House and Health

A prayer request from Marie Grace:

I had posted the below prayer last week. And, I had hoped that the plumber who is to inspect under this house would have made an appointment with me by now, but so far have not heard from him. I am concerned that time is going to slip away from us. We urgently need a small digger to come to this property and rebore the drainage next to Dean’s bedroom where the water is turning the soil to mud. The whole house is incredibly damp right now.

Last week a person came to the house and inspected the tiles on the roof, and the water under the house. He found that the soil under the insulation mat was so wet you could pick it up and water come out of it. I have said this for at least a year. And the water under the house was everywhere.

The person also told me, that there is a firm here, that is certified to look after tile roofs, and that the tiles on this roof were made by a Levin company. So, that ends the nonsense I have lived under, (for 3 years) that the only firm New Zealand wide to do this work, is in Wellington. There is a perfectly good person here, who could safely do all of the inspections we have had, and write a report that has to be noted in the tenancy courts because of his qualifications in tile and tin roofs. He is to come and give a quote and a note for the report to be handed in.

I am really not impressed with all of this, and the severe impact on my health. I am now on 3 medications for my health. I have also had 4 emergency visits to the hospital. The last was yesterday, where my blood pressure was high, but not as high as it has been, hence the 3rd medication. All medications have come about due to the stress of the situation.

There already seems to be a hold-up. Please pray that the work goes ahead without delay. This is our 3rd winter with the exact issues which have caused my health to slide away. Please pray for a miracle intervention or better accommodation.

For tonight please pray Psalm 118:17 and Psalm 27:5-6 for me.

God bless everyone and thank you.
