As many of you know, for the last four years of my life I have been consumed in completing my doctoral studies.  This past year I have had the priviledge to transfer to Oxford graduate school to complete my doctor of philosophy degree (D.Phil).  While I am on schedule to complete my dissertation this May, I still have much work to be done...but there is a light at the end of this tunnel! But, I have ONE MAJOR hurdle to cross, and I need the help of my friends and family to make this dream a reality.  

This January I am due to report to the Oxford Center for Christian Studies in Wycliffe Hall at Oxford University for an intensive week-long academic trip to meet with my advisor/mentor, and finalize necessary research and writing.  While I would love to think of this trip as a "vacation"- it will be far from it.  I will be spending 6-8 hours per day in seminars, and the Bodleian Library voraciously reading, rigorously researching, and prolifically writing my dissertation.  Although, there is one aspect of this trip that I am really stoked about-  I get to have lunch with one of C.S. Lewis' surviving former students at the famous "Eagle and Child" pub.

This will be a difficult and amazing trip - but one that I must take to ensure graduation this Spring.  Would you please consider giving any amount to help my family and I cover these expenses.  My goal is $3000.00.  Here is an overview of what the costs are: flight ($1800), housing ($800), Oxford Fees ($200), Misc. ($200). 

MY GIFT TO YOU!!  For EVERY PERSON who donates $10 or more to my fund, I will personally send EACH of you a HANDWRITTEN postcard from Oxford, UK while I am there to say a HUGE THANK YOU for helping make this dream a reality!
