I Was Helped Although I Still Need More Help

When i completed primary seven i had no one to help me in paying my school fees in secondary because all my parents had died. I sat in village for three years searching for school fees to join secondary, because i was still young i could not get enough money, untill i got a chance, in fact it was a blessing i got someone who dicided to give me money to go back to school. The good news that this person fulfilled his dicision,she paid all my school dues untill i finishe senior four in 2010. But after completing my senior four she said she doesnt have money for adviced level. But i thank her because now i am intelligent i can now rule myself, and i acquired knowledge from school. But in my dreams i want to process my education to higher level . Through my prayers i would like to get some one to help me so i can complete my studies
