Brother, can you spare a dime?

The Great Depression

I would like to ask for prayer. The archshrk household has been rocked yet again and are in need of much prayer. Many of you have already heard of the outrageous condo assessment that was just passed which requires us to pay a large amount of money ($3800) we don’t currently possess by the 15th of January and now Julia doesn’t have a job to go back to. Her mom’s company has not been doing well after the economy plummeted and our hope was that after her maternity leave was up (she was supposed to go back next week) things would pick back up and could go back 3/4 time. Well, she spoke with her this morning and things have picked up some, but not enough. We discussed unemployment over the phone and I have to admit that I’m scared.

Julia and I are counting the endless blessings our Lord God has gifted us with and we have much hope that this trial will bring great understanding, perseverance and appreciation for our God, but we are also human and have times of doubt and fear. Please be praying for wisdom, discernment as well as what we should do financially especially now that we have a baby that we also need to provide for.

Thank you all.

P.S. There is a payment option for the condo assessment. 20% down then 9 monthly payments (about $350/month)

  1. Oh, many prayers for you & family! What an OUTRAGEOUS condo assessment!! I don’t see how that could even be legal. That’s ridiculous…an assessment that large should surely be able to be split up monthly throughout the year. Geez.
