To paint the picture a little clearer for Australians reading here…the majority of homes in Canada are sold with their major appliances included. This is a rare thing for us Aussies, but not for Canadian homes. “Initially” we thought this was great.
We did a pre-purchase inspection and ALL our appliances were working FINE!! Upon moving in (only 2 weeks ago) EVERY major appliance has either failed completely or is malfunctioning in some manner. There is no warranty, there is no going back to the realtor. We have to find the funds ourselves to replace these items.
- Fridge/Freezer – Altering temperatures, icing up, thawing out.
- Washing Machine – Detergent is not rinsing out of the clothes!!
- Dryer – Low heat (which one uses to prevent shrinkage of clothes) does not work.
- Dishwasher – Pools water all over the kitchen floor!!
We don’t even know where to begin with which appliance to replace first. Financially we cannot do this on our own as the move from Australia has been hard on us already. Appliances was not something we had budgeted for at all.
HOW COULD YOU HELP?
Being in full-time missions has us doing this not on our own, but with a team of people. Some people pray for us, others give financially on a regular basis, while others give to one time projects.
This is where we ask that you would consider giving to help us meet our need for replacement appliances. Naturally we will focus on one at a time, but until we see God provide, we cannot say what appliance will be getting replaced first.
