Hello Friends and Family,

I am personally writing to you to express a great need of a family that is near and dear to my heart.  Let me start by telling you a little about this precious family.  I have lived next door to Amber and John for the last 5 years, and in that time our families have become close.  Amber has provided swim lessons to our children, John has helped us change the breaks on our car, and our kids have played slip and slide in the front yard together on hot summer days.  Amber is a teacher’s aide for special needs children at a nearby elementary school, and has told me of her great passion for these “special” kids many times.  John recently returned from serving his country in Iraq, where he missed the birth of his youngest child, a precious blonde haired, blue eyed little girl.  He has been back for about a year now and has returned as a strong loving father and a provider for his family.  They have three children, a little girl, who I mentioned earlier, and two boys.  One responsible 14years old young man, who is accustomed to caring for his younger siblings with a compassion that you do not normally find in a teenager, and another bright and mischievous 7 year old boy.  John passed away this past Wednesday unexpectedly after coming home from a “date night” out with his wife.  Martin and I took Amber and her kids in, and helped them call 911 for help, but John passed away before the ambulance could even arrive.  I talked with Amber at length last night, and this family is standing strong in the midst of this great storm.   They have not asked for any help, however, I know that they are in great need, both emotionally and financially.  If you feel it impressed on your heart to help in any way, please know that it would be a great blessing.  Your thoughts and prayers are the best way to help, as I know that the Lord will take them under his strong wings, but if you would like to send any other donations their way, please send the donation to me, and I will compile it and bless her family with it.  I will be accepting donation all next week and will deliver the money/etc. to them on Saturday, May 10th.   I will also have a card waiting for you to sign and leave a healing message to them along with your donation.  Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who may like to help. 

 

Thank you so much for your kind prayers and donations,

 

Mandy
