Ti: A story of beauty

by John Poysti - Director

It all began when one of our former students asked if we would be willing to sponsor a young lady for a year at Bible school. Our former student had been involved in discipling this young woman, whom we will just call “Ti,” and she believed that Ti would benefit greatly from a year at Holsby. There was a “risk” involved, because of Ti’s difficult past, but we agreed to offer her a scholarship and trusted the Lord to do what He does best: redeem an impossible situation and make something beautiful in His time.


Ti recently posted an update on her life, written by a very special lady who became her mother. The article is long, but well worth your time. You will find Ti’s story at the following link: http://madetomother.com/2014/05/26/a-mother-to-the-motherless-stephanies-story/

About John Poysti - Director

Life is good, because God is good! I can’t think of anything more fulfilling in life than to observe God transforming people more and more into the likeness of Christ, and as a result being transformed yourself – that is kingdom living at its very best. Holsby has provided me with a unique opportunity to invest in the youth of this generation as I draw on a lifetime of God’s grace and mercy with which He has blessed me. My life is further enriched by some key relationships. Christine is my best friend and faithful companion in life. And we have three beautiful daughters, two wonderful sons-in-law and four fantastic grandsons who bring us more joy than we could ever deserve. Currently, I find relaxation through reading theological blogs, riding my mountain bike on forest trails, keeping my woodshed stocked and tidy, and picking or gathering whatever is edible in the forests around Holsby.

  1. It’s amazing to read stories like this one.
    God can really go beyond any unreachable situation and heal it. God can what we can’t.
    It’s an encouraging experience, that teaches us what really means to be a mother (“When you become a mom you are a mom forever”) and a loved child.
    Thanks for posting!
