Legally evicted. Three weeks to move.

Three months ago we discovered an illegal shared metering issue between our house and our neighbors. The bill should have been in our landlord
's name but instead, we have been paying for the neighbor's water pump (neither tenant knew about this). Three months have gone by without a word from our landlord, who went on vacation for weeks to avoid us. Our bill has been on hold. Today, the landlord's grandson delivered a letter at our door and made my husband read it- we are being evicted. And since it's more than fifteen days before our lease ends and we would have had to renew it, it's legal. I don't know where we will go or how we will afford it, but somehow we have to be in a new house in three weeks. If you pray, please do.
