After raising my kids in New York as a single mother I moved to NC. I began my studies in Theology and religion a short time after my arrival. An education that could have been accomplished in 4 years or so took me almost 8 years. I took the time off in order to help my children in furtherance of their own education. I took care of my grandchildren in order to assist them in accomplishing their goals. I have no regrets and feel a sense of pride in how far we have come as a family supporting each other along the way. I finally received my Associate's degree in May of 2019. I will be starting to work towards a Bachelors's degree in Theology and religion in the late fall of 2021.In the meantime, I have the opportunity to take an incredible trip to Israel where I will learn more about the beginnings of my faith. It will be the first time I have ever traveled outside the country. I’m excited and a little scared but I’m hoping for the opportunity to walk in the path of the Savior whose teachings changed my life. The trip is centered on the places Jesus lived and taught. I never thought I’d ever had this chance to travel far beyond the place I was born and lived most of my life.I would normally not ask for help but time is short and I so much want to take a once in my lifetime trip to strengthen my faith. I will be in the company of Pastor David Guzick and other Christian who like me are looking to strengthen their faith. This momentous opportunity comes with a significant price tag of well over $7,600 (although the ability to go would be priceless to me). I would be required to have a deposit by May 31st, and the final payment by July 30th. Any donation, even as little as $5 or $10 would be greatly appreciated. I am thank you all in advance, may God bless,Lidia Santiago
