Before I get to the point of my writing today, I must follow-up on my last blog...you know, the one where we asked for $50,000 for our unsponsored students to finish the school year strong? God never ceases to amaze me. While we did not fully reach the $50,000 goal, we were able to pay every school bill that was immediately due. So, we count that as a great success! With almost $35,000 donated by so many of you generous people, we are able to finish the year stronger than we were before. We had new donors who joined us, an incredibly generous church who gave, and so many who are already sponsors and supporters, who went above and beyond their monthly donations to faithfully support these efforts. So, thank you to ALL who gave to our Unsponsored Student Fund! We are forever grateful.
And, now for UNIVERSITY 101!
