Gospel Preacher Has Become Disabled

$2,385 of $12,000 goal

Raised by 33 people in 38 months
I am Robbie McKinney and I am asking for your help for my sister, brother-in-law and their two boys. Justin Imel has been a gospel preacher for twenty years in churches of Christ and has been married to my sister for nineteen years. They have two sons (RJ 17 and Wil 14). Justin has recently had to resign his position as his physical condition has deteriorated to a debilitating state. My sister is a librarian in the school systems in Virginia but her income is not enough to sustain a family of four.

Justin's condition is called dystonia. (You can learn more about it here: https://www.dystonia-foundation.org)
It is debilitating at best and life threatening at worst. It is genetic in nature and there is no cure. His physicians have encouraged Justin to apply for disability and that paperwork has just been filed. He is being assured by those doctors that with his condition, he should be approved for disability benefits quickly.

We are asking for a total of $2,000/month and we are hoping this will only be for the next six months. Please help this family who have been in full-time service to God for the past twenty years.

Thank you to everyone who donated last month! Although we raised $860 on here, some sent direct checks to Justin and Tammy. All told, we raised $1,760 for the month including from within our family. This is a huge help and is appreciated so much.

As you all know, bills have a way of showing up every month and we have just started over. Any amount you can share will help and will be appreciated. In the words of my old sales manager, "Every tater counts!"

Again, thank you for your help!

Thank you to all who have helped! Some of you have said with your donation, "It's not much, but..." We don't see it that way at all. We appreciate all of you. My thinking when I set this up was that I couldn't do all but I remembered the old adage that says many hands make light work. Thank you so much for helping in the past and any future help.
