"I'm currently attending Andrews University. Neither my parents or myself ever dreamed of stepping foot on, or much less attending a university like this. It never even crossed our minds. But God? He's proven over and over again in our lives that He's faithful to supply all our needs, and to do so even more abundantly than we could ever hope for.
It's a miracle that I'm here, but it's also a crazy sacrifice.
I can't thank my parents enough. Not only for committing to getting me through school, but for supporting me in my decision to dedicate everything God has given me to serving Him and becoming a pastor. We've never had much, and there definitely won't be earthly rewards like money or fame in the life I've chosen to compensate for their sacrifice, but my parents have taught me that if that's what God calls me to do it's worth everything we are and can be. Because the reward isn't here but in heaven, in being with Jesus."
