We are continually learning that everything here is beyond us and only possible in Christ! Today is an opportunity to put that "knowledge" to the test. Today I called to check out when the youngest guys would be heading back to school, knowing it would be while we are in the states. I wanted to make sure we had all our ducks in a row.  I learned that Eli will not be able to return.  Eli is a very special young man with special educational needs.  The school is not able to provide this.  He is not able to return to the public school here either. Eli has worked very hard for over 2 years in school.  We are about at kindegarden level.  I see, and his teachers from this year agree, that he has a problem in processing.  He can add, but he can not process that into numbers on paper.  He has learned to write, he can speak in English and Spanish, and loves people.   We honestly are not equipped!  We go through the doors that God opens for us regarding Eli's learning and education.  This past school year we were so blessed to have a North American couple as his teachers that worked so hard with him.   We completely understand that the school is not able to do that again.  We are just asking God, what is next?  We have always felt it would be best to homeschool him, but honestly have too many to homeschool to do that.  So we will see what God shows us.  I know He loves Eli.  I know He has a plan.  I know we are determined to see Eli go as far as he can go, and want to be a part of that.   So please join us in prayer for revelation, wisdom beyond ourselves, and more help. Not just people that want to cook and clean but those who can contribute educationally.  Pray for Eli that not one unkind word will be spoken over him or about him.  Pray that we can handle this in such a way as to not harm his already hurt little spirit.  He adores us.  We do not want him hurt.   We trust in our Supernatural God!
