As many of you know, Amy Gomes, a faithful reader in our community, mortgaged her home in order to finance the first ever school for handicapped children in Ukraine. That school is a great success (Hope Haven Ukraine) and a wonderful sign of God’s goodness in a world where these children are too often terribly neglected.
Amy made this decision because God’s hand was on her heart. Now she faces a balloon payment on this mortgage. She would like to refinance the home for another 10 years. Her business (she is the CEO of a pediatric therapy business for handicapped children in central Florida) is doing well. Her income is not in jeopardy. But the housing market in Florida is in shambles and the bank has refused to refinance her property.
So, I am turning to you. Perhaps you are a banker. Perhaps you have a connection to mortgage funding. Perhaps you are an investor. Perhaps you know someone who can help. Perhaps this is God’s opportunity for you to make a difference for these children and support Amy’s faithfulness.
Amy needs a $135,000 note at 8.5% over 10 years (or some combination like this) by October. This is NOT a request for charitable donations. This is strictly business – legal contracts, etc. – but it is God’s business too. Why should she lose her house for doing what God asked of her? Why would we stand by and not help her?
So, if you are able to assist, in any way, please let me know. This is what the At God’s Table community does. It helps wherever it can.
Thank you, one and all.
Amy is at firstname.lastname@example.org
You know where to find me.
