Elementary private school education

I have 3 wonderful children Shiloh age 10, Elijah age 6 and Amanda age 21.  The reason I am asking for funding is for Shiloh and Elijah to be able to attend Johnstown Christian School in Hollsopple PA.  Amanda graduated in 2013 from there, Shiloh has been there since Kindergarten (she will be in 5th) and Elijah has been there since PK4 (he will be in 1st).  They love the school, and I love the school.  The teachers are dedicated to teaching these kids not only academics but showing the love of Christ in all that they do.  I am a single mom and I receive no child support.  I had a good job but lost it last October (2015).  I haven't had a steady job since that time.  I was praying and asking God for direction.  One day as I was driving down the road, and praying, a voice spoke to me as plain as day saying, "why don't you start a painting company?"  So I did!  That was at the beginning of June.  God has been blessing, but finances are really tight.  I had start up costs for my company, and I was already a little behind on bills.  I really want my kids in a christian school but I cannot afford it at this time.  The bill for the school year for both kids is $9,652.79 which is $828.92 a month.  I am behind from last year also, I am not even sure how much, I am afraid to ask!  Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.  My kids love that school and they are both good kids and good students.  We are a close family, as you can see from the pictures.  We do alot of outdoor activities together.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading this and if you cannot contribute, please pray for us!  Blesssings, Lisa
