Warm greetings, everyone! I have come to request your financial assistance out of a very genuine need for help; otherwise, I assure you, I would not have been doing this at all. I am at a point in my life where I am trapped between a rock and a hard place. A little over three years ago, I lost my job as a substitute teacher. Nearly four years before that , I bought a brand new Honda Civic, since the nature of my job required that I have a reliable car to go to the various schools to do my assignments on a daily basis. When I lost my job, I could no longer afford to make the payments on the car, for which reason it was repossessed by the bank and sold. However, the amount realized from the sale of the vehicle was not sufficient to cover the total balance due on it. As a result, I was left with a balance of more than $6000.00 to pay.
I made a payment arrangement later with the debt collectors to pay $50.00 a month, which was all I could really afford to pay, since I did not have the ability, under my new circumstances, to do better. I had been trying my best under very difficult circumstances to keep up with the payments as best as I could. But I am no longer able to do so because I have no employment at the moment. It has been a real stress on me trying to get rid of this debt in order to have a clean slate and a fresh start. To date, I still owe about $5,300.00. There is nothing more that I want to do than to get rid of this debt once and for all.
Next, I have been without a wife for more than eight years now, since my divorce in 2007. I met a wonderful lady five years ago, and we have been in this long-distance relationship ever since. She lives in Panama. I proposed and she accepted. I look forward to traveling to Panama to meet her family and to marry her soon. I really want this wedding to be a special one for her because it will be her very first , since she has never before been married. I am not looking for anything showy or extravagant - just something to express my honor and appreciation to my bride-to-be for accepting me as I am and loving me so unconditionally. I will greatly appreciate any donations from anyone who feels my heart's cry and is willing to help me finance a new beginning with a new wife. I do not want to go into this new marriage with any financial baggage such as a $5,000.00 debt from a repossessed car hanging over my head. Such things cause unnecessary problems in a marriage. If anything, I do not ever want to give place to anything that will undermine my marriage. My past divorce, though honestly not my fault, and the misery I have had to suffer over the past eight years without a wife have taught me enough.
As you prayerfully consider my appeal for help, please also consider basic things that a new couple starting a new life together would need. By the way, I still don't own a car since my Honda was repossessed. I, therefore, pray that anyone reading this will find it in his or her heart to believe that this is a genuine, God-fearing cry for help, and nothing more. May I thank you all very much for taking the time to read my story, and for reaching out to me in my time of need. God bless you all!
