    I lost my job late last year and have fallen behind on my mortgage payments. I owed four months of mortgage payments but on Friday the 13th I had saved enough to make up for at least one of them and made the payment online.

    in the mail that afternoon I got a notice that the lender has started foreclosure proceedings against me. They demand that I pay the back payments in full or I and my family of seven will lose our house.

    We've been praying that the Lord help us out of this hole that we're in which we find ourselves but so far, his answer to us seems to be negative.:tonofbricks:

    Please pray that we find our way out of this situation and that the Lord will bless us with His goodness.

    Thank You and God Bless:love2:

    I'll pray for you brother, that is a tough spot to be in.

    Just a few ideas. Could you get yourself about three part time or temp jobs and get yourself about eighty hours in? That and try and sell off anything and everything you don't have to keep. That might help hold it off and get current? If you do that, then try and go see the loan officer in person. I have found it you go to see a person, in person and explain to them the reason you got behind, and everything you are now doing to insure them of payment, they will be more flexible. Banks can't want to take on to many more houses in this market, so if they are deciding on which to foreclose on, and which to work with, you must give them enough reasons they want to choose you as someone to work with. One last idea would be to take on a boarder for some additional income. I know with a family it would not be the most desirable idea, but looking at the alternative, it may be worth considering.

    One thing to remember, in times of severe stress we often just mentally freeze, and in panic feel there are no options. Try and keep a clear head, get yourself a pad of paper, and write down every idea you can think of. Then make yourself a plan of attack to meet the challenge you face. With a clear focus you can make more headway then without one.

    Most importantly keep your faith in God strong. Your in my prayers.
