Susan (not her real name) lives in a nation where her family is persecuted for their belief in Jesus Christ. Her family are ostracized from the community and are kept from having access to local jobs and education as a result.
Susan belongs to a people group which is considered to be 99.9% unreached and she has a dream of working in the medical field to help share the Gospel message, but because of her family’s status, it is not possible for her to find the money to pay for such an education. She would have to pay almost $2,000 USD per year for tuition, which is more money than she can afford. $2,000 USD is more than half a years salary for Susan’s entire family.
Because of Susan’s special situation, she will receive a BTJ scholarship to pay the entire amount of her tuition. Getting the funding into Susan’s country is not easy, so prayer is needed.
BTJ has a special scholarship to help people like Susan.
Due to severe persecution and restrictions on underground Christians in recent years, many Christian families are finding it difficult to give their children a proper education. Believers are being hit with huge fines they will never be able to pay. Sales of homes are being blocked, travel has been restricted, jobs are being revoked, and thousands are being arrested.
To help in this time of need, BTJ has launched the Martyrs Scholarship Fund to help children who are directly affected by parents facing restrictions, government pressure, surveillance, prison and other forms of persecution.
