 NATCHITOCHES, LA
Hello, our names are Josh, Steve, John, Benjamin, and Silas Axsom. Our parents, Matthew and Sarah Axsom, and our younger siblings Travis and AnnaLaura  recently lost their home in a fire, Sunday the 29th of May.

They did not have any insurance and the house is a complete loss. Only the slab is left.  To make matters worse, our parents had cashed out and had their retirement present in the house. The cause of the fire is still unknown, but believed to be electrical. 

Our parents would never ask for anything, but for those of you who have asked how you can help, we are creating this fund that will hopefully help them start over. 

This was our childhood home,  everything our parents had. Just the fact that so many of you have asked how you can help has been so encouraging. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for our parents and siblings at this time.

The following was written by our Dad, Matthew Axsom.

Words cannot fully express all of our heartfelt gratitude and thanks for the abundance of love and support shown to us during this time. Your prayers and donations are a great comfort and greatly appreciated. " And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for My strength is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor 12:9a.
Within a couple of days of the fire, Robert Morgan, owner of Romeaux's General Contracting in Natchitoches Louisiana, kindly stopped by our office and graciously offered to donate the equipment and labor to clear off the slab and remove the debris. On June 9, after three long days of clearing, Bob Rachal, the trackhoe operator finished the job. We can't thank Mr. Morgan and Bob enough for completing this huge task! On June 16th the slab will be evaluated by a civil engineer for structural integrity.

My brother Josh just completed 100 push-ups in two minutes to raise money for my parents after their house burned down! So thankful for those of you who pledged donations to match his push-ups!

100 push-ups in 2 minutes! Josh's new PR!

Please take this time to search your heart and consider helping this family in their time of loss. I can say from experience that if you have never been through a house fire, you cannot begin to know what this family is going through. Let's take time and assist this family during this devastating time. God has blessed us, so let's pay it forward. Thanks
