My Situation

Followers of my sister Racheal’s blog will probably have already heard this, but my house burned down 2 days ago. Completely. Most of the front and back yard was spared – notably all the firewood (LOL) and the chicken – but otherwise we were left with just the clothes on our backs and a handful of things carried.

The view from a block away

Dad had to be treated for smoke inhalation and minor burns, but otherwise we all escaped unscathed.

Friends, family, neighbours and strangers have been very generous in donating and helping us get back on our feet. Our pastor is letting our large family stay with him and his family until we find a place. If anyone who’s helped is reading this: a truly heartfelt THANK YOU!!

It hasn’t been easy, but God/Yehovah has and is providing and looking out for us.

  1. I heard about this on your sister’s blog. Man, brother, I’m so sorry that happened! Our family is praying for you all. So glad you are all okay! That is very good of your Pastor. God is with you and He will bring healing and peace to your family. God bless you all!

  2. J-M, sorry your house burned down but grateful everyone got out safely and your pastor is putting up you and the whole family. The enemy of our souls did this and must repay double what he stole. May you and your family have a much bigger house for a reasonable price and everything get replaced with even better things. May the Lord bless and keep you, may his face shine upon you and grant you his peace. Praying that you all will be able to sleep well and that your dad recovers.
