Please help support Yamo and family

As you may have heard by now, my husband Michael (a.k.a. Yamo),  by the grace of God, just survived a massive heart attack. He lost his pulse and basically “died “ twice,  yet God is faithful and allowed the doctors to be right there to catch this when it happened, and defibrillate!  The main heart doctor said that had he arrived one minute later, or been on the other side of the emergency room door when his heart stopped, he most likely would be dead right now! We are so thankful to Jesus for giving Michael a second chance with life! We are also extremely grateful to all of you for your prayers and love and support!
     I started this page,  because the doctor advised my husband that he should take a month off work due to the heavy lifting requirements of his job. (He has been working in tiles and/or construction for the last 20 years.) The doctor also suggested that Yamo should probably think about looking for a different line of work, if he wants to be around to see our three, young children grow up. Right now, my teacher’s  salary, by itself, is not sufficient to take care of our family of five . We are hoping to get temporary, financial assistance to be able to continue to pay our rent, daycare for two children, bills, food, and any medical expenses that arise, while we focus on my husband’s heart healing and while he seeks to find a new career. The goal is to raise enough to give us assistance with the next three months of bills, however any assistance, no matter how small will be greatly appreciated! Most importantly, please keep our family in your prayers, whether you can help us out financially or not! Thanks and Love to You All, the Yamasaki Family
