Here's some comments from a recent graduate....
It was on April 20 when I successfully finished my 15 years of studying. And now, new chapter of my life will be opened. World of employment is now welcoming me.
Starfish ministry, I thank you very much for your good heart, for your generosity, for your love, and for everything. Words are not enough to express how thankful I am but really I am so blessed to have you. You are God's gift for us. I want to do well in anything that I do because it is for the Lord, for the church, for my family, and also for you; I don't want to bring heartaches to all of you because you are all important to me. Thank you, thank you so much. I already finished studying but our communication will never be cut off. From time to time, I will still update you about what I'm doing.
One of our college students writes...
Following God was the most precious thing that I’ve done in my whole life. I am still in Feeding Program which became my family too. Caring for others was one of my heart’s desire. The feeling of completeness overflows in me every time I am teaching children and youths about the greatness of our God. While walking with God, I experienced lot of things either a best feeling or worst ones. I felt loneliness, anger, tiredness, and I also been criticized by the people around me. Those were not became a hindrance for me to stop serving God, all of those storms made me stronger and continue on working for God alone. In Him I have peace. I realized that, whatever happens as long as I’m with God I can overcome those struggles, and trials are like bubble that will fade away soon.
