Funds for Scholarships

The royalties of the women's daily devotional book series published since 1993 have helped support the worldwide scholarship program. Book royalties alone are not enough to fund the scholarships. Personal donations and fundraising projects are vital to keeping this program alive.

Special Project in 2019 and 2020

Thank you! We succeeded in raising $20,000 for Romania by December 31, 2020.


Often marginalized, more than 70% of Europe's Roma (gypsy) population live in dire poverty and become the victims of discrimination. Our goal was to raise $20,000 to help give gypsy women in Romania an education.

Nine years ago, Lina, a gypsy woman of Romania, was illiterate. Yet in just eight years she earned a master's degree in theology in Spain. During these long years in her course of studies, she received a scholarship award that helped boost her confidence and give her encouragement to continue her education. Lina serves in a church she helped evangelize. She teaches Bible classes, provides clothing to the poor, and helps wherever needed. She prays for an opportunity to serve as pastor among other gypsies. She speaks several languages, including Romani, the language of gypsies around the world. Presently, she is learning yet another language: English.
