Doors to Education

"As a World Communion Scholar . . . I can concentrate on what really counts: helping people who are in the darkest corner of addiction and despair to find a new life in Christ." says Laura Pressley.

Miss Pressley will use her skills she received as a World Communion Scholar to help women dealing with addiction. The faces and stories of the women she met while volunteering on a first-aid squad have stayed with her as she pursues a master's degree in counseling and addiction ministry at Methodist Theological School in Ohio. She hopes to create an inner-city residential treatment program for women of color.

"I know it's God's will for my life because I've never felt so much at peace with myself" says Laura Pressley.

Without Scholarship help from funds raised on World Communion Sunday, Miss Pressley wouldn't have been able to sign up for classes this year.

To help Laura and other students reduce their school debt, please give to the World Communion Sunday offering. Click here to give online.
