Down To The Wire
Last September, we got our Adoption Tax Credit.
Last September, Papa was laid off from his job.
We knew that if we budgeted very carefully,
the tax credit could last us about 5 months.
We never dreamed that Papa wouldn't be
able to find a job in 5 months' time.
Papa has been unemployed for 5 full months.
Today ... we have $1700 in the bank.
Friday ... our $1400 mortgage is due.
Our 2011 tax refund has been approved.
(It's not an especially large refund, due to
the fact that our income was quite small.)
However, we have not received it yet.
Please pray with us that we would receive our tax
refund before our other March bills are due.
Papa was able to substitute teach 9 times this month.
However, he won't get paid until the end of March.
Papa was supposed to start work at the refinery on Monday.
However, they "forgot" to do a new kind of background
check on him that they hadn't done last year.
So, he is awaiting the results of the background check
before he can start work. A bit frustrating, to say the least.
Papa was able to line up 4 days to substitute this week.
However, as I said earlier, he won't get paid for another month.
A month or so ago, I told you that it is
"Easy to TRUST GOD when you have $20,000 in the bank;
and not quite so easy when you only have $2,000."
... We are still TRUSTING.
... We are BELIEVING for His Provision.
... We have FAITH that the LORD is Our Provider.
... We are PRAYING that we will receive our
tax refund before our bills become due.
Thank you for your continued Prayers!!!
