Greetings friends of Malik!
As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to thank each of you who has contributed toward Malik's education through support and prayers. I would also like to update you on Malik's educational progress.
Malik has now officially completed two years of medical technician training - with two years remaining before he graduates with a bachelors degree in Medical Laboratory Science from IHSU in Kampala, Uganda.
This year, over the break between the third and fourth semesters, Malik traveled to South Sudan to volunteer at a hospital there. He was amazed to see how useful his new skills proved in that environment, and he returned to school energized and excited to double down on his schoolwork. In December, at the end of his fourth semester, Malik was consistently performing at the top of his class. I am so proud of him for his efforts and successes.
Malik will go back to school in February, and in addition to classes, he will be doing practicals at a local government hospital in Kampala to further hone his skills.
The tuition due for Malik’s coming semester is $1,600, not including the cost of board, books, and commuting to school.
Any money you could contribute toward Malik's tuition at this juncture would be very appreciated. Non tax-deductible donations can be made securely online through this YouCaring website.
However, if you would prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, you can send a check to David's ministry, which supports Malik and a handful of other students like him in Uganda. Just write "Love in Action Africa" in the memo of your check, and send the check to:
New Day Community Church
3600 Nichols Rd.
Kalamazoo, MI 49004
Feel free to contact me, Malik, or David (his host father in Kampala) with questions about his future goals and ways you can help him reach those goals.
Thank you again for believing in Malik's dream and his great potential.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to you,
