Help Me Pay My College Expenses

I am a student from India and I recently got admitted in the Moody Theological Seminary for the course Master in Divinity with Pastoral Studies Emphasis. I am looking forward to joining the college in August 2019 for the Fall Semester.

I believe that my call is to work for the church ministry. I have been burdened with the urge to serve and to reach out to the people with the only gospel of the love of God. Amidst the ocean of doctrines, my vision is to take a stand on that one true doctrine that Jesus intended to be spread across the nations. My hope is that there will come a day when, putting down the disputes of doctrines, all the children of God hold hands together, irrespective of the denominations, united by the love of Christ, as one big Church, serve God and people in love and humility. After waiting in prayer I'm convinced that this seminary is my first step. Though I'm uncertain of what is to come next, I believe that God will guide me according to His plan, in His time.

I need to submit the application for the visa by the first week of June 2019 and I am supposed to pay my tuition and housing fees by the month of July 2019. For my visa application, I need to prove that I'll be able to cover my college expenses for the year. I have applied for a scholarship which would grant a maximum of $3500 for a year. The rest of the funds would need to be arranged before the end of May for the application of the visa.

I would be really grateful for your helping hand in raising these funds. It would mean a lot to me! :)

Estimated expenses for the academic year:
1. Tuition: $7560
2. Insurance fee: $2091
3. Technology and miscellaneous fee: $240
4. Books (plus a required software): $1500
5. Housing: $8000
6. Meals: $3260
Total: $22651

My sincere thanks to you once again. God bless you!
