Studying at university level is an unheard-of achievement for many young, talented Christians around the world. Many families are too poor, because of discrimination, to pay the fees. Sometimes Christian applicants are unjustly blocked from higher education because of their faith. This is why Barnabas Fund helps Christians living in contexts of persecution to attend university; by helping some of them (such as Ambrose, a Christian medical student from Pakistan) to obtain professional skills we can strengthen an entire Christian community. In 2011, we supported 142 students to study subjects such as engineering, accountancy, business and medicine. Pray that God will give these Christian students wisdom and strength as they study for their exams and that He will use them for His purposes when they graduate.
