Well, a lot of you have been praying for my family and I and offering your best wishes, which has been MUCH appriciated. I'd like you all to know that your prayers have been answered to some degree, and we have recieved some help from some unexpected places. For one, my father is giving us a car which will cost a LOT less to insure and burn a LOT less gas, but I gotta figure out how to get to Porterville to pick it up. Secondly, and far more unexpectedly, a member of the boards here (who has asked me not to give their name) asked me for my snail mail address. Having asked for some BOC business cards a while back, I just assumed that this member was a moderator or otherwise associated with the site and was asking FOR the site's use, so I replied with the address and told them that I've already recieved and been giving out the crads. A couple days later I recieved a letter, and encliosed was $200 cash!! Turned out that this person simply wanted to help out! They insisted that repayment was not wanted, and that they simply wanted to feel the Lord working through them in doing this. As things stand, we almost got a travel trailer from a friend for $250 per payday, which WOULD have saved us from being " homeless" and living in a tent, but the day we were going to get it I called around looking for the cheapest RV park to put it in and found out no one will let us move it in because it's a 1974 with only one bedroom. All the "Sam's Choice" rated places have an age limit for trailers and won't let anything "too old" park there because it would lower their rating for the tourism magazine ads, so EVERYONE PLEASE BOYCOTT SAM'S CHOUICE RATED PARKS AND RECREATION AREAS! The rest of the places I called simply said that we'd have to have a bigger trailer with a 2nd bedroom since we have more than 1 child. So we're back to the tent thing until we can save enough $$ to get into a real apartment again. We'll be trying to get all of our belongings, furniture, and such, into storage in Redding this week and getting the tent set up so we can stop burning gas money ASAP, so by the end of the week I'll likely be off line again for a while. Anyhow, I wanted to give everyone an update and would like to dedicate this thread to the person who showed such generosity and ask that everyone pray now for God to bless this person heavily in return for the Christian charity they have shown to my family and I, and I want everyone here to know exactly how strong the "brotherhood" can be when it is needed by a member. I would let you all know just who did this for us, but they have asked me not to.
