To become a Youth Leader

THE STORY:

I'm a young Russian Salvationist who wants to study Youth Leadership at W. Booth College for 9 months in Australia in 2014 and I need to pay for an intensive 1 year full-time residential course and have enough money on my account to prove an Australian Embassy that I can provide food, living costs, travelling, etc. while I'm in their country.

The whole entire course fee for 2014 will be AUD$6800 which covers tuition (AUD$1000)/text books/practicum/board and lodging. For my additional spending on personal needs, day off meals, entertainment and outings with other students that would bring my goal to AUD$10 000.

When I was 16, I joined the Salvation Army worship band to help with translation for african students that came here to study. This experience helped me to improve my English skills. But it wasn't the final goal in God's plan for my life. 2 years later,our worship band leader had to quit and I was appointed to replace him. I'm still in the Band, I am still a leader of the Band and God's always been on my side indeed. But there's a lot I need to learn about leading God's people in worship, teaching, living, etc. That's why I choose W.Booth College, Sydney, Australia, Youth Leadership Faculty!

Currently I work as an English teacher at some English School. I guess, I am doing well at teaching because many of my students like me and I enjoy teaching. However, my salary doesn’t allow me to save enough money to go to study at Booth College, though I’ve tried to do some savings since last November.

I feel God’s calling me to learn more of His guidance to bring the light into this world. So, if your heart and spirit are leading you to help me with money, I would be very appreciative and thankful! I know God will bless you ever more if you bless me! 

with love, Nat
