Austin’s “Brothers” Wouldn’t Let Him Give Up – And Faith and Community Got Him an Education.
Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. Luke 12:33
Austin grew up with six sisters, so of course he chose to live in an all-boys dorm went he started attending Biola University. This was his chance to develop male friendships, a group of brothers that would grow together to become men. He didn’t realize that calling these fellow Christian students “brothers” actually came with the support and family he needed to pay for school. When he ran out of money, they did not run out of love.
