User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeI want to personally thank you for funding my request for a mortgage payment. I have been out of work for over three (3) months now, and since then I have had four (4) more surgeries on my left eye (six in all). This has been a difficult moment for me as I have not been able to work. I thank God for touching your heart and allowing you to be a blessing to me. You have certainly took the load off my shoulders. Thank you for your generous donation and because of the concerns for others, we pray God grant you blessing and favors in the months and years to come.

Retina Tear Eye Surgery, Please Help With Mortgage While Out of Work Recovering

My Story:

I am a married husband to my wife of 32 years. I have been working on the same job for more than 22 years. I am a driver for a vending company. I spend my day driving and filling vending machines at various sites. I am also a minister who pastors a new ministry that has been active for 3 years. I do not collect any salary from the ministry at this time. I enjoy reading, singing, and spending time with family, friends, and my three grandchildren.

In the past three weeks I have had 2 eye surgeries for retina tears in my left eye which has caused me to be out of work for this entire month. I am paid on commission. Because of the unexpected condition that occurred with my eyes, I cannot return to work until the end of March 2019. Although, I have health insurance, there are deductibles that have to be met and co-payments that have to be paid up front. I have used up all of my vacation time for this year and my employer does offer paid sick leave. I am paid on a commission basis, so if I'm not able to work, I will not get paid. I need Modest Needs help with our mortgage payment.

Your help will allow us to stay a float with the upcoming monthly expenses that we will incur. This funding will help us maintain our household responsibilities and it will cause us to save more for when unexpected situations arise we will be emotionally and financially prepared. Thank you.
