 GATLINBURG, TN
As you may know, our dear friends, Ruth Martin, Deborah Martin Gillespie and Mark Martin, have suffered the loss of their homes, cars and essentially everything they own as a result of the catastrophic fires that swept through Gatlinburg.  Each of these friends have been and continue to be involved in ministry serving Jesus as was their husband and father, Dr. Clyde Martin, and they have always unselfishly and sacrificially reached out to those in need.  

Many have reached out and asked how we all who love them can help.  Needless to say, their needs immediately and in the coming days and months will be many as they start rebuilding their lives - even things we take for granted like clothes, food, living expenses, and on and on.  They have lost priceless things that can't be replaced, but we CAN help with these immediate needs they are facing.  

I have known and ministered with these friends and am so honored to have them in my life and I'm certain so many of you feel the same way.  Please, let's all bless them back for all the years they have served our Lord and blessed us!

I know whatever you can give will be gratefully received and God will bless you for your love gift.  We love you, Miss Ruth, Deborah and Mark, and God loves you the most.

Thanks everyone for getting us to a little over half of our immediate goal for the Martin family! Please feel free to share this post and get the word out to those who can and will help with this family's huge needs. They are at present in a motel and it's my understanding they've lost cars as well as the entire contents of their homes which would include clothing, computers and the things we all use in everyday life. I'm so thankful for those of you who have given so graciously and this family is so grateful. Please fee free to share this so we can hopefully meet our immediate goal for them. God bless you!
