Angel is a Business major at Messiah College. She is originally from Eswatini (formerly Swaziland) and is in the US to further her education. Her parents have not been able to provide the financial support that they expected due to financial issues at home. She needs about $5000 just to be able to pay off her current bill and register for spring semester classes. Additional money would help to pay off the beginning of the school year expenses like her laptop, phone, etc. as well as set her up to be able to pay her spring tuition.
While we hope that her family's financial position will improve, we hope to bless her parents by enabling her to take care of these expenses without feeling like a burden on them or being unable to continue her education at Messiah.
As her host parents, we have loved having Angel living in our home. She works multiple jobs on campus to make some money and has gotten involved with international and diversity groups on campus as well as making a wonderful group of friends. Her grades are good and she shows great promise as a student, we hope that she will be able to continue her studies for her full time at Messiah, rather than being forced to leave the US after only one semester.
