Dear Friends and Family,

I am very grateful to God for how He has been blessing, growing, and leading me. I want to share with you how God has been recently leading me to go to college and also give you an opportunity to help.

For the past six years, I’ve a been missionary here in Thailand. As I taught English for grades 1-10 over the course of that time, I learned many things and improved a lot regarding teaching English as a foreign language. However, there is so much more to learn about teaching, especially in implementing the principles of “True Education” laid out in the Spirit of Prophecy. Because of this and other reasons, I would like to further my education as the Lord leads at Ouachita Hills College.

Ouachita Hills College (OHC) is in the country near Amity, Arkansas. From what I have read and seen online, heard from friends who have been been there, and from what I have seen when I visited, it’s a beautiful school, inside and out. One of the things that draws me to this school the most is that the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy are the foundation of their instruction. That is the foundation that I want to have in my education. (To learn more about Ouachita Hills College, watch the two videos that I have shared. You can also go to their website There are also more videos on YouTube.)

Here are some reasons why I am choosing to take Secondary Education:

  • In some foreign countries (including Thailand), it's getting harder to legally teach in schools unless you have an education degree. So, if I were to work again in a mission school, the field would be easier and wider for me to work in.
  • I desire to have formal training that is based on the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy.
  • I would like to be trained to teach subjects other than just English.
  • I work better with youth or young adults than with younger children.

Please pray with me that the Lord will provide, according to His will, the funds for me to get to America, to buy some things that I need, and to pay for my first semester. My plan is to prepay my first semester and immediately enroll in OHC's work study program so that I can earn enough money so that I can pay for each upcoming semester and remain out of debt.

Note: I am planning to wait to buy my airfare until half the funds come in. 

Thank you for your prayers and support,

Sharon Steck
