This 2009-2010 school year we will again be raising money to help with Joshua Mendy’s tuition, books and fees. Joshua is a United Methodist Coffeyville Community College student from Gambia who attends the 8:10 worship service. Just before he left Gambia to come to the United States last year, Joshua’s father died and he faced the hard choice of coming to CCC or staying home. His family decided that it would be best for him to complete his education. He could really use our help so that money can be left for his brothers and sisters. Checks should be made out to First United Methodist Church with “Scholarship: Joshua Mendy” in the memo line.
Update: we have raised $505 so far.
