Lance’s Letter to His Sponsors
I am writing you from Urshan College, where I have been living since August. I cannot even begin to tell you how exciting it is to be able to attend Bible College.
I want you to know that I greatly appreciate you and TCM for continuing to help support me. I’m not sure if you know my story, but when I was 11 years old, my mother committed suicide. This was a nightmare for my father and me, and he was not able to overcome his grief. When I was 15, dad overdosed on drugs and left me orphaned. I actually discovered TCM on-line, and a couple of weeks later, my aunt brought me to Tupelo.
When I arrived at the Mansion, I was hardened and angry—scared and hurt—fearful and hopeless. But with the help of the staff, having sponsors like you, and coming to know Jesus Christ—that all began to change for me. Now, I am a blood bought child of the King. Not long after coming to TCM, I was baptized and was filled with the Holy Ghost.
I am blessed that TCM has allowed me to continue to receive support from you. I still have a place to call “home” when I need to get away for a weekend or a holiday. My classes this semester are Choir, Old Testament Literature, Introduction to Theology and College Success. I am so hungry for knowledge of the Word of God and consider it a privilege to be here.
Thank you for all that you do. I hope that you are doing amazing. I want you to know that I think of you and pray for you often. I will be “home” at TCM for Christmas and I want to thank you in advance for the part you play in helping to supply my needs, wants and college expenses.
God bless you. I hope to make you, Bro. Judd, the TCM staff and board proud of me as I continue to pursue the things of God and allow Him to turn my once broken life into something great for His service.
