  • Sponsor a Student

    The students at Baptist Bible Institute of Pohnpei have ranged in number from 16 to 54 since its inception. Sometimes students have to drop out for personal or spiritual reasons, but for the most part we have seen the numbers drop for lack of funds. The institute only charges $40 a year, broken down into $20 a semester or $5 per course block. However, since the average wage is only around $1.50 an hour, this can be quite hard on many, especially families that have multiple students. In addition, in most cases several families share a home and expenses while only a few may actually even have jobs. Having enough money to buy gas to go to church is sometimes even a problem people have to deal with here. So, the added expense of the institute can be quite daunting for many and some have had to sit out a course block here and there because of lack of funds. I wanted to request from you that you pray and see if God would lay on your heart to support some of these students in their study. Forty dollars a year would pay all their expenses and would allow people who desire a deeper study about God an opportunity to do so consistently.
