The 24-hour stop the foreclosure challenge!
Dr. Brenda Kelly, author, pastor, Christian Radio host, and teacher of women's studies, has been fighting her spiritual battle against the enemy with dignity and perseverance, and with Luke chapter 18:1-8 planted firmly in her heart...
Seventeen years ago, she bought a 3 bedroom home situated on 2-acres overlooking a pond and some of God's most wonderful creations not far from the Merritt Island nature and wildlife preserve. She stayed home with her children, and worked in ministry and hosted her own radio programs sharing the message God placed on her heart each week for 12 years.
God also gave her a vision of building a sanctuary of sorts -- a place for spiritual retreats and ministerial workshops, using her land and it's serenity as a backdrop. The enemy struck and she was forced to put her vision on hold,
When her husband, pastor lost his job and remained out of work for three years, they depleted their reserves, and struggled making their mortgage payment for the first time in 14 years. But through persistence and trust, they eventually saw the light coming when he regained promising, lucrative employment; they began negotiating with their lender on a modification, or some sort of plan to catch up as they regained control of their finances.
Unfortunately, Mike Kelley passed away, before there was a chance to rebuild anything. Therefore she was left with no pension, no life insurance policies, only bills and less income.
She has tried several times to save her home, but Now through prayer and a lot of God's connections, we are attempting to show the world that What Jesus taught in Luke 18 is not in vain.
She has only 48 hours to show the bank that she can raise enough pledges to pay down her mortgage and save her home, her ministry and show the world what God can do!
We need at least $300,000 in pledge money!
Please help us! Pass this pledge sheet to everyone you know! Even if it a one dollar pledge or 1000, we just want to make an impact on her lender. (Do not send not send money at this time)
