"Just the words 'thank you' alone seem less than what it is worth but from the bottom of my heart I thank you for the opportunity you have given me, for without it I wouldn’t feel the joy, excitement, and hope of being a better person and having a future and a career. The misery I used to feel seems to have faded, for nothing beats the joy I have in my heart every day.

"This opportunity will qualify me to become part of the construction industry as it is my dream to construct secure buildings that people can live in. I one day wish to have my own construction company and create employment to many people and grow the construction industry. I have a desire in my heart that, with the skills and education I am acquiring now, I can be a part of building many LDS chapels and temples of the Lord all throughout South Africa.

"This opportunity has not just given me a chance but has given my 4 year old daughter a chance to have a bright future and a chance of a better life for I am a single mother with a duty to help build and shape her future in teaching her the Gospel and providing her with the education she needs.

"May you never grow tired and may the love you have for us grow stronger, for I know that the Lord will bless you for he has blessed me by giving me you as my angels to lift me up when I was down. I promise to help others just as you have done for me.

"I love you all very much."
