Unexpected Expenses

I would like to ask you to pray for some unexpected expenses that have come up, some through our own mistakes or oversights and others that could not have been avoided.

1. Tax for Printer ($500/£315).  We are making the final payment for our new printer this month.  Unfortunately, when we figured the price of the printer, we forgot to include VAT (Value Added Tax) of %17.5 here in the UK.  The Lord provided all the money for the printer itself, but we still need the final $500 to pay for the VAT.

2. Heating Oil Costs ($940/£600). We normally spend about $470/£300 per month on heating oil for our home, the church, and Sam’s apartment.  Last month due to the unusually cold weather, our heating costs were triple their normal cost.  We had to spend an extra $940/£600 on heating costs last month, because of weather that was the coldest ever recorded in Northern Ireland.

3. Car Accident ($550/£350).  Last month while driving, I accidentally backed into another car.  The damage came out to £350, so we had to pay for the accident this month.

Due to these unexpected expenses, we are  short about $2000 this month.  Would you please pray for God to provide?  If you would like to help out with these needs, you can send your check to Macedonia World Baptist Missions (PO Box 519, Braselton, GA 30517) and mark your gift “Travis Snode”.  Thank you so much for your faithful prayers and support.  May God richly bless you for all you do.
