Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go,

for to you I entrust my life. Rescue me from my enemies, Lord, for I hide myself in you. Teach me to do your will,

for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. For your name’s sake, Lord, preserve my life;

in your righteousness, bring me out of trouble. In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes,

 for I am your servant.    Psalm 143: 8-12

Praise the Lord for his provision, especially this week for Mr. and Mrs. Valenzuela making repairs; for Mr. Rains and Sgt. Major Garcia for attending mowing needs; for our incredible parents showering us with Teacher Appreciation gifts.

Prayer  That what our heavenly Father has created here in this unique school will be made aware to Christian parents everywhere; that others will be attracted to The Master’s School as those before them.
