Prof. Dr. Harald Suermann, Director, Missionswissenschaftliches Institut Missio, Institute of Missiology Missio
Dear DR. SUERMANN: May I extend sincerest gratitude to the Institute of Missiology Missio for the scholarship grant I received in 1985 to 1988 for my studies at the Angelicum University in Rome. The grant helped me finish my doctoral studies in theology, after which I returned to my home diocese (Dumaguete) as Rector of the local Seminary, Vicar general, then Diocesan Administrator. I became Auxiliary Bishop of the neighboring Archdiocese of Cebu and served there for almost 12 years before this appointment to Dumaguete. In all of these, I owe a debt of gratitude to the Institute. Thank you, too, for the kind wishes for this new task. God bless you all! Sincerely in the LORD, +Julito B. Cortes
