David Junior (in green), a Haitian student studying economic and administrative sciences, shares some thoughts with the Great Plains Conference via this brief letter.

David Junior

I am David Junior, originally from Dieulce, communal section of Pointe a Raquette, arrondissement of La Gonâve. I am professing member of the Methodist congregation of Dieulce. Currently, I am a second-year student in economic and administrative sciences at QUYSQUEYA University in Port au Prince.

My dream is to become an economist since during my classical studies, unfortunately, I did not have the chance to cross the barriers of the university to be able to realize this precious dream, because my parents were deprived of necessary financial means to send me to pursue my university studies. I had to spend almost six years trying to find my way to pursue higher education. Thanks to the Great Plains Conference’s scholarship, that allows me to start realizing my dream. This opportunity for higher education will open up a better tomorrow for me.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the churches of the Great Plains Conference, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for the invaluable support, the fact of offering me a full scholarship for my university studies. I assure you that your help will not be in vain. I pray that God in his love may grant you all graces and blessings to continue working in his ministry.

My most fraternal greetings.

Dr. William Hypolite, from La Gonave, Haiti visited the Great Plains to share about his health ministry on the Island of La Gonave where he organizes mobile clinics to serve people in the mountains of La Gonave who do not have access to any clinic or hospital. William is working with Lloyd Hanna, who runs the Medical Loan Closet in Wichita, to get some medical equipment to La Gonave. William will also visit Nebraska Wesleyan University’s department of Nursing and Education. NWU has been sending faculty and students to work with the Methodist schools in La Gonave. William’s travel has been made possible through our Haiti Methodist-Great Plains Conference partnership, which focuses on equipping young people on La Gonave through education and leadership development.
