I desire and trust that God’s grace and mercy will be with each of you.
Seven months into this world crisis of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is a comfort to know that we can still move forward. With certainty in my heart I can say that up to this point the Lord has helped us and comforted us so that we can help, comfort, and console others.
In the UBL the work has intensified. Through the Student Ministry we continue to accompany many of our students who have suffered losses in various ways during this time. In the academic area we have opened several non-degree courses and series of conferences that have had a very good response. We believe that this is because many people need to engage in other things as a way of coping with the emotional burden generated by this pandemic. Thanks to God and the willingness of all UBL staff to respond, we have been able to offer satisfactory alternatives in the midst of the crisis.
As for my family, we thank God that we have been well. We continue in our jobs and tasks quite normally in the midst of the crisis. On Saturday the 17th of this month we had the opportunity to share our first extended family breakfast since this crisis and the quarantine began (except for my husband because he had to study all day). It was a time of much joy and gratitude, especially to enjoy my grandson.
On a personal level, I want to share that I continue to advance in the two Diploma programs I am taking. One ends in November and the other in December. I am also very happy because I was accepted into a Master’s program at the National University on the topic of “Human Rights and Peace Education.” This master’s program begins in February. I thank God for this opportunity since it will allow me to offer better academic accompaniment to the students and develop other areas of work, particularly with children.
Finally, I thank each of you for accompanying me with your prayers and gifts during this time. Each of you is also present in my prayers and I pray to God for your well-being.
