Blessing the Bowles

On 9/11 my grandparents lost their home during Hurricane Irma.   A huge pine tree fell through the center of the house splitting it in two.  We are praising the Lord that they were in Missouri at the time of the storm and no one was hurt.  

Currently their home has been deemed unliveable and will need to be torn down.   The home was uninsured as it was a mobile home which are extremly hard to cover.  As you can imagine this is going to be very costly for clean up, removal and finding them a new home.  
We are now working hard to clean up the damage and find them a new home but need help..  

My grandparents do not like to ask for help and would NEVER ask anyone for money. They live to serve others and have been doing so their whole lives.  Lets rally together and help them in their time of need. 

First and foremost we are asking for your prayers for my grandparents and everyone affected by this storm. There are so many lives changed by the destruction of this storm.  If you have the means to donate we would greatly appreciate it.  

John and Melba Bowles have touched so many families with their love, service, prayers, and generosity. We ask that you might seek the Lord on how you can be a part of blessing this family who has been such a blessing to others.

The prayers of a righteous person are powerful and effective (James 5:16) so if you feel led to pray, pray. Romans 12:13 says that we should share with the Lord’s people who are in need, so if you feel led to give, please give.
