Because of the COVID-19 crisis, we are ordered to stay in our homes. Most of my time has been spent in my church because that's where I live and sleep alongside my pastor and co-pastoral staff. COVID-19 is having an impact on us because we are limited in doing God's work such as going out to preach and do our evangelism. We are also limited with our services as we can only have up to 10 people gathering at a time. So we've been conducting our services mostly through online streaming from Facebook so that everyone can join and watch the service.
Before I enrolled at UH, I was a full-time missionary. I still am and now I am also a full-time college student because the church sent me to school so I can do my mission. As a full-time missionary worker, I don't have a salary because our church is a non-profit organization. My parents are not able to help me with money because of their own financial burdens. Money is an ongoing concern. I have appointments with my CARE counselor daily to help me with my academic path and she sent me an application of the Urgent Student Relief Fund, which is why I was able to apply for this fund since I told her my situation on finances as well as part of my life situation. I needed the urgent relief funds because it's difficult to find money in my situation to pay for my college fees.
Once again, I thank the donors because the funding was a help to bring down my college expenses, which brings relief. Thank you for answering my prayers.
