Bible School Scholarship
My name is Jennifer Siacunco and I am excited to receive this Bible School scholarship from Christian Leaders Institute. I was born in Hawaii on April 26, 1979, but I grew up in the Philippines for almost 17 years. I came back to the United States when I was 17 years old. My grandparents have been my model from a young age. My aunt encouraged us to attend Summer Church Kid’s Camp. My two sisters and I went to the camp since we were about in fourth grade and went to many youth camps. I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Savior during the camp. I loved the youth camp in the Philippines. We were surrounded by Godly role models who encouraged us in our relationship with God.
I came back to the United States with my sister seeking the American dream. I was preoccupied with work, and I was impatient about money, physical gratification, etc. The world that I lived in was full of distractions and pleasures that pulled me away from my spiritual life. I love to travel a lot. When I went to California one time, I stayed in my room and I found myself feeling empty. I opened my Bible and read. These verses stood out to me: Mark 8:36 “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” Also, Revelation 2:4 “But I have this against you, that you have abandoned the love you had at first.” I realized, only a connection to God can provide the ultimate peace. Since God is love, He is the ultimate source of nourishment for my soul. I have to seek Him. Mathew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added unto you.”
I am in love with God. My pastor at my church and my brothers and sisters in the church, my father-in-law, and my husband have been a source of spiritual inspiration. I am enjoying my singing ministry at church and our every Wednesday discipleship training and every Tuesday and Thursday Bible study.
I have enrolled at this beautiful Christian Leaders Institute with my Bible School scholarship. I pray that I will fulfill what God entrusted me as I receive ministry training at CLI.
