Hello again friends

My summer has been progressing slowly (much to my dismay) but there are a couple of things I would like to ask prayer for from all you lovely people. The first is my job; I was finally able to get a job after searching for one FOREVER (Thank the Lord for employment) but I wouldn't say it's my ideal job. First, it's high stress: I am working for Family Services and am working with kids who have special needs and to be honest, I don't think I'm cut out for it. But apparently my boss, the kids' parents and God all think otherwise. Another downfall is I'm not going to be getting a lot of hours (though the rate of pay is good.) This leads into problem number 2: paying for Kaleo. "The plan" was to work full time this summer and make a decent amount of money and then get goverment loans to pay for the rest. However I wasn't employed until late July and (according to Erin Karklins) the government doesn't want to pay for a certificate program. Sooo I will be looking into a bank loan and such things. So my prayer requests are thus, I really need peace to not go insane from stress, ability to take care of kids so they don't die of negligence, and funds to pay for Kaleo and equipment and stuff.

PS- I'd like to give a shout out to Toni who seems to be able to relate to at least one of my problems. Too often people don't talk about their need due to pride. Thank you for being honest and vunerable with us, it helped me to be honest and vunerable too.

It is not me who shares vulnerable things about me. Truth be told if I had it my way I would share nothing of the sort, but since I am growing slowly, God leads my fingers to type in moments of panic and distress ( which I was in when I posted) I still feel that way often, but the song called "savior please" by Josh Wilson helps me realize I myself will never be able to even get accepted into a program like this never mind paying for it.
I will pray for you as I pray for my own financial issue (which is often)
Also Thank You for sharing so that I don't have to feel like the only one.

Hey Tessa,
I understand the financial thing for sure. I had no idea how I was gonna pay for Kaleo but the Lord provides. And the government will give you loans. I know that I got a good chunk of Kaleo paid for with government loans both federal and provincial.

Keep trusting Him (even when it's hard).
