Only the Lord can provide the hope that is needed following the loss of a child. In response to the overwhelmingly generous and encouraging gifts to Rev. Stephen Gualberto and family after the loss of his son, Orvi, the family has set up a memorial fund for pastors who are studying in the Philippines’ Bible colleges.
Orvi, at just 6 years old, had already expressed the desire to “follow in his dad’s footprints” and serve as a pastor. He would often put on his dad’s barong and shoes and “preach.” In memory of his passion for the pastorate, you can donate to the Orvi Memorial Educational Assistance fund.
Students studying Theology with the intention to pursue pastoral ministry will have the opportunity to apply each semester for $150 scholarships to assist them in their tuition expenses. Students studying at either Philippines Nazarene College (PNC) or Central Philippines Nazarene College (CPNC) will be eligible. At least five students at each school will be awarded this scholarship each semester.
It is the prayer of Orvi's family that these students will become effective, Christlike pastors who will lead the church in the Philippines in transformational ministry in their communities. If you would like to honor Orvi's life by helping to support education for the next generation of pastors, add your gift today.
Scholarship Cost = $150 per student per semester
Number of Students = 10
Total Donation Requested: $ 3000 per year for a period of 2 years = $6,000
