Unfortunately, as many of you know the UK voted for Brexit which for me means that I would no longer afford to study in Scotland mainly because I no longer have acces to a loan system in the UK to come here and study, The choice is either to pay full international fees without a loan scheme or to leave the university. I would have not come to UK if I had been asked to pay full international fees. It is already complicated for us as we European Students don’t get a maintenance loan and depend largely on our own income or family. It breaks my heart when I hear how many sacrifices my relatives were already making during my previous studies, so asking them to pay for my expenses too is a barrier I would not ever cross. If I don't have at least 900 pounds before the Fall 2016 semester I would have to give up my plans to study my undergraduate course in the UK while working part-time. It had been my dream to study Philosophy and Science in the UK, “a dream few know how much I fought for”. I love every aspect of my degree … without the UK being part of Europe my enrolment would not have been possible.
We all need to love God with all of our hearts, souls, minds, and strength (Matt. 22:37)! As many of you know, I am trying to achieve this by working toward an ultimate goal of a BTh in Philosophy&Divinity. Philosophy&Theology can help with understanding the world, as well as answering thorny questions. I desire both to work in the academy and in the local church. In academics, I can influence both believers and unbelievers; in short, I can be a professor on mission. In the local church, I can work as an assistant pastor or teacher. I have been admitted to the University of Aberdeen (UK) and this is where I study. This school would open more doors for me to live the life of a "missional professor," whether within secular or sacred schools, either via distance learning or in the UK.
In order to move to Uni this year, I need at least 1000£, and I would need it before the Fall 2016 semester! Would you consider partnering with me to achieve my mission of reaching academics and equipping believers in this way? You can do this by simply praying for me, or you can give financially. I believe that if I have the prayers of my fellow believers, God will be honored and his will shall be done. If there were to be as many as 40 donors at just $25 each, the first phase of this goal will be accomplished. God bless you for reading!
