An acquaintance of mine, Beth, lost everything in a house fire last night. The family is safe. They got out with just their pajamas. They have 4 young children. They even lost their cars.
Please say some prayers for Beth and her husband Jonathan and their 4 young children.
The mom's group has sprung into action and while this only happened not even 12 hours ago, we are taking collections for kids clothing and meals and setting up a bank account for donations. I'm so thankful to live in a town where we help others!!!
In the course of helping to organize I came across a great website you may wish to keep in mind for such emergencies - it's a website to coordinate volunteers.:
