Archived: Send Luke to Oxford!: no better place for his continued education than Oxford!

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 26, 2015

Send Luke to Oxford!


Hello!  My name is Jane Ann Hammond and I am Luke Teeninga’s fiancee.  We recently found out that Luke was accepted to the University of Oxford for his DPhil in Philosophy!  This is a dream come true for Luke and I am so excited at the prospect of going with him on this adventure to Oxford.  If you know Luke, you know of his passion for philosophy and I can think of no better place for his continued education than Oxford!

Unfortunately, Luke has not received funding from the university, so we are looking into other options for raising the funds to go. Tuition and college fees alone will come to approximately $33 000 per year in Canadian dollars.  The city of Oxford also happens to be one of the most expensive cities to live in in the UK.  We are trusting God that if this is where He wants us, He will provide the means for us to go! Would you be willing to give $20 (or more of course!) to support Luke and I and our Oxford adventure? If 1000 people gave $20 we would raise $20 000, or about 2/3 of the cost of tuition.  Please consider helping us out!

Note:  If you are going to be seeing us in person soon, we also would accept cash or cheques in order to avoid service fees.

Bonus Reward for All Donors:  We would love to host you in Oxford for a weekend, exploring the beautiful campus and city!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What will Luke be studying for his DPhil (aka PhD)?

Luke is going to be going for Philosphy of Religion. His topic for his dissertation will be Divine Hiddenness. I will get Luke to put a description up here, because he can explain it much better than I can.

What will Jane Ann be doing?

I will hopefully be working as a nurse, likely in a hospital in Oxford.  I am currently in the process of obtaining my UK nursing certification.

When will you be moving?

We will be moving to Oxford sometime after our wedding, which is September 12, 2015.  Luke’s program offically starts October 5.
