  1. What a great looking family. I am currently developing a Resource Program (for students with special needs) at Calvary Chapel of Melbourne, FL in their Christian School. I’m sure Edith could give me some pointers. I just visited the fairly comprehensive program they have at Calvary Chapel of Fort Lauderdale and was very impressed. It is my mission to see children with all ability levels be served in the Christian School setting. I am so blessed to be serving with an administrator who has the same passion. God is doing great things in our family and in our work. It’s so nice to see how God is using you. God bless your new adventure!
