Car Battery Needed Independence MO

I know a family in need of a side post coldcrank car battery, with enough life to get through the winter, to start a large vehicle. I believe they said 1000 amp. They haven't got the money to buy a battery.

CPRS could be the right place for you!

CPRS could be the right place for you!

Can I afford a private school education?

With tuition rates among the lowest in the Kansas City metro area, CPRS offers three financial aid programs to assist families, including opportunities to volunteer or tuition reductions. These programs depend on the needs and qualifications of the family.

Is CPRS really right for all ages?

CPRS is a family school with a unique atmosphere that offers students of different ages, from kindergarten through high school, the chance to work and play together in a safe and cooperative environment. Lifelong friendships are often fostered through interaction and involvement in our school events and activities. Many of our families enjoy the convenience of having all their students at one central location.

What about the extracurricular opportunities they’ll miss?

Since CPRS is a small school with a close student-teacher ratio, students may participate in extracurricular activities. We offer a surprisingly wide variety of opportunities including athletics, stage performance, robotics club, student government, and our service club.

Will my children be academically prepared for the future?

Academic opportunities offer our students a wide variety of courses. Language arts, math, science, and social studies are emphasized. In addition to these core subjects, elementary specials include Spanish, music, art, P.E., and computers. In middle school, students add study skills and careers courses to their coursework. High school level courses branch out to include standard studies as well as college preparatory material in areas of language arts, science, and math. We offer 58 different classes on the high school level to accommodate a variety of academic abilities and interests.

Can my child still earn scholarships by graduating from CPRS?

CPRS students taking the ACT test have outperformed at the national and state level for 20 of the last 23 years. Those who choose to enter the work force immediately after high school find themselves well-prepared. Most of our students go on to higher education, whether at 4-year colleges, community colleges, or trade/technical school. Our graduates qualify for a wide variety of scholarships and financial opportunities.

And He Shall Send Jesus - Francis Harper

And He Shall Send Jesus

Dear Ones,

Most of us recall the terror of the pop quiz we experienced during our years in school. They were given at the whim of our teachers and always seemed to be given at the most inopportune times. We soon learned that we needed to be in a constant state of readiness for these tests. Similarly, we need to be in a constant state of readiness for the Lord’s Second Coming. “Therefore be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of Man cometh” (Matthew 24:51 IV; 24:44 KJV).

The wise virgins were ready when the Bridegroom came. “And they that were ready went in with him to the marriage; and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins [the foolish], saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, verily I say unto you, ye know me not.” Watch, therefore; for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of Man cometh” (Matthew 25:9-12 IV; 25: 10-13 KJV).

Other scriptures that emphasize the exact timing of the coming of the Lord as being unknown, and a surprise, are these: “But of that day and hour no one knoweth; no, not the angels of God in heaven, but my Father only” (Matthew 24: 43 IV; 24:36 KJV). “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night . . . (2 Peter 3:10). “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and the Lord whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in; behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:1).

Jesus taught that although his elect would not know the day nor the hour of his coming, they would know when his coming is near. He said, “Now learn a parable of the fig tree [The fig tree symbolizes Israel]: when its branches are yet tender, and it begins to put forth leaves [May 14, 1948, Israel became a nation], ye know that summer is nigh at hand. So likewise mine elect, when they see all these things [signs such as are given by the Lord in Matthew 24, Luke 17 and Luke 21], they shall know that he is near, even at the doors” (Matthew 24:42 IV; 24:33 KJV).

The Lord will select those who are worthy to come forth in the First Resurrection. Those of the First Resurrection will live with the Lord during his millennial reign of a thousand years. The doors or gates will be closed at the time of his coming. Many who expect to be within the gate may find themselves locked out when Jesus comes, as were the five foolish virgins. How tragic this will be!

