Victim of fraud
« on: September 24, 2008, 11:26:42 PM »
Hi, everyone.  When it rains, it pours, I suppose.  I just found out that I was the victim of a fraud and now I'm out almost $9,000 which I have to find to pay back to my bank.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do, how I'm going to find the money, etc.  I know that the Lord provides but I'm worried about my immediate future. 

Your prayers are requested that I find peace in Jesus Christ in these times of great distress and that a solution presents itself.  Many thanks.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Thanks all for your prayers.  I'm happy to say that they have been answered through the gifts of my aunt and my uncle who have been more than generous to help me out of this situation.  Thank God for family, right?

Anyways, please join with me in your prayers of thanksgiving for these two great people, my Uncle Emil and my Aunt Joyce.  May God grant them many years and grant them their requests that are unto salvation and life everlasting. 

And, of course, thanks again for your thoughts and prayers.  I've never met any of you in person but you are also blessings from our Lord.
