I am a freshman at the King’s College in New York City.
I came here from Colorado because I wanted a school with a Christian education but a realistic experience. In other words, I wanted to be taught by Christian professors while engaging with non-believers everyday. New York City gave me that. The King’s College gave me that. As soon as I moved here I started working with a mission program called Envision NYC. They help with the West African community around the city, teaching them English and helping them study for citizenship tests. It helps them get better and higher paying jobs. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful church where I’m starting to get involved with a community group and with more volunteer work. At the college, classes like Comparative Religions and Intro to the Literature of Hebrew Scripture have been my favorite classes. But in all my classes, we often begin in an optional time of prayer, and we continue to learn through the lens of the gospel. My teachers inspire me every day, and my classmates challenge me to think in new ways. Though every day isn’t a movie and there are days when I’m utterly exhausted, there is no place I would rather be. No college I would rather learn at. I am so excited for the work the Lord can do at this college and in this city. This is my mission field. There are so many different people groups which the Lord has placed here, and he is just waiting for us to see it. “For the harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few” Matthew 9:38. If you’re seeing this, we need your help! Help The King’s College by donating to its cause within the city. The Lord is working here, and you can be a part of it. We trust God’s power and his provision. But if you do not have money to give, I ask for your prayers. Glory be to Him in all things!
