Well, i'm not really sure how to begin here. I have certainly had to reach out to friends at times for help, but never on so large or public a scale. I have at times reached out to get help for others. I am now in a horrible crisis and at a crossroads. I have spent most of my life in one ministry or another, inculding Pastoring 3 churches and helping start another. I have had many job experiences and spent the last 4 years doing maintenance and carpentry, and small building demolition. Aproximately 4 1/2 years ago I collapsed, and have developed quite a laundy list of health issues, making work hard but not impossible. I have been convinced finally to file for disability, but I still need to take care of myself until that comes through. To make matters worse, unfortunate marriage problems have left me with no vehicle to work from. I find getting to jobs almost impossible and can't get to doctors and such, without a vehicle. The resources I have are exhausted and I need your help. Help to be able to continue working, and help to continue on to the next chapter in ministry that the Lord has for me. I suppose that I should have seen this coming and prepared, but I didn't I was totally blindsided. I understand what Paul meant about gaurding yourself. When I have exhaused myself taking care of others I myself have become a castaway. We all screw up I guess ! Would you consider doing what you can to help me get into a vehicle to do what I need to be doing. Thank You and God Bless !!!
