Unexpected Dental Work (updated Dec. 2019)   Even though we took the kids to the dentist regularly in Chile, the dentists there didn’t seem to see what the dentists here see.  Tomas has had to have his molar pulled and spacer put in, and he as more procedures to try to save two other molars.  Kelcy will be having cavities filled and will be getting her tongue tie removed, and Jared & Naldy have yet to be looked at.   As of now the bill will be over $3000, of which we do not have dental insurance and could go as as high as $8000.  A surprising and unexpected expense that we are trusting the Lord to provide for.  So far we have received some financial help from various churches and people covering the 3000 of the 4000 it cost to fix the kids teeth, they are all fixed.  Now its the adults turn to see how our teeth are.  Thanks for all those who are helping and continue to lift this up in prayer.

  1.  House – We have temporarily suspended our search for a house until our return from furlough in January 2020.  The housing cost here has skyrocketed in the last 10 years making it very difficult to locate a house in a decent part of city and meeting our schooling and ministry needs.  Housing here in Santiago is more expensive than all but 7 cities in the USA (NY, San Fran, LA, Chicago, Honolulu, Washington, and Miami according to https://mobilityexchange.mercer.com/Insights/cost-of-living-rankings).  We have found out that no banks will approve a mortgage for us since our salary comes from outside of Chile.   We are currently living with Naldy’s Parents on the second floor and would like to buy a house upon our return from furlough in 2020 unless God provides miraculously before then.  Would you pray we would find a house in God’s timing and God’s place?  Would you pray for Gods provision since we will need to save up a large amount of money for a down-payment, since no bank here in Chile will give us a mortgage? We are praising God in advance for whatever He provides.  If you would like to help with this, you can donate directly towards our housing here gf.me/u/vysm3a (it is a tax-deductible donation through a non-profit and goes through our sending church)

  2.  Bank – as stated above it is next to impossible for us to get a mortgage at any back in Chile because of circumstance, in fact, in order to be approved for a mortgage one must get a checking account first at the same bank here, without it one cannot get that mortgage (which we cannot obtain even if we get a checking account, so we have been told)   Would you pray for a checking account approval with a bank that might give us a good rate for a mortgage?  Even though we have been told we cannot get a mortgage, things always could change.   It would be cheaper to buy a house outright, cash, but that is very unrealistic for us unless we partner with a plurality of owners and go all in with them.  There are many houses up for auction that are less than half the cost of similar houses but one must pay the bill 100% upfront with cash which we don’t have, making us dependent on finding a bank and getting a housing loan or saving up and depositing in a checking account here.

  3. Dish Washer – it has become very hard to keep up with all the dishes because of having so many people over so many times.  A dishwasher would help tremendously (we do not have one), although our current housing situation doesn’t allow, we hope to be able to get one when we buy a house.  Would you pray for Gods provision for a dishwasher?

  4. Storage Container (This is also on the ministry camp needs list) – storage units here are much more expensive than in the USA, 3 or 4 times more expensive.  We would like to buy a container that doubles as an office or cabin in the summer time.  Of course if our future house had enough yard space we could build a shed and store the things there, but that might be out of our price range to buy a property with that kind of space and typically the housing is smaller here. Would you pray for God to provide storage space?

  5. Minivan or Large SUV – UPDATE:  We found a deal too good to pass up, so we purchased a new vehicle on our credit card.  The Lord provided a 2007 Suburban at a miraculous price.  Please pray that we can sell our personal car to help pay for this Suburban!  Pray that we can pay off the credit card!

  6. Personal Monthly Support – We are currently under-supported by $1790 monthly.   Would you pray for God to lead us to people, families, churches and organizations that will support us financially on a monthly basis?  Maybe you know of a friend, organization or church that you think would be a good fit and can recommend us to them?  We absolutely love sharing about all God is doing here!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read about our financial needs, please never forget to pray for us.  The financial aspect is our physical aspect of providing for and living in Chile as a family, we have many other needs that we share through prayer requests.  Would you consider praying on a consistent basis for us by signing up for our prayer letter?   You can do that HERE.  

Thanks again and God bless you richly.
