Alabama Ambassador Brings Love and Faith Together
Disease is no respecter of age. When the Clotfelter family's young daughter, Faith, received a diagnosis of leukemia, they felt helpless. They would not have weathered the experience with as much grace and strength without their faith in God and the support of their church family and friends. Many helped the homeschooling family of thirteen shoulder child care and meal preparation, as well as meet a myriad of financial stresses.
Among those bringing personal, tangible help to the family was Alabama Community Ambassador Marnie Tabor. “I think the Clotfelters are an awesome family, very close-knit,” Marnie said. “Lenny and Vicki give special attention to each of their children. I wanted to help them with the burdensome expenses of traveling for Faith’s treatments, so we took a love offering at church, raised $800 for the Alabama State Ambassador Fund. Then the Home School Foundation matched that gift.”
Lenny is self-employed allowing him flexibility in his work. This has allowed him to actively join his wife Vicki in teaching the children, helping them keep up with their studies. The parents have encouraged their children to be self-sufficient, allowing them to attend to Faith.
“As we continue Faith’s treatments,” the Clotfelters write, “we want to express our deepest thanks and gratitude to God and to all those who have had a part in blessing us.”
