Dear daughter Helen

Happy birthday.  20 years ago you came to be a part of my and your mother's lives.  You brought much joy, surprises and hope.
Your life has been a blessing to us.  You grew, developed your personality and continue to grow to be that person that God has purposed since before your birth.
Your godly character, your faith and convictions are precious and I hope they can be developed in their plenitude from here on out, now being influenced by professors and new friends here on the SPU campus, where God allowed you to come and study.
Here at SPU you begin a new chapter in your life, now focusing on your professional formation.
Always look to develop your Christian life and character, being very near to our Lord Jesus, daily.  Look for good Christian friendships, with those who are really committed to the Lord.  May God give you wisdom in this and in your studies.  I am and will be praying for you, and will do whatever is possible for you to be able to study and succeed in all you do.
Remember that your dedication and sacrifice now will bring benefits for the rest of your life.  Therefore, together let's make this effort!  And when you finish your academic college formation, may we rejoice and praise the Lord for all that He will certainly provide, especially in the spiritual, academic and financial areas of your life.

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us"  Ephesians 3:20

Remember that we'll be praying for you, and will be with you in every moment.  Not only us, but above all, God will be with you in whatever moment of your life, especially during your moments of difficulty.
Psalm 46 and Psalm 121.  Proverbs 3:1-8

May you feel God's blessings daily, which are made new every morning.  May He give you physical health for all your daily activities.

God bless you richly.

With love.

your dad,
