Dear Friends and Family,
It is with great sorrow and a heavy heart that I share with you my family's story in assistance for donations to help start a new beginning.
This past Thursday, I received a call from my mother that forever has changed the course of our life. My mother told me that my sister, who is 17 years old, had confessed to her that my father had sexually abused her for many years as a child. My heart dropped, as I had just received that hardest phone call of my life. I quickly let her know to leave the house, afraid of what might happen after my mom confronted my dad about it. Denial was not in his words. With a heavy heart, I confessed to her the very dark secret that I had held from her for many years... he had done the same to me.
Since that day, there's no sign of my dad anwhere. Since that day, my sister and I have reported him to the police. Since that day, a lot has changed.
It's been a healing process for my family and I as we pray for restoration and healing in our hearts. My sister, my mother, and I are slowly coming out of this stronger than ever by God's grace. One of the many challenges through this is financially providing for all the financial necessities since my dad took care of them all.
In the midst of all, God has been good to us. As my sister was approved for her DACA renewal scholarship that is due next week. Also, my mother has been able to receive full financial assistance with food. My work has been understanding of the situation and is fully supportive of any time off needed. And as young as my brothers are, God has given them an understading heart that they will not see their dad for a long time, if they ever do.
I come humbly to you in seek for financial assistance in oder to help my family start a new beginning. Your donations will be greatly appreciated, in efforts to pay for the house and land that was recently bought by both my parents as we came to find out that it has not been paid for the past four months. Your paryers are very much welcomed and needed. Please pray for my family's healing and well being that God will allow to see us through this.
Thank you in advance for your prayers and donations!
God is good.
