Well, hello Brother and Sisters. I sure do need your prayers right now.
Some of you may or may not know that my house was damaged during Hurricane Florence. I felt really blessed that we could live there, as many people lost everything
We have been patiently waiting to come up on one of the 20 plus contractor lists that we are on for repairs. We had planned on being slightly inconvenienced by living in a room above a workshop we have, and but still be able to use the bathroom, and kitchen while the work was being completed. Should have taken about 3 weeks.
Here is where I need prayers.
The contractor arrived bright and early today and as they started pulling down walls we found out that our house is going to have to be completely gutted due to mold.
The cost will be way more than the value of our home, and therefore more than the insurance will pay.
We live at the beach, and since it is summer there are no rentals that are for only a few months. It’s an annual lease or nothing. Insurance will only pay for the amount of months the repairs will take.
Hotels are full because, well, it is summertime at the beach.
We could just take the insurance check, and knock down the house and start over BUT we had already had the roof repaired(because they can’t repair the inside until the roof is repaired) and the foundation repaired. Which was fine because we couldn’t get a contractor until now anyway.
So, if we just tear down, we will be short that huge amount not to mention that is money that was thrown away.
We are staying at the only place in the county that has rooms. It is the only place that has rooms for a reason. It is affectionately call the “drug Den”
So, we are displaced which is just, a nice way of saying homeless.
I could go on and on but I will spare you the rest.
We just need your prayers. It is the only thing that is going to solve our issue right now.
I ask the LORD to bless every one who is reading this and thank Him for hearing and answering our prayers.
