Please help a Christian asylum seeker in need.
My name is Lam Dang (Sam as Christian name). I am sorry that I have to ask for your help. I have never done this before but I had nowhere to turn to.
I am from Vietnam and came to US through work visa. I was an atheist approximately 4 years ago.
Around June 2016, Lord Jesus Christ revealed to me He is God and I have been following Him since then. Hallelujah. I thank God for His abundant mercy to even save me.
However, since my conversion, I face the fear of persecution if I return home because of the government policy to restrict religion freedom, especially for Christians. You can check on https://www.opendoorsusa.org/christian-persecution/world-watch-list/
I applied for asylum seeker but US policy did not allow pending applicant to work within 150 days of application.
I had a job through work visa but because I left the job I cannot work due to restriction period and have no way to earn an income.
Today I am asking your help to pay my rent in November 2017 ($1600). I have already paid for December 2017 and January 2018. The rent in New York is extremely expensive and I am sorry about that. I have signed this contract in February 2017 without knowing about this calamity.
After January 2018, I would be allowed to work so I can afford my staying further. I also have to pay my credit card debt $1390.60 that I used for food and other things and I now had no means to pay it off.
Hence, I need a total of 2,990.6 dollars to get by with my situation.
I know it sounds like a lot of money but any amount will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your generosity.
I couldn’t imagine there is such community like this to help others. Thank you for your good hearts.
The Lord will be with you and bless you bountifully.
And if you don’t know about Him, please learn and accept Him today. He is the God of universe and He will protect you. Amen
