When Eduardo Andrés Vergara Silva, from Chile, returned home from a full-time mission in Colombia, he wanted to continue his education but was unable to enroll in school because of his financial situation.
“I heard about the Church’s Perpetual Education Fund, and my institute teacher encouraged me to apply. It wasn’t easy for me to go to school, have a family, and work part-time, but I knew that if I could achieve my goal of graduating, I could bless my family with a better life. Thanks to the PEF, I was able to graduate and become a physical therapist. I now work in a clinic and train students who come from the university to do their internships.
