are Sisters of the Companions of Jesus. Two
Sisters are studying Agronomy and two are in Education Sciences. In past years, three Sisters have graduated from the University Scholarship Program. Of those, two are working at the Village of
Jesus; one as the head nurse and one as a nursing assistant. The other Sister is teaching at Coeur de Marie in Leogane. This is a wonderful example of the collaborative approach between Mission Haiti
and the Sisters of the Companions of Jesus. Our mutual missions are supported and the circle is complete, as the Sisters graduate from our University Scholarship Program and then contribute more
effectively to the Companions of Jesus and in turn, to the people of Haiti. Of our current group of students other than the Sisters, three are in medical school, two are in law school, two are in
business school and one is in agronomy.
At Thanksgiving, Sr. Alta Emile, the acting Co-General Responsible of The Sisters of the Companions of Jesus, expressed her gratitude to all of Mission Haiti’s donors, through an author and in her
"Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings." -- William Arthur Ward.
“Indeed, gratitude is the key to a life of meaning and happiness. On this day, I come to express my gratitude to God, because each of you is a blessing to the world, particularly for our brothers
and sisters who are pushed to the margins of our society.” -- Sister Alta Emile, CDJ
As you reflect on 2019 and prayerfully consider your year-end giving, we hope you will include Mission Haiti in your plans, so that together we can bring hope back to Haiti. Please give
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
