Dear Deans, Faculty, and Staff,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
When I left Jamaica to come to the United States of America, I did not really know what to expect. It was a huge step for me; culturally speaking. Soon after I began my theological journey, I realized that I was in the process of building a new family. My mom is right when she says that Christianity is a universal family, and the death and resurrection of Jesus makes it possible. Thank you for welcoming me and making me feel a part of the Divinity School family.
I will be forever grateful to God and my Divinity School family. I am appreciative of the professors for challenging me academically and spiritually. I am also thankful for the helpful staff. I also appreciate you providing me with scholarships throughout my theological education.
I pray God will continue to inspire you all as you carry on your life's mission wherever He may lead you.
Once again, thank you all for investing in me.
Yours in ministry because of Christ,
