Trust Fall Faith
Raquel Villa came to Southwestern University from the area of El Paso, TX. She took a step of faith in attending SWAU thinking that scholarships and financial aid were limited and difficult to receive.
“An experience I will never forget from my time here is when God provided over $3,000 in just one weekend. This experience taught me patience, trust and that for God, nothing is impossible. I have seen that when God has a plan, SWAU’s faculty and staff are very understanding and they too will trust in Him.”
Raquel shares the message below for anyone interested in attending SWAU, but feels that finances can be a hindrance. “I know that finances are a great hindrance to many people, but I truly encourage those who share an interest in attending SWAU to take that leap of faith. I encourage you to join me in playing “Trust Fall” with God.”
-Raquel Villa, Psychology major
