Home School Foundation Report

Friends of the Home School Foundation,

We are pleased to let you know that along with a growing number of
requests for help due to our troubled economy, the Lord has continued
to provide the funds needed to help these families. Thank you to so
many of you for making this ministry possible. While some ministries
are experiencing shortfalls, we have seen God faithfully provide for
the widows and struggling families. We praise God that He allows us
to be His channel of blessing.


Because You Helped

Each one who has prayed and/or given is a part of the blessings. Here
are just a few notes from grateful parents that testify to the power
of your gifts:

"I received the check yesterday to apply towards my daughter's
curriculum for this year. I am so thankful; I don't even know how to
begin to express it. You have no idea what this means to our family
right now. We have had so many problems finding the right curriculum
to work with her, and I have very high hopes for this year. I would
have never been able to afford this on my own. Please let everyone on
the board know that this is so huge for us. Again, thank you a million
times over!" --The B. Family

"I want to thank you for your prayers and generosity toward my family
this month and over the past few years. I pray God will restore and
bless all that so graciously gave and those who distributed the gifts.
Blessings to you and yours 'til He returns". --Mary C.

"Your ministry organization has been the lifeline we needed to
continue to homeschool. With your help I am able to purchase full
curriculum again." --Diane B.

"Thank you so much for the grant. God is so good to us. We are blessed
with two boys who are truly gifts from the Lord. They have many
challenges, but God is faithful to provide for our needs. We are
thankful to be able to homeschool our boys and your grant has made it
possible to purchase materials for them that we had put off for quite
some time. They feel like Christmas has come early!" --Tammy W.

Home School Contests Help Special Needs Children

As you may know, the proceeds from the contests HSLDA sponsors
throughout the year go to help the Home School Foundation's Special
Needs Fund.

Consequently, we want to promote these opportunities for homeschool
students to develop their skills and abilities. You can help us by
encouraging your family and friends to participate and get the word
out about upcoming contests for homeschool students. We greatly
appreciate your partnership in this project that promotes excellence
and blesses the needy!
