Tears of Gratitude

As mentioned in the previous post, Helping India Together decided to support three young women seeking to attend nursing school. This letter came from the mother of one of the young women.

Dear Brothers and Sisters of the New Life team,

I am N--- mother of A---. I am working as a A.N.M. nurse at the [hospital]. My husband woks as a labourer. The sum of our salaries are just enough to sustain us, but we want to give the best to our children. So we sought admission to B.Sc. Nursing for our daughter (a step above G.N.M.Nursing) not knowing how we will sustain the high fee structure (of Rs.90,000 for 1st year & Rs.78,000 each for the next 2 years) but depending upon the Lord for help. On 16th of this month I was sitting in the office of my daughter's college confused and contemplating what to do about the fees. It was then that [the hospital administrator] called and gave the good news about your support. For a moment I was shocked and then I couldn't stop the tears of gratitude flowing in front of so many people. Until then I never knew how my needs will be met. Once again I would like to thank every one at the New Life team from the bottom of my heart. God bless you all.
