Please say a prayer for a clustermate of mine. She's experiencing severe financial distress, but has put on a brave face. I wouldn't know about her problems if another consultant hadn't been on the phone with her when the power company came to shut her power off. She needs prayers not only to help her through this specific situation, but also for clarity when prioritizing her spending. With this going on, I'm shocked that she's still planning to attend conference - and she didn't earn half price or free registration, nor did she have registration funds set aside in conference club. She's going to need to hire a 24-hour sitter for that week, plus hotel, meals, etc. So conference will be a large financial outlay for her.
