“Hartland is preparing me in every way for life,”
Momota Koyal grew up in India, where education is the privilege of few. Providentially, from an early age, she attended the Springs of Life mission school, where she learned about Jesus and how to study the Bible. “Springs of Life not only taught me to read and write,” says Momota, “but also showed me the way to my Savior.” She was baptized in 2006 with a determination to enter the army of God and reach other lives for Him.
Today, thanks to your gifts, Momota is studying Elementary Education at Hartland College. “I didn’t want to go to a school where I will get only mental knowledge and no practical training. I chose Hartland because I wanted to get an all-around education from a Christian perspective.”
“Hartland is preparing me in every way for life,” Momota continues. “They let me teach and practice my skill at the elementary school. They are also teaching me different trades, so that wherever I go I can make a living and teach others to do the same.”
All who know Momota know her as a young lady with a mission. Her eyes burn with intensity as she shares her vision: “I plan to go back to India and teach the children who can’t afford to pay for school. I want to set up an elementary school for unfortunate people to be educated and to learn about Christ. So many people there have no idea about a loving Savior. I want to show them purpose in life and Someone who cares.” Already, Momota is acting on this vision. This summer, she will return to India with a team of six other students and two staff members to conduct Bible seminars, help the local midwifery program, offer community health expos, and share how Jesus can change lives.
“God will make a way when there seems to be no way.” These are the words to Momota’s favorite song, and they have been very true in her journey. “My spiritual walk continues to grow every day as God provides,” she testifies. “I no longer worry about finances for school. Sometimes money comes, and I don’t even know where it is from. It is always the exact amount I need. Even my books somehow get paid for.”
Because of your gifts to the Missionary Training Fund, Momota is able to attend Hartland College and prepare for her life calling. “You are opening the door for many to know the Savior and be saved for eternity through your investment,” she says. “Thank you!”
