Seminary “This is the message we heard from Jesus and declare to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him at all.” (I John 1:5)

Dear beloved friends, 

I hope this letter finds you and yours well and full of joy in the Lord and that the receding of the waters in Houston brought the dawning of a new season.
I'm extremely grateful for my brothers and sisters in Christ.
 As of Fall 2017, both of my daughters are full-time college students, leaving me with an opportunity to attend seminary.
I'm a full-time student at the Biola University Talbot School of Theology, where I am pursuing a Certificate in Biblical Studies, a one year program, with the option to continue with a Master of Arts in Bible Exposition, a longer program, depending on God’s leading and financials.
Please pray for me, specifically for God’s provision, as I embark on a new journey. Prayer is the most essential thing and I am on my knees (and sometimes my face) daily.
Would you prayerfully consider joyfully supporting me during my time in seminary, as I am currently a full-time student?  I have paid two of the semester installments and the other due in a few weeks and then there is next  semester. Financially, it is a huge stretch of faith and our God is faithful. Here I am, about to go to hermeneutics in a few minutes.
I'm praying that the funds for my seminary classes, and all of the associated fees, including renting a room near campus, will continue to come in so that I can complete the program and have a bed to sleep in.
I will post updates and progress reports regarding finances,  my seminary experiences, and studie.
I’m extremely grateful for each of you for your friendship, prayers, love, and support.  

Blessings and love to you and yours,

Elliott Young
