Every time I have found myself being traumatized by the impossibility and magnitude of this dream – there has been a profound moment of encouragement. To be honest – I did this out of fear – not faith. And God has proven himself to be “faithful even when we are faithless” (2 Timothy 2 vs 13).
There have been opportunites for accommodation and copious amounts of love and support from people I have never even met. I am in awe of the love that has moved them. Thank you for imparting and investing time and hope into my little scary steps towards my future.
I have some new information to share with you with regards to my financial situtation! It has substantially decreased in size as I have received a scholarship for reduced funds through the John Wycliffe Needs Based Scholarship to the value of : £6500.

I, in essence need the university and college value more than anything else. That has brought me down to needing a total of:
R 290 587, 50 – R 106 380 – R90 000=R 94 207, 50
The scary part of this is that I need to prove that I can get the R 184 207, 50 by 30 June 2017 otherwise I will have to forfeit my place. SO please pray for me for my loan endevours and fundraising capabilities!
Thank you everyone! I am overwhelmed with gratitude!
