Help Nate Get Back to the USA!

Nate Awdykowyz moved to China last May to start a new job venture.  It has turned out to be a lot of what he didn't hope for, and little to stay positive about.  One week before he moved, his car was stolen from in front of his Orange County (CA) home, then crashed.  Personal possessions were lost in the theft as well.  Because of the (repaired) damage to the car, he has been unable to sell it and is still making payments on it that he didn't expect on his China salary.  Money has been extremely tight.  He got a puppy he named Nando as a companion so he isn't alone in a very foreign place.  Nando has received the necessary shots to enter the US, but he cannot come here until at least January 24, 2018.  Then he cannot travel until the weather is more moderate.  

Nate was not able to obtain a work visa for China and must travel to Hong Kong every 60 days, resulting in increased expenses.  Evidently Chinese banks don't talk to banks in the US, and transferring money is so far impossible.  If he buys the necessary tickets to return home, he won't have the money to make his car payments.  If he pays on his car, he will continue to be stuck in China.  Frustration mounts on many levels, and he has a strong desire to come back home.  It seems like every direction he turns is a Catch 22, and he can't make headway.  

Your contribution to help Nate return to the US would be a great encouragement to him as he sees no other solution on the horizon.  Whatever you can give will bless him and will be used toward Nate's (and Nando's!) travel expenses  and transition to California.

God bless!
