Whose Dream am I Trying to Fulfill?

Before you or I start an orphanage, it’s important to ask and answer this question:

Whose dream am I trying to fulfill?

Is it my dream or the orphans dream? That is,  is it my dream to start an orphanage or is it the orphans dream that an orphanage be started? Do I have a dream to start an orphanage or do the orphans have a dream to live in an orphanage? Whose dream am I working to fulfill? Is it my dream or their dream. This question is important to answer.

THE DREAM SCHOLARSHIP

Do you have a dream?

Do you have a dream to become a pastor? Care for orphans? Serve as a missionary? Become an effective Christian leader? Grow as a Christian?

People with dreams have changed the world for the better when they acted on their dreams. There is nothing like a powerful dream to channel one’s passion towards accomplishing a great cause. To help people achieve their God-given dreams, Austin Bible Institute has launched a scholarship program called the “Dream Scholarship”. The dream scholarship provides partial tuition scholarships to any student who has a dream but lacks the funds to prepare herself for it.
