Words cannot express how deep and numb I feel right now! I have lost my home! But worst than that the family who was living in my home are without a permanent shelter and have lost ALL of their personal belongings and values.

Three years ago I went through a very difficult time in my life. Due to a tragic and devastating divorce, I was struggling trying to pay my mortgage, go to school, care for my son, all while working 2 jobs. Then God gave me an opportunity to move to Texas for a better career, but I was paralyzed by FEAR! I couldn't dare imagine how I could live the home that I had built, my dream (or at least what I thought was a dream), leave my friends and church family and start anew in Texas. However, more than any of that I was scared about how I could pay my mortgage in Oklahoma and my rent for a new home in Texas. After much prayer I stepped out on faith and contacted a realtor and said I am ready to take this leap. I put my home up for lease on Thursday at 5 p.m. and the Mustin family leased it the next day at 9 a.m.---talk about FAITH and God! Over the last three years my life has transformed in more ways than one and the Mustin family played a huge part of this journey (and they don't even know it)! Without them I would not have been able to relocate to Texas and rebuild the life that my son and I had that was destroyed by divorce; without them my home would have been foreclosed on and I would be one of millions of Americans filing bankruptcy. Without the Mustin family I would not have been able to complete my PhD, start my business, travel, and sleep everyday knowing that my family's future is okay! This family has been a true blessing to me from God! Without them I would not be where I am at today!!! So, now it is payback time. I owe them and I need your help.

Due to hard times, this family had to make a decision to either pay rent or pay for renter's insurance and they elected to allow their renter's insurance to lapse! So they have nothing! They lost all of their furniture, clothing, pictures, mementos, and everything that they have ever acquired in their life! The storm also destroyed both of their cars. While, I can file a claim and cover my home---this family cannot do so! They have a son named Chas that was planning to graduate Moore High School this Saturday--but that may not even be possible! Chas has not only lost his home, but all of his precious memories from high-school. Chas is a wonderful young man who desires to be a surgeon (and boy don't we need more doctors)! And let's talk about heroes! Chas is a true hero he was not supposed to leave school early, but did not want his mom to be home alone--so he grabbed the mattress off of his bed and covered him, his mom, and their family pet and took shelter in the master closet---which is the ONLY thing standing! Now that is a hero!

I am asking each person who reads this message to do two things: 1. Make a donation of any amount to help this family. 2. Please share this link with your family, friends, and church. This family has been a blessing to me and it is my time to thank them!
