Never say impossible

Three weeks ago I thought that my PhD hopes via UKZN were dead. The last Higher Degrees Committee meeting had come and gone and my proposal was not yet complete. Prof Draper offered me a ray of hope by suggesting bringing Dr Billy Meyer on board as a co-supervisor, but I wasn't sure if there was time to make it work. A couple of days later I came to the end of another project and decided to email Prof Draper and say let's give it a try. And so Billy and I worked together and in less than two weeks the proposal was good enough in his eyes. Today Jonathan (Draper) also okayed it and I have a signed contract with my supervisors and a promise that they will submit my proposal as early as possible next year.
Thank you Billy! And Jonathan. And of course, Jesus, through whom all things are possible. God is good.

Thanks for all your encouragement.
