WOW you have all been SO SO kind!! I was just BLOWN AWAY that we hit the goal I set when I thought we had to rent. I was just APPROVED for an FHA loan to BUY a house,!! I truly did not expect that to happen so I am joyfully surprised.
With an FHA loan though you have to have a down payment of 3% and the real estate agent told me that for the amount in approved for, that amount is $5,000.
I'll have my last month's rent from living here I'll use, of course, but I also have to pay movers so the bulk of that will be for that.
You all have been so generous and supportive and I thank God for those who have donated and/or prayed for us.
God bless you all!
I'm Helen and I live in Ontario, Ohio (next door to Mansfield) with my son Evan. Evan has autism and is non verbal. He has several limitations but is my pride and joy.
We lost his daddy 3 1/2 years ago to cancer ☹️ So I am a widow now ☹️
When we moved into the rental house Evan and I still live in, Greg was still alive. Now our landlady has decided to sell this house and we have to move.
It's just Evan and I now and we are both disabled. Evan due to his autism and me for several things most notably spinal stenosis with degenerative disc syndrome and arthritis in my back.
Add to that the fact that I recently suffered a fractured vertebrae (L1) while trying to pull a couch out of our garage to give away and clear the garage out of my husband's hoarding collection. I had back surgery for that this past December.
We are just barely getting by, so are struggling to come up with the funds for movers and for the next place we live for the deposit and last month's rent.
Could you help us?
Most of you probably know me from online. My Christ-centered blogs or Facebook groups, or you are a Facebook friend. So you've come to known our story over the years and you know I'm genuine.
I'm praying the Lord will use you to help a fellow brother and sister in Christ get moved and settled.
God bless you either way
Helen and Evan Bush
