Emergency Help for Rhonda

Greetings everyone in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. If you have received this Go Fund Me request, it means that you are either friends with, related to, associated with, or your life has somehow been touched by my dear friend and Soror Rhonda Crane.

Rhonda has currently found herself in a horrible state of economic/financial disability and is on the verge of losing her beautiful home that she worked so hard to get. I implore you to find it in your heart to please, give any type of contribution (big or small) in order to help Rhonda her keep her home.

As many of you already know, Rhonda Crane is a Bay Area local musician who plays piano in addition to several percussion instruments. Rhonda also sings professionally with two ensembles; one band and one  acapella group. Her vocal gifts have allowed her to travel the world with the Hawkins, Street Sounds, and more recently Chelle  and Friends Juke Joint.

Rhonda’s goal in life is to teach the “joy of music.” She currently teaches choral music to elementary children all over the Bay Area. She has been associated with the gospel music legendary Hawkins Family for over 30 years thru both the National Music and Arts Love Fellowship Conference, Community Choirs and Love Center Choir. She is currently a member of Love Center Ministries where she is part of the Ministerial Staff and holds the position of Director of its children’s church.

Rhonda teaches both private vocal and piano students from home and she calls it “Ms. Rhonda’s House of Music.” Her Mantra is “No music, no life.” This amazingly talented woman of God also loves to crochet and make quality accessories for sale value which she calls “wearable art.” Gardening is done for its therapeutic value and she says “the food rewards are quite gratifying!” Rhonda shared that her “FAITH IN GOD is all that has kept me sane through my troubles!”

Rhonda’s financial troubles are starting to cause her to suffer depression; lack of energy; weight loss and anti-socialism. As a musician it is difficult to find status quo employment. Several agencies find her jobs around the Bay Area which requires her to be on the road a lot. Just recently she had to pay $1,000 deductible to fix her car that somebody hit. Thank God, she was not critically hurt in the accident. This simply added to her current stress and financial burdens.

Working as she does as an independent contractor means her pay checks are not on a specific schedule. It has become difficult to keep up with the creditors causing her to pay a lot of late fees. Unfortunately, she has fallen behind in many areas and now fears losing her house due to back property taxes and the like. Seems like one thing after another keeps occurring and every incident costs money. She can’t seem to catch up.

She has sought assistance from the Women’s Center for help with financial advice, resource information and economic assistance but the clock is ticking and her time to keep her house is dwindling down.
I am therefore asking those that love and care about Rhonda Crane and her future ban together with this Go Fund Me request and help her make it through this very difficult period in her life.

As the year ends I know many are making charitable donations in order to receive tax benefits. I can’t promise you that. I do however believe a donation to Rhonda’s Go Fund Me will yield you blessings that will be greater than you could ever imagine.

She has touched my life in ways that I can’t even put in words and I have watched her give of herself and her finances to the children under her care over the years’ time and time again.  Should you know of anyone that might be willing to help, please forward this to them. I pray that those that can, will lend this beautiful sister a hand she so desperately needs and keep her in your prayers!

Always In His Grip,
Audrey Spearman
