A nightmare I would not wish upon my worst enemies. Praise be to God as He opened doors, gave insight and favor which led to my grand-babies return and safety! Thank You, Lord!
However, it's been a domino effect of challenges.
While my son was looking for his children, his rental unit was sold. By the time he got them safely back to Hawaii, he had two weeks to clean out and move. They have been without a home for about a month now, and then his car broke down! This made the challenges even greater in trying to find work and a home for him and the children--but the children are safe and happy to be with dad.
Praise God! Just today he was approved for a rental unit. First month’s rent is covered but not enough for deposit, and he needs that before they can move in.
In the past three months, he has spent well over five thousand dollars on lawyer fees, travel expenses, airfare to bring the children from out of state--home and so much more, not even counting everyday living expenses for a family of five.
Then today he received another bill from the attorney asking for more money-due by Nov. 7th, the day before his custody hearing.
I'm asking for help, again. Many of you have contributed to fly the children home, of which we all are so grateful. Thank you again for your generosity and kindness you have displayed.
However, because of all the diversions and challenges, doctor visits, registering for school–late entry finding a home and broken car, attorney, etc.
With all the money and energy spent I'm asking for help in several forms.
1. Prayer: prayer for favor, housing, peace, guidance.
Prayer for the children, which have endured this recent, traumatic experience.
Forgiveness in all of this is beyond comprehension. However, we have chosen to forgive-pray to give my son the strength and courage to walk this out.
2. If you are a mechanic or know one—willing to exchange for work. Perhaps someone has a vehicle you may want to donate to help a single dad and his four small children, to get on his feet.
3. Work: my son is a carpenter by trade. He is very good at what he does. If you need a deck, a carport, renovations of all sorts, he's your guy. He is a hard worker, and you won't be disappointed. (message me)
5 Finances: it's evident they have a mountain of expenses ahead, attorney, rent, deposits, car, etc. Their costs far exceed my goal today on Go Fund Me, but we are trusting God for the work to come in, that will bring it all together.
If he did not have all the expenses of attorney fees, and flying from Hawaii to CA to rescue his children, he would have the money. Unfortunately, now he doesn't.
If you can help in any of these areas, this will be much appreciated.
And finally, if you would be so kind to share this request with your FB friends to get the word out perhaps there is someone somewhere whom God will touch who will help.
