Providing for Our Son's Education

Lately, my wife has been repeatedly asking me to buy her a newer car. I figure that it’s due to the heat she experiences when she rides in our 1989 Nissan California. It is not tinted and is usually parked out in the street , exposed under the sun. This does not help cool the car in anyway but does the opposite, in fact. The air conditioning is not as cold as the new cars.

How nice it would be to have an Auto Allowance so we could make a downpayment on a new car and just pay a fixed monthly amount. But, this is an idea that is far-fetched in our case. And we are both content with what we have as of the moment.

Currently, we are paying mortgage and this is until 13 years from now. In addition to that, we are saving up for the education of our son who will be turning four this May and will start schooling this June.

We decided to homeschool him and we’re now in the process of inquiring about certain details from School of Tomorrow (Accelerated Christian Education) but we intend to register our son in the next few weeks which will cost about P15,000 instead of P21,000 because of my status as a full-time minister and then P3,000 every year after that. After our son’s assessment, we’ll know how much more we need to pay for the one year curriculum materials and manual. It will either be an extra P8,000 for one year or P12,000 if he doesn’t pass the reading readiness test. We are confident that God will supply all these needs as He has always shown Himself faithful.

Philippians 4:19 “And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