Imagine, you are in your car driving home. Your thoughts are on the game you want to watch and the meal you will eat. Then suddenly, a sight unlike any you have ever seen fills the sky. So you pull over and get out of your car. As you do, you see you are not the only curious one. The roadside has become a parking lot! What you see has never been seen since it was seen by the shepherds nearly two thousand years ago, “A multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace; good will to men” (Luke 2:13-14). Suddenly all is quiet and there He is, Jesus has come again! All are standing or kneeling in profound reverence. Forget stock markets, sales meetings and football games. Most of the things that mattered before, matter no more. For Jesus Christ has come!

Love to all,

Francis Harper


And He Shall Send Jesus

Shortly after the great day of Pentecost and the miraculous healing of the “man lame from his mother’s womb” (Acts 3:3-10), Peter preached, “Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord; And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you, whom ye have crucified; whom the heavens must receive until the times of restitution [restoration] of all things which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began” (Acts3:19-21).

Peter continued by reminding his audience of the prophetic words of Moses: “For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren [of Judah], like unto me [like Moses—I have counted 33 similarities in comparing Moses and Jesus]; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass, that every soul, which will not hear that Prophet shall be destroyed from among the people” (Acts 3:22-23). If Peter was with us today, his message would quite likely be the same, or very similar.

In Peter’s second letter to the saints, he warned: “Knowing this first, that in the last days there shall come scoffers, walking after their own lusts. Denying the Lord Jesus Christ, and saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the father’s fell asleep [in death], all things . . . have continued as they are from the beginning of creation. For this they willingly are ignorant. . . [that] by the word of God the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished . . . [God speaks and it is done!] But concerning the coming of the Lord, beloved, I would not have you ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day” (2 Peter3:3-8).

We have waited two days [two thousand years], for the return of Jesus. We are living at the dawning of the third day. Jesus warned the twelve: “And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him; and the third day he shall rise again.” (Mark 10:34). He was speaking of his resurrection from the dead. But why was he resurrected at the dawning of the third day? It is likely that his resurrection early on the third day was intended to be a type and shadow of his return and the resurrection of the saints.

Jesus chastened two of his disciples as they were walking toward the village of Emmaus, “O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the Scriptures the things The Third Day concerning himself” (Luke 24:24,26). The Lord expects us to know and believe all that the prophets have spoken. The Lord said to Moses, “Go unto the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow [two days] and be ready against the third day; for the third day the Lord will come down in the sight of all the people . . .” (Exodus 19:10-11). Hosea prophesied: “After two days will he [he will] revive [resurrect] us; in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight” (Hosea 6:2).

He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord will wipe away all tears . . . And it shall be said in that day, lo, this is our God: we have waited for him, and he will save us . . . thy dead men shall live together with my dead body shall they arise . . . And the earth shall cast out the dead” (Isaiah 25:89, 26:19).

From Tim Saylor
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Let His will be done.

November 14, 2016, Sarah went to the ER with really bad headaches with nausea. She was 34 weeks pregnant. Two days later Sarah had a crainiotomy (brain surgery) to remove her tumor. It ended up being malignant. Baby girl was born healthy 6 weeks later. Sarah started treatment of the tumor shortly after. We stopped treatment to go a natural route. Chemo and radiation don't cure, they just treat the growth of the tumor. Sarah detoxed for two weeks and changed her diet to mostly vegetarian with no refined sugar or flour. Fast forward to now. Sarah started having intense headaches again. We quickly went to ER and they did a CT scan that showed possible growth that was confirmed with an MRI. This tumor is causing swelling in her brain and causing pressure on her brain stem. Sarah has health insurance. She doesn't have life insurance. I am not saying she is going to die, but not having to worry about bills while she recovers and being able to take care of our two daughters without that worry is the reason for this fund. God has carried us this far, and He will continue to be with us.

Sarah is stable enough that we are out of the ICU. She is still in quite a bit of pain. Focusing on interactions or even eating are causing her pain and heart rate to spike. So she is just resting and sleeping.
