$4, 265.00. That amount is tuition and fees for a study-abroad program in London, England this summer. Add $135.00 to the sum -the cost of  a plane ticket with my dad’s frequent flyer miles to get the grand total of $4,400.  A month ago, when I applied for this program, I had no idea where the money was going to come from. Two and a half weeks ago, when I committed to taking part in this fantastic opportunity, I still had no clue how I was going to get the $4,000 plus to pay for it. All I knew was that if God wanted me to go, which my parents and I all felt He did, He was going to get me there somehow. I applied for financial aid and a separate scholarship and waited.

Three days ago, I checked my financial aid statement (which i’ve been waiting for since March 27th): they gave me a $2,000 grant. This was exciting (it’s normally pretty hard to get grants for this type of thing), but just half of the necessary amount. I still needed to hear back from the scholarship fund committee. And I did, very unexpectedly, the day after I got word from financial aid. They gave me the largest amount they offered for this particular scholarship: $2,500.

$2,000 + $2,500 = $4, 500 received > $4,400 needed.

“But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 SO. TRUE. :] He blows my mind again and again with His faithfulness and abundant generosity and care. London here I come!
