This man is doing great things, I wish we have more pastors like him. Prophet T.B. Joshua has made the dreams of a prodigious young student come true after sponsoring her to study a Masters Degree in the prestigious Harvard Law School, USA, to the tune of over $82,000 (about N13million).
Mary Jean Nleya, 22, shared her testimony during the church service at The Synagogue, Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) in Lagos on Sunday 11th May 2014. According to her, she met T.B. Joshua several years ago as a visitor to The SCOAN and explained her educational plights to him:
“I told him that I had no father that was taking care of my educational fees,” she said.
“He informed me that I needed only Jesus Christ to be my Father and that He would take care of all my needs. From then on, I became a SCOAN scholarship recipient.”
The gifted student from Botswana narrated how the cleric had been like a father to her morally and materially ever since. “If there is any word to describe the role Prophet T.B. Joshua has played in my life, it is like that of a father,” she emphatically told the congregation.
“When I was there, he told me that I should go for my masters in the best university in the world, which is Harvard University,” Mary-Jean narrated, adding that she was daunted by the prospect as it is a well known fact that “admission into Harvard University is incredibly difficult.”
Remarkably, the talented law-student received admission to the revered university. “I am thrilled and excited to tell you all today that I gained admission into Harvard University,” she declared to the joyful congregation.
But upon learning of the huge fees involved, she was doubtful as to whether the scholarship would be continued. “I ended up telling him (T.B. Joshua) and he committed to paying $82,123! I will be going to commence my studies any moment from now,” she gratefully remarked.
Mary-Jean advised youth to look for a ‘mentor’ who would inspire them in life. “I didn’t believe in myself enough and my potential to apply to the world’s best university. But because I had a mentor, a father to inspire and encourage me to apply, I drew a greater plan. I was inspired to stop living within a four foot ceiling and to reach for the top and make the sky my limit.”
In his comments, TB Joshua stated that she was just one of the many students worldwide who were receiving scholarships. “What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you,” he declares.
