We appreciate so many of you giving sacrificially. It is very encouraging to see God's people responding to our need. It has made an othewise difficult situation a little more bearable. Thank you!
We are currently trying to get health insurance in place for myself. To be added to Emely's plan would cost us over $500 per month. This is the slow season for carpet cleaning. We are working to add more customers, especially in our janitorial services. If you know anyone in the Triad that needs top-notch janitorial services, then just have them contact us. Also, We have checked out Cost Sharing ministries for health care. The problem with those are the preexisting conditions. Being diabetic can lead to many complications.
I am working every day to try to cover our expenses. These next four months will be very difficult unless we have a warmer than average winter. It is my hope that the winter will not be too bad this year for several reasons. One concern is the heating in the house will be more expensive if it is a bad winter. Th other problem is it kills business. Nobody wants to think about carpet cleaning if it is cold.
Continue to pray for Emely. She had the surgical biopsy on Thursday. We were told that the bill is going to be $4,500.00 plus the various other charges hospitals manage to find such as anathesiologist, lab and many other ancillory charges. We pray that we will have the money to pay for everything and still be able to manage our other bills. Your prayers for her will be very helpful!
I want to thank everyone who has given and especially to those who have taken time to pray! We know that God has this! Just keep us lifted up before God!
Kenny and Emely
Thank you to the people who have already touched our lives in such a wonderful way. The Lord blessed us with your friendship and we are certainly blessed with the outpouring of prayer support and with the blessings of monetary support you have provided thus far.
As many of you know, my wife and I are facing some real hurdles as we try to adjust to our situation. I know God has this. I know it in my heart, I just struggle with being a total control freak and I am dealing with things that are beyond my control. In my heart I know that God knows my prayers and he even knew my situation before I knew it, however, in my mind I am struggling with how I will pay bills without a job. Health insurance is going to cost $530 per month. That would be costly under normal circumstances but without a job it is prohibitive. The decision I have to make is to risk going without insurance or eat, take care of our current bills or juggle them to try to make money hold out as long as I can. I have to make decisions soon about insurance as my insurance will end on November 1. Some of this will be dictated by what is found in medical testing due to happen this week. Please continue to pray for me and Emely. She has a biopsy scheduled for November 15.
Your prayers will be helpful. Once again, thank you for both your prayers and your gifts to help us with our needs.

Thank you to those who have crontributed. So many of you have mentioned things that I did that, to me, was just part of my job at Piedmont. It is nice to know that you remember those things and that it means enough to you to mention those things. I always tried to serve God by serving the students, faculty and staff at Piedmont. I cherish the memory of each of you.
Pray for my wife as she has a biopsy coming up and for me as I will likely have a biopsy scheduled soon.
We will keep each of you in our prayers!
