Emmanuel Conservative Baptist Church, Walter and Faith Canedo

The Emmanuel Conservative Baptist Church, Walter and Faith Canedo have generously donated the funds to establish both the Bowman Biola Missionary Scholarship and the Bowman Talbot Missionary Scholarship.

George and Eileen Bowman were missionaries in Bolivia and then in Southern California for many years. The Lord used them to establish two Hispanic churches fairly close to Biola and one in Tijuana. Throughout the years many Biola and Talbot students served in those churches as part-time pastors and Sunday School teachers. Many of them went on the become missionaries or full-time pastors. Because the Bowmans and their churches were always missionary-minded, it is our desire to continue their missionary work through this scholarship fund.


Dear Faith and Walter Canedo:

I would like to sincerely thank you for the generous gift and scholarship I received. I am particularly grateful for this scholarship because my family has been really struggling financially and did not know how we would pay for the upcoming semester. My ultimate goal is to enter the medical field and do medical missions. This scholarship will help me pay for my education and help me get closer to graduating and achieving my goal. Again, I would like to deeply thank you for your generosity and your help.
