MANY HAVE ASKED HOW THEY CAN HELP

In light of the house fire, we have had many ask us how they can help. We don't know for sure yet what we're going to need and when we'll need it, but
here are a couple of things for right now:

*We have about 6 loads of laundry here at the hotel that need to be washed. I
have all the supplies.

*Places for the kids to go play or be entertained away from the hotel and the house once we begin working. My friendRhonda is taking my 3 youngest today.

*Homecooked meals that can easily be eaten in the hotel room.

*A couple of small to medium sized plastic bins with lids that the kids can
store their toys, art supplies, etc. at the hotel.

*Eventually we're going to need TONS of help as we sort thru our stuff to see
what has to be thrown out, what is fine, what needs to be cleaned, etc.

*PRAYER!!!! Pray that we continue to rest in God's peace, sleep well at
night,not give in to fear, to mourn in a healthy manner, and to LOVE!!! Love
each other and love those who God puts in our paths. Also, pray as we meet with
the insurance appraisers today that everything will go as it should. We're
really hoping that we can just start a new house from scratch. But whatever is
best. And pray that actiion will happen SOON so we can start the recovery
process.

Thanks and love to you all,
Elysa
