Completing the Circle of God's Provision

“My lighthouse, my lighthouse, shining in the darkness, I will follow you.”

As third-grader Sophia Smit sings her favorite song from chapel, there is a hint of self-awareness in her little voice that she alone is breaking the silence in the room. There is something else in her voice though, that pushes back any hesitation to sing out. The song expresses her love and trust in a loving God. Your gift to tuition assistance is God’s loving care for Sophia in real time.

When Sophia’s mom, Jeanne, faced being a single parent, she knew she would need God’s help to raise her daughter on her own. As an answer to prayer, God provided for them with a good job. However, with the job came a long commute, and Jeanne’s thoughts and prayers immediately went to her daughter’s care. “It’s not easy to be so far away from your child,” she explained, “I don’t ever want my child to feel lost or lonely. When I’m not with her, I want her to know that there is a place, there is a Person that will help her, and truly it’s God.”

After attending an open house, Jeanne knew in her heart that CCS would be the best place, a trusted place, for Sophia. She prayerfully began her own start-up to help with the costs of school, and Sophia’s grandparents agreed to drive her to and from school.

Your gift completed the circle of God’s provision for little Sophia, and the impact is immeasurable. Sophia is thriving in school with good friends and loving Christian teachers. She describes her experience at CCS, “It’s almost like I’m home here.”

And your gift will live forward in the faith and love that resides in this little girl’s heart. More lyrics from Sophia’s favorite chapel song: “I won’t fear what tomorrow brings, with each morning I’ll rise and sing, my God’s love will lead me through, You are the peace in my troubled sea.”

Thank you for recognizing the power of a well-placed gift in a child’s life.
