Hi family and friends,

As many of you know, my life has had a big turn around over the past year whilst I’ve been in the Victory House Rehabilitation Program. I was sick and tired of living the way I was living and so I made a decision to do whatever it would take, to change my ways. Being honest, and learning to ‘sit’ with myself, without self-medicating, was the most humbling and toughest thing I’ve ever had to do. I can now look back and honestly say, it (and the love and support of my loved ones) has saved my life. I am so grateful.

Now that I have my life back again, I have a strong desire to help others that are stuck in that place of darkness that I was in. So I have been given a role at Victory House of interviewing, guiding, and mentoring new men into the program. I love what I do because it gives me a real sense of fulfilment and purpose. I realise this is a part of why I am still alive today.

I am writing to seek your support because the Australian Department of Immigration has decided to deport me back to NZ because of my past history. I have sought the advice from an Immigration Lawyer and after looking at all the options, the following is the best pathway if I'm going to have any chance of staying in Australia.

1. Apply for a Visa $7000.
2. Immigration Lawyers Preparation fee $6600
3. Other costs $1000
Total $14600

I only have 2 weeks to raise the funds to apply and I'm hoping by some miracle that everyone who reads this will help out in some way. Whatever you can do will be a blessing.

My wife, mother and established Australian family are another main reason that I want to stay in Australia. Thank you in advance for your love, support, and prayers.
