“Most of my life, I have had the desire to bring the gospel into other parts of the world. Recently, I focused my efforts on increasing the longevity of missionaries currently on the field. It is my hope to establish a team of counselors, whose focus is to help missionaries find healing and restoration, in order to continue bringing the gospel to unreached people. Thank you for the tremendous blessing of this scholarship! It is an incredible honor to receive such generosity and support.”
