Gospel Preacher Has Become Disabled

I am Robbie McKinney and I am asking for your help for my sister, brother-in-law and their two boys. Justin Imel has been a gospel preacher for twenty years in churches of Christ and has been married to my sister for nineteen years. They have two sons (RJ 17 and Wil 14). Justin has recently had to resign his position as his physical condition has deteriorated to a debilitating state. My sister is a librarian in the school systems in Virginia but her income is not enough to sustain a family of four.

Justin's condition is called dystonia. (You can learn more about it here: https://www.dystonia-foundation.org)
It is debilitating at best and life threatening at worst. It is genetic in nature and there is no cure. His physicians have encouraged Justin to apply for disability and that paperwork has just been filed. He is being assured by those doctors that with his condition, he should be approved for disability benefits quickly.

We are asking for a total of $2,000/month and we are hoping this will only be for the next six months. Please help this family who have been in full-time service to God for the past twenty years.
