Pete Schaelchlin's Medical Expense

Many of you have known my parents as “Pastor Pete” and/or “Sister Margie.” The nicknames they’ve had since entering leadership in the church and names I’ve grown accustomed to. Whether you’re a former church member, school parent, friend, or acquaintance…they’ll always be known as such. For years, my parents served in the church and taught my siblings and myself to serve as well. Those of you who know them, know they are people truly after God’s own heart. Through the years, my Dad has suffered chronic knee pain as a result of a variety of activities to include physical labor. Simple tasks such as: getting up from the sofa, getting out of a car, or walking a flight of steps has been challenging for him. Recently, he underwent his first knee replacement. Thankfully, his recovery was quick and smooth. His new knee is stronger and less painful than before. The other knee replacement was scheduled for October of this year (2017). With an unexpected turn of events, my Dad lost his job of two years at the local Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Pennsylvania. A job assisting the local contractors and a job he loved. Carpentry and getting to know people were right up his alley at Lowe’s…or anywhere for that matter. As a result, he was forced to cancel his appointment due to lack of funds. With his job and social security, life for my parents was manageable. God has always been faithful and has always come through for my parents. As a family, we would like to make it possible to reschedule my Dad’s new knee replacement appointment. Naturally, he would be off his feet for a few months in order to fully recover with hopes of eventually finding a new job. With that said, the medical expenses to include basic necessities such as groceries, gas, electric bill, medicine, co-pays, etc. will be beyond their financial abilities. I would like to ask, if you feel led to donate any amount that would help them…we would be forever grateful. Although, they are assisting in their local church…they are not receiving an income. If you are unable to give a financial blessing…your prayers would be just as important. Thank you for your consideration as my parents and I love each and every one of you.
