Back The Brewers! Robee & Family Funeral
A wonderful, God fearing, loving, giving, selfless family desperately needs your help. On Friday January 24th Robee Brewer (age 21), the youngest son of four children, was found murdered in a California motel room. As you can imagine, this has been quite a detriment for a family that lost their loving father and husband, Russell Brewer, to a 4 year battle with brain cancer and their beloved grandmother/mother within the past year. The Brewer family, would never want to burden anyone by asking themselves, so their friends and family are asking instead. Please help us raise donations so that the Brewer family can reclaim their son/brother from California, celebrate his life and going home together, and lay him to rest.
Starting the week of January 27th, the costs will begin mounting. Rachelle and Rusty (the two middle children) will be flying to California to identify Robee's body. Then they will have him cremated, and bring his ashes back to his mother, Linda Brewer, here in Dallas, TX for a funeral and burial of the ashes. There is one additional need, however: the oldest brother - Ryan - is with his wife and 2 kids (1 less than a month old) in Thailand as they are missionaries helping girls escape the sex slave industry and ministering to them about the love of Jesus Christ. Ryan and his wife, Randi, are desperate to return home for Robee's funeral but do not have the funds to do so.
Since there is no life insurance, the costs to do all of this is high, but the funds are low. This is where you come in. This is where you can help a family in such need. We are trying to reach $15,000 to cover these expenses. Additional funds that are left over will go towards Ryan and Randi's ministry in Thailand. Please help us help the Brewers. Let's rally around the Brewers and show them the love and support they need. No gift is too small if we all work together, so please share this with others via Facebook, Twitter, Email or word of mouth! Thank you and may God bless you.
"And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had, and they sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. They worshipped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved." -- Acts 2:44-47
Also the video of Robee's Memorial service is on the church website http://www.familycathedral.org/ Just click on Watch on-line and select the correct video. Also a big thank you to everyone who worked to make today special.... the awesome AV team, the pastors, ushers, nursery, greeters, women's group, etc, etc, and Sammie Walkers BBQ http://www.menuism.com/restaurants/sammy-walkers-bar-b-que-rowlett-149066 who provided the food for the family. It continues to remind me how "families" come together when one of theirs is hurt. We have all seen first hand how amazing that has been over the past two weeks.
Rachelle posted last this afternoon that the man who murdered Robee was caught today. There is very limited details but an answer to prayer that this man will be locked up and not able to hurt anyone else. Lastly, please keep Linda, Ryan, Randi, Rusty, Rachelle and entire family in your prayers as they start dealing with the "new normal" of their lives next week. Pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to comfort them and keep them in God's arms of love.
Rachelle and Rusty also will be finalizing today the preparation of bringing Robee's ashes back and will be meeting with the Victims Assistance group.
Ryan and little Amos are on their way here- pray for traveling mercies and strength. Randi and baby Keeva are not coming due to Keeva not having a passport yet and being so young. Please keep Randi in your prayers also as her heart is heavy for her husband and family.
Finally, please continue to keep Linda in your prayers. Her heart is broken as anyone can imagine. The entire Brewer family so appreciate their "family" coming together to support them in financial support, love and especially prayers for comfort, peace and wisdom. Please continue all of these and share/forward the need for the continuance of them.
Reminder that Robee's Memorial Service has been schedule for Saturday, February 8 at 11 AM at Family Cathedral of Praise in Mesquite.
