First of all, my name is Agatha from Petra Christian University in Indonesia. I am one of the students who blessed enough to get this scholarship from Scranton. Until now I still can not believe that this is the way, the way that I can continue my study in university, the way that I can finally make one of my parent’s burden away. This is the way, His way.

            I still remember the moment when I got an email from Scranton to inform me that they pick me to be one of the students who got the scholarship. I still remember how I felt that day, that overwhelmed emotion of joy that is hard to describe. It was night time and I was on my way to my tutoring job when I got the email, and after I went home, I immediately talked to my family about it. They feel so grateful and blessed and told me to give thanks to Jesus for this opportunity. I always believe that there is a way for me to continue my study. I believe that Jesus is the one who always provide me with my tuition fees until now, and He will do the same thing with my last year in university.

            This semester has been terrific. The first thing that I noticed, that has been changed since I got the scholarship is that I and my family don’t have to be worry about how to pay my tuition fees anymore (obviously). I do not have to worry about how I can take my mid and final exam if the tuition has not completely been paid. I feel amazing, so blessed and grateful in any way. This really is a huge thing for me since I only have my mom to support my family (my dad passed away when I about to graduate in high school). With this scholarship, it can finally help to lessen my mom’s burden. With this, I want to say my gratitude towards Scranton for giving me this indescribable feeling of joy and for helping me and my family to pay my tuition, to take part of Jesus’s way for helping my family. And for readers, I want to tell you that there is nothing that Jesus can not do. You just have to do your part so that He can do His part for us. You just have to try and believe in Him.

 

P.s. I hope that you, readers have a great year and great Christmas! God bless you!
