I want to first say Thank You to the few who continue to help us. Although it is only a hand-full who contribute, you have kept us afloat these past few months. I can't thank you all enough.
Currently though we are running into our first real hurdle. Money has all but run out, we have not been able to collect unemployment or foodstamps yet, and we have several utilities that are threatening to shut off our services (including electricity and internet). And although I have been working for the past few weeks, we are finding that it isn't so easy to get clients to pay for completed work (which many carpenters can probably relate to). It truly feels like the evil one is sabotaging every opportunity we are receiving to ensure we fail at what ever the Lord is leading us toward. And although I am learning how to trust the Lord more, I don't know if that means I should just sit back and let our utilities be shut off.
I truly do hate asking for help to you all, but with so few who do help, all I can do is present our situation with you all and just hope that the Lord will send us the help we need.
Thank you all so very much. If you cannot help, that's ok, please just say a prayer for us that the Lord's mission for us will be realized and that our daughter will return to her faith. Every prayer helps!!!
I guess at this point, everything is now in God's hands, and all I can do is trust that He'll pull us through this while teaching us what we need to learn. May the Lord bless you all.
God bless. Your Brother in Christ,

As you all know, we are in a big transition period. The Lord is leading us down a new path that requires a lot more trust in Him than I have ever given before. Normally in this situation I would be panicking trying to figure out how to make ends meet. But in the past few weeks I learned that He wants me to let go and just trust in Him in the new direction He is taking us.
Currently we are waiting on unemployment (which isn't much) as we attempt to get our new business off the ground that the Lord has led us to begin. But, an issue we are running into is that there is a large gap between my previous employment and any income the Lord will be granting us, and we still have bills that need to be paid. So, I'm simply presenting this to our readers and trusting the Lord that He will send us the help we need.
To all who have helped us, THANK YOU so very much!!! I can't tell you all how many times at the very moment we ran out of money or resources the Lord blessed us through you all with just enough to get through. Thank you all so very much.
May the Lord bless you and your loved ones. -JMJ-
