Being an international student is a radical experience. I was blessed to visit my family this interterm for the first time after I started school. Now I am back at Biola, and I am yet to pay the tuition to get enrolled for the spring semester of my junior year. My parents are unable to support me financially due to my dad's low income - they are still providing for my two younger brothers as well. I've been raising support to cover most of the tuition expenses since day one, and I am taking care of paying rent myself.
My God is the God who provides, and I am not afraid or ashamed to proclaim this. The time at Biola University has been significantly impacting my character. I believe that there is a greater purpose behind these changes and my time here. I believe in God who holds all things together. He is in absolute control, and he will provide and take care of me.
