Help recover from a total home lose

I don't even know where to start but here it goes. My brother, sis n law and 7 year old nephew lost their home in a fire 3 weeks ago. It was a total lose and as it stands the insurance claim does take time, so this has left them paying a mortage on a home that no longer exist. Also the utilities were still due for this month along with disconnect fees. They are currently able to stay with my parents but this is a temperary fix. This comes on top of unemployment and serious illness of one of them. Even though they have a place to sleep and eat that is safe and full of love, they daily transitional finances are starting to pile up. They would never ever ask for help because they are as stubborn as me. :o)  So I will do it for them because I love these people more than I could ever express!

I don't want to ask for any specific amount, but I do ask you that if you have even a little to help out in this tranistional period it would be a great blessing to this family. They need everything from clothes to school lunches to whatever you can imagine.  I can assure you any donation you give will not be squandered on lavish things. It will purely to be help fill the gap as they progress through this HUGE VALLEY in there life journey. 

Thank you guys so much for even reading this and considering it. I ask you to pray about it: 1) if you should give and 2) for this family's continued strenght, healing and to restore not only the things that have been lost but the family better than it was before. 


Deuteronomy 15:10
Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to.

Deuteronomy 16:17
Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the LORD your God which He has given you.
