Disabled priest needs car repair to drive to various doctors’ appointments and eyesight therapy.
Hello, my name is Lisa Schoonmaker. I am an Episcopal priest, presently disabled due to traumatic brain injuries I sustained due to sleepwalking. Recently, further complications have arisen from the injuries, and are causing frequent, severe headaches, loss of balance and double vision. As a result, I am not able to continue my interim and supply work at this time. I have no income to pay for an urgent car repair to replace an entire strut/shock absorber assembly. I rely on my car as my sole means of transportation to see my doctors here and the specialists at Hershey Medical Center and Johns Hopkins.
I love serving God. I love serving the people in my community and the parishes for which have been a frequent supply priest. I love giving my service to both God and the Church. Now I find myself in need of help. It is hard to ask for help having always taken care of my own needs, but I need the assistance of the People of God so very much right now.
The repair to my car will cost $1600.00 [with some added on for the 5% GoFundMe.com fees and the bank transfer company].
I also covet your prayers for my healing and for any and all who wish to help with this obstacle to special medical help.
I love you my brothers and sisters, God bless you whoever you are, and whatever you choose or can afford to give.
Your faithful servant, Lisa+.
