I am Michael Levy, I am a 34 year old father of 3 beautiful children.
I am currently out of work, as my current work has not paid me in the last two months, because they went bankrupt, while this may be the worst of things for my family, I have been very blessed to have received work overseas (Mississippi) for 9 months as 'n mechanical worker on a farm and I hope I can continue working there every year till I can raise enough funds to provide a more sustainable income for my family.
It was not an easy decision as I will be 9 months away from my children and my wife, leaving her to cope with everything while working, homeschooling my middle daughter and getting my other two to school and school-activities and back, not to mention my role she would have to fill at home whilst have her own role as a mom, but we are willing to do what ever it takes to secure a future for our children.
We have sold our car and have half the plain tickets, consulate's money and two weeks living money for me while I am working for my first pay check, saved after settling the bank.
We really had it though these couple of months trying to make ends meet (which did not happen by a long shot), but we have been keeping our faith and our outcome is just this one door away!
With this money I will be able to pay my plane tickets and have the funds to live while I am working till I can receive my first pay check.
I do believe in miracles and I know that this to shall pass, we just need a little help to get us through.
Me and my family have been through a lot of deep waters in the past, from loosing everything to building it up again and although we are busy falling again we are pushing on and trying every possible thing to get me overseas to have a better work opportunity to support my family...
I thank everyone who is reading this letter, who is contributing to our future in advance, the words ' thank you ' will never describe the deep emotion of gratitude it brings forth in me as a man, a husband and a father to have the opportunity to have a work again to provide as a man should for his family.
We regret that we can not offer a reward in exchange for donations but we are truly grateful for every donations we can get.
I need to be at the consulate in Cape Town on 6 March 2019 and will need to fly by to 15th more or less, it will need to be booked once I receive my Visum.
