Tanner Besosa: His Goals Now and After College

So Daniel was taken up out of the den, and no manner of hurt was found upon him, because he believed in his God. (Daniel 6:23)

In this post, Tanner Besosa tells us about how he is using his time at the Florida Free Bible, Missionary, & Work Training Center (BMW) to prepare for life after graduation.

A major in bible and a minor in missions

“I am working towards a major in bible and a minor in missions,” says Tanner. BMW gives us a working knowledge of the bible as well as missionary life skills.

How is college going for you? 

As I like to say, “I haven’t failed yet so it’s going really good!”

In reality, all is going well. My most challenging class is probably my most meaningful one—the study of the books of Daniel and Revelation.

I knew both books pretty well before this class, which helped a lot. However, the challenging part is the teacher, a very wise and godly man. He pushes hard to get the very best out of us. This is also why it is such a meaningful class for me. These are difficult books by themselves, and pushing to dig deeper into them means that I get so much more from the books. I see things I just didn’t look hard enough to find before.

And after college?

My goal after BMW is to become either a preacher, youth pastor, missionary, or a calling in that arena. I, however, am first looking to get my aviation pilot license. Then to use my training to be a missionary to unreached people groups, bringing the Gospel to those who have still not heard the Word. Today there are around 6,500 people groups that aren’t reached yet, and I would like to make it 6,499.
