RE: Warrant in Debt – Norman Harry Teague

Dear Mr. D’Amato:

I received the Warrant in Debt relating to my father, Norman H. Teague, for an apparent fender bender that occurred in 2008, shortly before he was placed in a nursing home in Aroda, Virginia. Today, he has very limited communication abilities and does not have the ability to respond to this notice.

Dad’s only source of income is a very small Social Security check that goes directly to the nursing home which is not even enough to cover the cost of his care. The balance of his care is paid by the State of Virginia via their Medicaid program for the poor. Mom also resides at the same nursing home under similar financial circumstances, has advanced Alzheimers, and no longer knows her husband or family.

My parents dedicated their entire lives to helping others. Dad was raised in a Christian orphanage (the Mennonite Children’s Home in Kansas City) where his mother dropped him off in the mid-1930’s (along with his brother and sister) at the age of 8. Caretakers loved him and introduced him to Jesus. From that time forward, Dad dedicated his life to helping others. My parents provided me a Christian home and showed me what the true love of Jesus means. Dad became a preacher and evangelist and served many churches, prisons, and gospel missions during his career. His daily life was consumed by telling others the story of God’s love for them. He would leave gospel tracts where ever he went so the recipient might know how much Jesus loves them.

In short, Dad does not have the means to pay this $284 judgment that is being filed against him on October 21, 2011. But I believe that Dad would find a story here. He would want to pay a debt that he owes regardless of the fact he does not have the ability to do so. That’s what Jesus did for us on the cross. He paid our debts for us so that we can have eternal life.

Enclosed is payment for my Dad’s debt in the amount of $284.00. My prayer is that the Plaintiff will receive this payment, along with this letter, to demonstrate that every life situation presents an opportunity to witness.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Blessings to you today,

Carole Schumacher

Daughter of Norman H. Teague
