Besides the needy students, we also have lecturers who need constant upgrading to provide better training for our students. Such upgrading also needs funding. We are inviting you to prayerfully consider supporting them.

We thank the Lord for the responses from some churches and members in becoming the “Friends of MTS”. Since we started “Friends of MTS” in January 2015, we have received a total amount of RM533,881.84 from 95 members/ Churches Who become “Friends of MTS”. These donations had been allocated to support 7 students from China, 12 Iban Theological students and 10 Iban STMS students.

For 2017 second semester, MTS is having some new ban students and some foreign students from china joining us for the Pre-Theological program. By then, we will have 17 Iban students (include 2 Pre-Theo students) and 9 students from China (include 1 Pre-Theo student) who need financial support. For year 2017, total amount needed to support ban students is RM101,620, whereas for students from China is RM51,440.

If the Lord leads you to support our needy students and lecturers, we will acknowledge you as “Friends of MTS”. Please fill up a “Friends of MTS” Sponsorship form and submit to MTS.
