Please see the pictures attached to Joana Kathlene Bitmal on the Mission Trips page a young girl that Sonflower International Ministry sponsored this past year. She was in her fourth year at Open Door and graduated April 1, 2011 as the Valedictorian of her class. I am so proud!! The past two years we have sponsored a girl that ended up being the Valedictorian!!!!!! As I have had a chance to visit with her this week she has shared with me that she would like to attend a Laguna College in San Pablo City to study to be an Civil Engineer. Wow!!!!! This is a smart young lady and as you can see a beautiful girl. Kathlene is active in the local missions that the Youth/College participate in each Sunday afternoon. They go to a local Village Church, a sister church of Open Door and minister to the children. Leading them in songs and games and Bible Stories. The price per semester for this college is,ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? $358.00 per semester. We have another girl that we already support and she is in her 4th year of college and her tuition is $180.00 per semester. Kathlene is desiring to go to a school that specializes in this field and I have encouraged her to reach for the top not to lower her standard but to seek the Lord and His provision for her education.
I told Kathlene that I would write a letter to my ministry partners back home and see who would like to specifically donate toward her schooling. Out of the 171 of you on my mailing list any amount will add up to take care of this need for this beautiful girl. She is so humbled as she watches the Lord supply for her. If you should desire to help you may go to the Pay pal on my web page or just mail a check to my address! I love you all,
Thanks for sharing so that many lives may be touched!!!! Tomorrow, Monday, is my last day here in San Pablo City. I already feel the tears beginning to well up in my eyes!!! Cindy
