I usually make a living consulting on intellectual property (patents) legal matters related to wireless communications engineering. I am also a volunteer seminary professor specializing in Reformed theology, primarily theology proper (the being, acts, and nature of God).
For over ten years, my dear wife's illnesses require me to work from home (or be very close to home). The consulting work is feast or famine. For over a year now it has been the latter, and I am, well, after maxing out all available means of credit, quite simply broke...to the tune of having less than $130 in my checking account at the time I am writing this.
I am embarrassed and shamed to have to create this GFM project, but I must put my personal pride aside in order to keep pressing onward.
If you are reading this it is likely you know something about me and should be confident I am a man of my word. If you do not know me, you might run some internet searches for "Ask Mr. Religion", or "Reformed Theology Institute".
In the meantime, not wanting to be just a mendicant, I will be pressing forward seeking any means of income outside my usual consulting efforts if an employer will have a 65 year old gray beard...greeter, burger flipper, janitor, whatever it takes.
Thank you for reading this far, and no matter what your decision may be, please remember me in your thoughts or prayers.
UPDATE Feb. 15, 2019: I have lost my home through foreclosure proceedings and have but three weeks to vacate. I am very stressed and struggling to resist falling into despair.
Your ongoing generosity and prayers are greatly needed such that I will be able to find new living arrangements.
