A Home of Our Own

The short story is that we returned to Alaska after traveling to help family out. We felt God calling us home and it was time. There were bumps along the way. Five months of homelessness and being separated while my husband commercial fished to make money to get into a home was hard, but we survived. We finally found a place that was the only home available at the end of October, nearing winter. Unfortunately, the landlady took advantage of our desperation and lied about the house we rent now. It is NOT efficient, and costs $600/mo in fuel in the winter months. There are structural problems with the house that are hazardous to our health, especially our children. We don't have any way of getting out because the cost of utilities and the rent (which was increased) cost approx. 70% of our income. There is no way to save in order to escape, but we worked hard and now have a home of our own within our sites. We just need the earnest money to secure the home while the rest of the loan process finalizes. We're halfway there and are now asking, if anyone can help out, would you be willing to donate? If you feel God's tug at your heart to help, we sure would be grateful. You can find our fundraiser here:

The sooner we can get out of the current housing situation we're in, the healthier we'll be. Thank you in advance for prayers and/or donations you feel led to provide.
