Student Sponsorship 2008-2009

To finish off this series of posts about the 2008-2009 Student Sponsorship Program, here are our university students, along with two special students. Many of our university students have been in the sponsorship program for some time, and it is thanks to your help that they have made it this far. For $30/month you can help one of these 6 students pay for tuition, books, and other costs.

Azucena Muruaga: Azucena is studying Business Adminstration in San Pedro and working part time. She is one of the most faithful young adults in the church, participating in youth outreaches and tambourine ministry.

Timothy Tolman: Timothy is in his first year of Civil Engineering in the city of Torreon, having entered university this year at the young age of 16.

Pedro Mejia: Pedro has made it to university through the help of sponsors. He is in his second year studying architecture and is a worship leader in the church.

Elisa Tolman: Elisa is currently in her second year studying International Business in Torreon. She also keeps a full complement of church activities, including tambourine ministry, small group leader, and teacher.

Juan: Juan is currently working as a farm labourer and wants to be a mechanic, but can't afford the tuition. His family hosts one of our weekly home churches.

Cesar: Like his brother, Juan, Cesar works as a labourer but want to study to be a mechanic. His family is not wealthy, but are some of the most generous people we know in the church.

Special Students

We have a new family in our church who is faithful, hardworking, and extremely poor. The mother and father are working towards their primary school equivalency certificates so that they will be able to find better jobs. For $25/month, you can help provide a brighter future for this family!

Pablo Vazquez Amparan and Maria Rivera Jimenez: Married with 3 young children, this couple have few material possessions but are rich in the kingdom of heaven because of their generosity and willingness to serve. They are eager to earn their primary school equivalency certificates and provide a better life for their daughters.
