Not long into the program, we began getting requests for sponsorships for secondary and tertiary education as well. The Lord opened doors and hearts and soon several young people were in the secondary schools. We were eventually able to find sponsorship for three of the young men into Solusi University for a degree in theology.
Today, 20 years after we left Malawi, I received a request from one of these students. He is now a very valuable worker in Malawi Union. He has the opportunity to get his PhD in Leadership through Adventist University of Africa (AUA). It is a 5 year online program, but he needs around US$5,000 funding to cover the cost of enrollment and for the travel for the first 6 weeks on campus. He explained to me that his acceptance letter came too late for the Malawi Union to put it in their budget. Apparently this program only begins once every 5 years so he feels the urgency of taking it now.
I am much encouraged to know that if he does get this opportunity, He will still be on the ground, serving the Lord in Malawi. God has given him great leadership talent, and I do not wish to see it deferred into years out of the country for education. This is an open opportunity for anyone who may feel the Lord's leading to contact me so I can make arrangements through the Malawi Union to assist this case. Small donations will add up, so feel free to contact me for how you can help.
Thanks, and God bless us all!
