Help Josh Stay in Seattle

I have spent the past 10 months working for Youth Missions International, a training organization focused on developing young Christian leaders who love to share Jesus. This has been an opportunity of a lifetime and I am so glad I was able to be a part of it for the time I was, but as I was living off of my fundraising, I am afraid it is no longer feasible or wise for me to continue in that capacity.

However, due to my love for the mission and hope I could work there full-time, I may have continued to work there past when it was financially feasible. I also am still recovering from a loss of income due to my hospital stay in December as well as my car breaking down last week.

Therefore, I am humbling myself and asking for some assistance financially to help me get back on my feet as I look for jobs again. I have had several interviews and have more scheduled, but I have nothing concrete as of today. 

If you could give anything at all, I would greatly appreciate it. 

The funds would go towards: 

- Rent & Utilities
- Food 
- Gas & Car Insurance (& Repair hopefully!) 
- Credit Card Payment
- Student Loans
- Cell Phone

I really just need a little help to get me over the hump right now and if I can't make these payments, then I'm afraid I'm going to have to leave Seattle. Seattle has become my home and the birthplace of some of the best relationships I've ever had and it would be extremely hard for me to leave, especially due to these circumstances.

Thank you for your consideration.
