Our CHURCH and BOXING GYM NEED YOUR HELP!!!

Donation protected
Need God to intervene or it's over!!! I'm gonna leave this here for EVERYONE to read....Some of you will be HAPPY some will be heart broken for us. Some of you will not care at all. Well we most likely will be shutting down Beautiful Feet Ministry and Youngstown Salem Boxing Gym......WHY? Because back in September (we) my wife and I and our family got back to back devastating news( My wife dad was found dead in his home NO ONE till this day knows why he passed or how he passed. All we know his back door was open his dogs gone and house was ran through all kinds of things missing. When we got the news my wife ( Alecia ) was hurt really bad it took toll on here because her and her dad were very close so my wife stopped going to school and quit working for a few months to get her emotions back to normal it really drained her and her family. So during this same time less than month later my brother Ricco was shot and killed and I went crazy in my mind my heart was pulled out my chest and stomped on...so I'm dealing with my wife helping her and now my brother gets shot killed it was not good in our home things began to fall apart I wanted to die I hated everyone I went in state of depression I stopped eating I stayed in my room for days and days I quit my job I blocked everyone out my life I was angry full of hurt and couldn't pray didn't wanna hear no one advice I was gone emotionally. My brother Ricco and I were close he was like my best friend and he was gone died tragically. So for like 4 months we held on by the grace of God my children and my spiritual leaders Bishop Alvin J McCoy and Phillip Johnson never gave up on my wife and I they all held us up high they did not let us drown they did everything to help us get back to normal. Well at that time we fell behind on bills at our home and church and gym. Four months behind so now we have outstanding past due balance owed to BELIEVERS CHURCH because they own our building we rent. They gave us till May 15 to come up with $6000 plus May rent 2,800 so 8,800 and then by June 15 another $6000 and 2,800 so 8,800. We pay 2,800 a month rent. We fell behind 4 months End of Sept....Oct Nov Dec Jan we paid Feb March April and we have 2,800 for May but we do not have $6000 and change by May 15 they actually had attorney send us letter to get the back money and gave us this option or we have to leave property. I'm working got good job my wife working got good job. And she just graduated nursing school so she will be working at better job soon. We do have congregation at church we have some tithe payers but we have some that don't pay at all ( it's a heart issue and faith issue that they have with God) The gym brings in $700 month. It's sad that our gym helps keep church open when our church should be keeping gym open but it's not how people see the mission statement or our vision. So now we have to shut down everything and put in storage. My wife and I and our children put our all our hearts soul we have sacrificed so much we put everything in the last 5 years into ministering and loving people and seeing souls saved. I've baptized over 400 people we have seen lives change from gym to the church. We are so broken again and hurting because we don't wanna close the doors we wanna keep going but we don't have the money to pay them by 15th of May and again in June we tried calling writing letter with payment plans the board at believers church denied it. So the worse is happening. I know we will still have church we can have church at pArk anywhere but the gym is gonna hurt us because we have so many souls a team a family we have become so close with to just shut down and leave these families is devastating to us. We tried grants they will take to long. We can afford the 2,800 but can't get caught up that fast there no way unless someone helps. We were trying to get 20 people to give $300 that will be for May and then we will have to come up with same for June. Idk what else to do I guess I'm asking for help in my own little way. We did have 1 Pastor from Florida the other night reach out idk him at all by the way he gave $1000 out of no where that went into this month rent 2,800 Thank you Pastor . To keep doors open running we need everyone help this is where we will find out who loves us or not this is where we will find out who believes in our vision or not. This message will separate some of you and some will be mad I'm asking for help but Idc because I know some of you will help and others will just set back let doors close because you were never for us. But I'm trusting God to prevail! And I'll say this: MY FAMILY AND I WILL NOT FORGET THOSE WHO DID SACRIFICE AND GIVE AND HELP WE WILL NOT FORGET YOU AND IN NEAR FUTURE WE WILL REMEMBER YOU. Hope you understand and know what I'm saying. ❤️
