Sponsor a Student’s Degree

In the heat of the relentless sun, a weak, frail, and sickly man laid by the healing waters of the pool of Bethesda. He was unable to walk and had been laying by the pool for thirty-eight years and counting. His healing was steps away, but he had no way to get to the pool. He was all alone and tirelessly hoping.

The strong, quick, or connected were always among the first to get to the pool. Unfortunately, this sick man was none of these. Then, Jesus showed up.

Jesus approached the man and said, ‘Do you wish to get well?’ The sick man answered Him, ‘Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred, but while I am coming, another steps down before me.’ Jesus immediately cured him, and he was able to get up and walk.

Today, there are many individuals waiting by the education “pool of Bethesda,” hoping to be carried into the “healing” water. The world’s population has a great need for education to help bring hope and healing to friends, family, and communities but is unable to reach the “pool” due to finances, time, location, family, disabilities, or other reasons. Unfortunately, only the strong, quick, and connected appear to have access to education, but CLI is working to provide everyone with an education, and we need your help through sponsoring a student’s degree!
