On Sept 1st, Lighthouse Ministries has a team of six people, Lewis, Sterling, and Benjamin Burke, Samuel and Jonathan Knopp, and Dily Palmer who will be running in a Rugged Manic 5K to raise money for the college tuition for three young men and one young woman at Heritage House. The cost of the tuition is $2,000 for all four students for the entire year. The team is hoping to cover the entire cost of the school year for these students.
All four students have grown up in Heritage House and are attending college in Phnom Penh. Lighthouse Ministries pays their tuition cost and housing in a local Church dorm. The students are required to get a part time job to pay for their food and other expenses. Each student must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 GPA in order to keep their scholarship with the ministry.
