31 Days of Life: Day 26

She is precious. She is beautiful. She is loving and kind. She has given up a little bit. She is one. While I shouldn't share her real name here, will you please pray for our new friend? We have the honor of helping her with homework each week at the Boys and Girls Club. It is overwhelming that she is in the 4th grade and is unable to read or do basic math. 

After we've both spent different afternoons helping her, Brandon thinks she has given up. Maybe she's embarrassed to stand up for herself and seek the help she needs at school. Maybe she doesn't have a mom who will fight for her in the education system if the school staff is unable to help. We really don't know. It would be much easier to find someone or something to blame for her situation. It doesn't seem fair, does it? 

I'm so thankful we know that reading and math are not the hope of the world but that Jesus is. Pray that she knows the Hope of the World and that understanding will come with her school work. We truly thank you for praying this way.
