UPDATE: Please Help The Lindsey's Immediate Need

37931012_1553215293652287_r.jpegHello Family & Friends:
NEW UPDATE...(4/8/19).  I started this GO Fund me page a few weeks ago and as of today, we have lowered our goal again.  This has been very tough for me to reach out and ask for financial help but we are needing funds immediately.  ASAP.  A few weeks ago my husband Jeff was forced to take medical leave from his job due to an illness he is dealing with.   It is very apparent that he may not be able to return to work any time soon, and is under the care of a Specialist to find out what is causing his health issues.  I had been noticing  some changes in his health for some time, but was unaware that his poor health was effecting his work performance, so you can imagine the stress I'm going through when he told me that he was going on immediate Medical Leave from work and then told me it is with NO PAY.  Friday, March 22, 2019  was his last pay check.  Without Jeff's income, I honestly didn't think I could do it with just my income.  God has shown me otherwise.  I am very blessed to work and have an income coming in.  Everyone that knows me, knows I am a very frugal person, and I have always strived to live a simple life.   Jeff and I have been working hard the past several years on a plan to eliminate some of our debt, and that meant all of our credit card debt, and I am proud to say we did.  We were so thrilled when all we had now was our regular, necessary bills (mortgage, utilities, phones, car insurance, home owners insurance, etc.).   Everything was going great, and then 2 years ago, Jeff received a work injury to his ankle, that continued to progress with complications and when he did finally return to work, it was only part-time.  2018 was a very tough year for us financially.  While we were still adjusting to only receiving half of what Jeff had been making, both our car transmissions went out within 4 months apart.  Then we had some additional car issues that we incurred some more unexpected debt, and then on top of all that, we were forced to take some money from our Property Tax Savings.  We were never able to recover our savings, so that resulted in us being short by $1,000.00 on our 2018 Property taxes, so we borrowed the money and added it to our Mortgage payment.   This is where I need your help.  I am pleased to say God has provided not only donations through this Go Fund me page, but some cash donations that is allowing us to lower our fundraising goal AGAIN.  God has been so faithful and we have been so truly Blessed to have raised enough money to pay off my daughters car.  Now we just need to find a way to pay off the  Loan for all the Car Repairs (new balance:  $7,100.05) .   With lots of prayer, we have dropped our Fund raising goal to EXACTLY the payoff amount needed to pay off the Car repair loan.  I am putting all the other expenses in Gods hands and I know he will be faithful and will provide the funds to pay those other expenses.  Again, NOTHING IS TOO BIG FOR  GOD and I truly believe that he will show me how to take care of the medical expenses we have incurred..  I have seen God Move Mountains in 4 days, in the last week, regarding getting my husband in quickly for treatment and assessment.  Yes, I said 4 days, where "logically" the doors that opened, should have taken weeks to get done.    This is very hard for me to ask for help, and if you are not able to donate anything, that is ok, please pray. I am a Christian. I am a Believer in Prayer.  I love Jesus Christ and it is my relationship with Christ that is helping me stay strong and know that God will provide for our needs. I am not asking for any more than the debt I am wanting to eliminate.   I can't wait to  provide for my family and relieve this undo stress, not only off of my husband, but the stress of that "scared little girl inside of me".  God has Blessed me with a wonderful family and the most wonderful extended work family and friends that anyone could ever ask for.     Whatever amount is raised to help us, I Give all The Glory to God.   If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ and have questions about having a relationship with Christ, I urge you to come have a cup of coffee with me sometime (even if it's on the phone or over Facebook).   Please pray for Jeff's health, and that we find some answers somewhere in all of these test that are taking place in the next few weeks.  Pray for us, as the Short Term Disability is still pending as of today (4/8/19).  They need a diagnoses before Jeff can be approved or not approved.    We are praying that Aetna will get the information this week that they are needing to get this rolling., but again this is in Gods hands .   And finally, Pray, that God continues to give me more hours during the day with Peace, and less hours Worrying.   You are welcome to text me anytime through messenger.  I would love that.  Thank you and God Bless.
