It has been a dream of mine to attend a Christian University for years. In the summer of my 10th grade year I sensed God calling me into life time ministry. At the time I wasn’t sure what part of the ministry, but I just knew I had to say yes. Part of saying yes is getting an education in a place where I can learn more about how to serve God and his people. As many of you know, one of my milestones is that on my second day of senior year I got accepted to attend The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton!
One of the most amazing things that has happened this past year during my senior year at Leander High School is that I’ve been awarded the UMHB Christian Leadership Scholarship, the UMHB Music scholarship, The UMHB Crusader scholarship, the Live Like Ryan Would Scholarship, and the Leander Band Boosters scholarship, what a blessing each one of these have been.
Having said that I am still about $6800 short of my first semester tuition. I’ve tried everything offered to me, and everything I know, but nothing has worked. My parents have been hit incredibly hard this year financially because of my little brother’s medical issues, he had to miss an entire year of school due to multiple surgeries, doctor and specialist visits. At this point he is physically better, but he could use some more prayers. And my dad had multiple episodes of back issues that made him miss work for a couple of weeks to the point we are a single income family. It’s just been very hard, and I don’t want to be an additional burden to this situation.
I have to say that this has been a crazy but awesome summer. I graduated from Leander High School on June third, and then the next day I went to go serve as a Media Summer Missionary at Highland Lakes Camp and Conference Center.
I believe it is God’s will for me to attend UMHB, and I believe he will provide. If you feel led to give anything that would be so helpful, but if you can’t I ask you would pray for me. Just want to thank you in advance for being people that have poured into or invested in my life, I love all of you so much.
