Wonderful news from Jocelyn Macharia
(This is an excerpt from a letter sent to Poppy Buchanan from Jocelyn Macharia, who entered graduate school in Kenya on May 25, 2009, with funding assistance from The Nurses Apron Partnership and from Burning Bush, Inc.)
I had a very busy time writing my dissertation, and God is good finally it is over. I handed it over, and it was marked. The results are out, and we graduating on 5th October, 2012. The University of Wales released our results last Tuesday, 19th September. There were nine students who did not make it, so they will re-submit, their dissertation next year. University of Wales is very strict, so I really feel that the Almighty God has done it for me. Iam humbled by His wonderful woks. May His name be praised!!. We therefore, have very little time to prepare for graduation ceremony.
I thank God for the strength and good health He gave me to write it. It was not an easy exercise, because sometimes I would miss meals. Iam very busy now working in towards community transformation, and more so on reduction of HIV and AIDS.
How are all members of TNAP doing? I do trust God that we shall all meet in person so that I thank them all not just writing but directly. God will create a way. Is it possible for me to be a member of TNAP? I wouldn’t mind being one of you so that I could touch other nurse’s life anywhere in the world. Pass my heartfelt gratitude to all members of TNAP, and tell them, I have no words to explain my feelings but God only can. I wait to hear from you, soon.
May God bless you with good health and long life.
Many, many congratulations to you from TNAP—you are already one of us just by being a registered nurse. We are so proud of you and are delighted to see you in your graduation robe.
