In the midst of all the heart heartwrenching news about the kidnapped school girls of Nigeria, Pastor T.B. Joshua, put encouraging smiles of hope on the faces of his congregation at The Synagogue Church Of All Nations (SCOAN) when he pledged to support twenty-two year old Mary Jean Nleya from Botswana in her admission into Harvard Law School to study a Masters Degree programme.
Miss Mary Jean spoke of how Prophet T.B. Joshua has been there for her as a father would.
She said, “If there is any way to describe his role in my life it is that of a father.”
She explained how she came to The SCOAN looking for a father and T.B. Joshua accepted her and offered to sponsor her education. After graduating with her bachelor’s in Law from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, she gained an internship at the International Criminal Court in the Hague, Holland. To further her education and with T.B. Joshua’s encouragement, she applied to many prominent universities around the world including Harvard University in the USA.
If not for his support as a father, she said she never would have had the confidence or believed she could get into such prestigious universities. To encourage her in her faith even more, T.B. Joshua gave her a faith bracelet. To her greatest surprise, she gained admission into Harvard Law School to study a Masters Degree programme. The amount for school fees and supplies is $82,123 which T.B. Joshua pledged to provide.
T.B. Joshua has been well know for supporting Nigeria’s youth with various scholarship programs. Last year he supported Miss Yinka Oduwole, who was one of the youth who was brought up in The SCOAN. Yinka, who was equally sponsored in her Master’s Degree in Broadband Communication in UCL where she came out with a distinction, was sponsored by T.B. Joshua and Emmanuel TV Partners who had paid the sum of £100,000 to enable her to study for a PhD in the prestigious Oxford University.
According to Joshua, “What you make happen for others, that God will make happen for you.”
