Moving my ministry back to the USA

I don't expect thousands of donations --- prove me wrong and surprise me if you wish! This is here to collect any kind gift towards my move hoping someone who truly appreciates my work decides to give it a big push.  It is a long shot but miracles happen! 

I am moving my ministry back to the US
I need to safely move mainly my considerable library and a few personal possessions.
It may take from 6 to 12 months to actually move but I hope I can do it ASAP. I need to be there as early as possible during 2019.  Ideally in late August at the latest.

The funds will be used to pay part of:
(1) the move -- cost is approximately equivalent to moving the contents of a small apartment from NYC to LA.
(2) airplane ticket or a cargo ship if I can negotiate a cargo+passenger good deal.
(3) Settling in any inexpensive mountain town in Appalachia ---  rental of an inexpensive home.
(4) Pay monthly expenses until book sales and other revenues are enough to cover the bills.

The funds will remain unused until half the total is reached: $30,000 US  
The goal is to keep me alive until I finish my next four books or longer. That is about 18 to 24 months but God only knows. 

The reason I need to move: Buenos Aires is OK for me to live ---I admit it is a bit dangerous--- but I need to do research that requires sending and receiving books and documents from various countries, and do some traveling. Unfortunately the strict custom restrictions here, and the slow and unreliable mail service make that quite impractical.  For instance: sending and receiving samplers of books published takes many hours of standing in line at customs. It also requires obtaining several forms at various government offices that could take days of processing and hundreds of dollars in fees. No way.

I have plans to publish 4 to 6 titles that will be out in English, Spanish, and Portuguese. Since the titles I have published are selling better every month, I have reasonable hopes that the new titles will sell very well. 

I am already very grateful to all those who help me finance this move.

I will be sending lifetime free copies  of every book I publish in English (one per title) to those who contribute $500 or more.
My readers have supported me 100% during my exile in BA. I wish I could find words to thank all of them for their kindness but all I can say is that I keep you in my prayers and I do not forget even the smallest of those gifts. You have become my family now that I don't have any to speak of.  I work for all of you. I thank Jesus and Mary everyday for my readers and friends. I have trusted this mission to St Joseph. He will get me there if that is God's will.

My heartfelt thanks in advance to all of you for all your help past, present and future.

God bless you!

If you can't contribute money that's fine. I only ask you pray the following up to nine times for this intention.

Morning Prayer to St. Joseph known to be over 1,900 years old.
Please pray it for this intention --and add your own intentions-- once every morning for nine days.

Oh St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. Oh St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your divine son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, our Lord; so that having engaged here below your heavenly power I may offer my thanksgiving and homage to the most loving of fathers. Oh St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while he reposes near your heart. Press him in my name and kiss his fine head for me, and ask him to return the kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, patron of departing souls, pray for us.
