Stephen and Stephanie Support

As some of you may know by now Stephen and I have had a rough couple of months. We received a 30 day notice on a house I had lived in for over 3 years while struggling to find full time and stable employment for several months. We both found great jobs, but struggled to find a home, which left us homeless. By the grace of God and wonderful friends and family, we have had a roof over our heads. Staying at friends houses or motels, we were just starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel when Stephen got several diabetic ulcers on the bottom of his foot which became very septic. Unfortunately they had to amputate his leg below his knee. We are now faced with no safe, clean home to start his rehabilitation, no transportation to get him to and from physical therapy and doctors appointments and medical bills stacking up with just my income until his disability kicks in. We are not ones to ask for help, but we are in a dire situation. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the continued prayers, love and any support you may be able to assist us with during this difficult time. Stephen is the strongest most loving man I know. I just want him healthy, safe and smiling again like the picture above.
