“ASK and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.” verses from the Bible found in the Book of Matthew Chapter 7 verses 7 and 8 that I’ve seen in myself through you and your publication.

Last November 03, 2009 I prayed hard to God to help me find the right person to go to so that my articles will be published. On November 06, I was able to talk to someone who told me about your publication.

I still remember it was on November 10, 2009 when I first came to your office and asked you if can you publish my articles. In return, you asked me if how many articles I want to be published, one or two? You’re too strict then but I didn’t hesitate to tell you not two but ten or as many as I want. You looked at me straight to the eyes and smiled a little.

To you Mr. Editor, I would like to give my heartfelt thanks for opening your publication’s door to me. You let me “Speak Out” what’s inside of me about education – the world that I live in.

Thank you for being so considerate, for publishing all my 10 articles as follows: November 14, 2009 when you published my first article entitled “Teachers Affect Eternity”; November 17, 2009 entitled “Key to Quality Education”; November 28, 2009 entitled “Experience is the Best Teacher”; December 05, 2009 entitled “Alarming Dropout Rates”; December 10, 2009 entitled “A Heartfelt Thanks, Beloved Teachers”; December 19, 2009 entitled “Be Proud You are a Teacher”; January 05, 2010 entitled “Parents’ Role in Education”; January 09, 2010 entitled “Teacher’s Undying Love to His Profession”; January 16, 2010 entitled “Teachers, Keep Your Selves Abreast with New Trends and Innovations”; and January 21, 2010 entitled “A School with a Good School Head”.

You and your publication helped me a lot without you knowing it. Thanks for extending your help to someone like me. God bless us all. More power.
