First of all, I want to thank all of you who made the year 2018 possible for me. I have completed my one-year pastoral leadership course at Hillsong College and decided to take a leap of faith to stay for another year. And for this reason, I'm raising funds for my tuition and fees and I'm asking you for your support.

This year has been surreal. It was rocky yet grace-filled. I have been living constantly at the edge of falling apart, having no money to pay rent, and living off Cole's gift cards for food. But I was never in lack. There was always more than enough with one miracle after another.

This year was covered with tears of sorrow and tears of joy. It's really put my faith to test. I caught myself doubting God on countless occasions, asking God "why?" He never answered me nor rebuked me. Instead, again and again, He proved Himself faithful even when I was faithless.

It was a year of constant challenges and consecutive wins. I know I was called to be the love of God to the people in this world but this year, I was challenged to the core. I thought I was generous and kind but then I learned that it's easy for me to love, to be kind, and to be generous in my comfort zone. But this year, God taught me how I could love regardless of my circumstances. Because He first loved me, out of the overflow, I can love others. And love conquers all.

It was also a year of losing everything I had but gaining all things money cannot buy. I gave up a high paid job, a career I worked so hard for, financial security, comfort, space, and freedom for an unknown future that God's called me to. I lived a year with the bare minimum, having no personal space, and serving intensive hours. I had constant mental meltdowns at the beginning because it was a lot harder than I thought and way more than I was willing to sacrifice. But the rewards are greater. The joy I had was unspeakable when I saw countless people being miraculously healed, hearts being transformed, family reconciled, the broken people found hope, and the lost found a place they could call home. It has been the most fulfilling year yet.

I know that this year was just the beginning. I am believing God for much more. As some may know that my initial plan was to do one year of Hillsong College in Australia but I've decided to go for another year and I need your help to stay.

I am raising funds for my second year's tuition fee( 1st and 2nd semesters $6000 ) + VISA and health insurance($1000).




I thank you for believing in me and believing in who God called me to be. Your generosity gives me the freedom to pursue Jesus, to serve others, and to use my skills and work experiences to support non-profits and Christian organizations for a cause. No matter what the amount you give, it makes a difference in my life. I am so grateful that I get to do this and it would not be possible without all of you.

Please keep me in your prayers. This amount I am raising is only for my tuition and fees. I am believing that God will supply my daily needs with more than enough for me to support others and I'm believing the same for you too!

"And God is able to make all grace abound towards you, that you, always, having all sufficiency, may have an abundance for every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:8



Love Always,
Laura
