I updated the bulletin #6 of “Walking Together” in our website.
I placed the English manuscripts of three letters among the articles of the bulletin #6.
These three letters were written by Sr. Leticia Negishi’s pupil in Sierra Leone, and dedicated to the first memorial anniversary of Sr. Leticia Negishi.
The strength of their gratitude to Sr. Leticia Negishi is touched me deeply.
On the occation of the first memorial anniversary of Sr. Leticia Negishi
11th November 2014.
On behalf of the old girls of the Nobel institution, Maria Ines Vocation Institute Lunsar Sierra Leone I (Sylvia) wants to sympathize with the lost of our dearest friend, Religious Sister and Principal of this noble institution. We miss her, we love her but God loves her the most. May her soul rest in peace Amen.
Sr. Leticia has done very great in the lives of students and Sierra Leone as a whole may God rewards her abundantly. During her stay in Lunsar Sierra Leone, by the help of many supporters in Japan, she has inspired many students to study by giving scholarships and other help that we will never forget in life.
Today, many of us have benefit greatly through her tremendous help. We now say thanks be to God as most of us are working and others are still studying at different Universities and prove it well.
We missed her, we love her but God loves her the most. We say sorry to the family, friends, relatives and others who help Sister Negishi. I pray that God will receive her in His holy Kingdom as we will meet her one day. Lie down Sr. Leticia and have your resting peace.
On the other hand, I want to let you know how our country Sierra Leone has faced another war. What I mean by war is that, we have a very dangerous disease called EBOLA, which has claimed the lives of many people in the country. It is a disease got through body contact. It can kill in a very short time.
But I Thank God I am still alive thought I lost some relatives and friend. We are asking for your supportive prayers to our country, so that this disease will finish in a very short time in this our beloved country Sierra Leone.
Once more I say sorry to the Negeshi family in Japan. I pray that our Sr. is now in the hands of God Alimght.
Rest in peace Sister till we meet again.
My beautiful memories of Sr. Leticia Negishi
I remember Sister Negishi when I was coming for prayers on Sunday she always advice about my school.
And I also remember her when she was taking me classes on Sunday after service. Teaching me the word of God
I also remember her when I was helping her, carrying her bags from her office to her motor cycle.
She always told me to be a good girl and I listen to her advice in Jesus name. I will always remember her in my prayers, I miss her so much especially her good smile.
May her soul rest in perfect peace Amen.
I remember sister Negisi when I was preparing her Soya juice
And I also remember her when she was telling me about her home and her family and she was the only girl child in her family and her father was a formal principal and she too ask me about my own family and both of where laughing together .
I also remember her the time she told me about the scholarship I was very much happy.
She is a very nice sister and I will never forget her
Sr. Leticia Negishi, I owe my Life to you!
First of all I want to introduce how I come in contact with Sr. Leticia Negeshi. I (Sylvia) was a former student of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Secondary Secondary School Lunsar a school mainly for girls. After my sixth class in the secondary school I sat my West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). I sat to this national exam but unfortunately, my l result was not too good. I decided to repeat the class but my elder brother who was paying my fees refused to pay this time because I failed.
One day I was walking on the street, where I met a teacher of the Maria Ines Vocational Centre Lunsar a centre where Sr. Leticia was headed and advised me to go to this institution. The next day, I met Sr. Negishi and explained everything to her that I wanted to attended the institution but I have no one to pay my fees. She asked if I have all my secondary school certificates and results I said yes. The next day I came with all this documents and sat to an entrance exams (Interview) of which I was the best girl in that exams.
I started attending the institute and since then Sr.Negishi was paying my school fees and all other school charges. I was in the Institution and am greatly impressing her on my school performance. I was in the institution for three year of all these three years I was the most brilliant girl in the institution. Sr. Negishi grew to have more interest on me. She always called me in her office to advice me on good things. I took her advice and today I can be proud of her relentless help towards me.
After my final year in the Maria Ines Vocational Institute, I got the best result and she sent me to study at the Northern Polytechnic Makeni College- Makeni Campus. I was there for two year where I gain a Diploma certificate in Business Administration. On my completion, I got a job at St. John of God Catholic Hospital Mabesseneh Lunsar, Sierra Leone but with other family difficulties am facing in the work place, after finishing contract with them, I decided to stop work with them and find another job. With the great help of God, I was lucky to get another job better than the one before.
Sr. Negishi went back to Japan with the hope of coming back to Sierra Leone Lunsar in particular. It was very pathetic for me when I heard that our beloved sister, Sr. Negishi has passed away. I could not imagine how I felt that day. I love her so much and like to visit her almost every day in the office where I and she discussed lot of issues.
Sr. Negishi has greatly done something in my life and the lives of others. We missed her, we love her but God loves her the most. We say sorry to the family, friends, relatives and others. We pray that God will receive her in His holy Kingdom as we will meet her one day. Lie down Sr. Leticia and have your resting peace.
May her soul and the souls of the faithfulls rest in perfect peace amen.
