Hometown: St. Elizabeth, Jamaica
Major: Biblical Studies/Counseling
Year: Graduated 2011; Now in Seminary

How did you hear about Faith?
God's purpose and plan in the life of a believer is always far bigger than what he can ever envision for himself (Jer. 29:11; Isa. 55:8-9). When I started at a Bible college in Jamaica I knew nothing of Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary, nor did I know that it would be where God would take me. God sovereignly worked through two former students of Faith who introduced me to the college.

How was your experience with the Admissions Department?
God greatly used the Admissions team of Faith to accomplish His purpose. The staff lovingly encouraged and aided me as I sought to organize the necessary documentation for the completion of the admissions process.

What are your favorite parts about being at Faith so far?
Being at Faith has brought with it the opportunity of meeting and developing wonderful friendships that I am sure will not only last for this life time but also for eternity. Daily I sit under the teaching of highly trained godly professors who are interested not only in my academic progress but also in my spiritual progress as well. As I interact with faculty and staff members of Faith I have come to realize that this Christ-like attitude is a central motor of the college.

How was the transition as an international student?
Several challenges have emerged as a result of cultural differences, some of which are changes in the weather, difference in food, and being away from family and friends. Despite these differences, though, God has repeatedly shown His grace by providing different persons to help in one way or the other to alleviate the effects of them.

What are your future plans?
With the training I am receiving at Faith, both formal and informal, I am convinced that I am being equipped to embark on the next phase of my life as God leads. I cannot say at this point exactly where that will be, but I am convinced that God does (Prov. 3:5, 6); thus I rest secure on His promise to give me an expected end.
