Her heart is to offer  a safe, loving environment for these kids to learn, keeping them out of the dangerous public schools for a few more years.   In order to offer middle school grades we need to finish construction of the third floor and complete a ton of paperwork.  We are trusting God to provide all we need and in the meantime we are preparing by setting up the school to educate these older students.  One of the first things we need are additional laptops that will benefit all of the students.  If you would like to honor Delmi to
