The home they recently moved into is flooded along with their cars. They did not have a chance to pack much of anything before trying to get out of the Baytown area next to the bayou they live near. Now they will need to start over.
This is not the first time my brother has experienced loss. When we were kids, we had a house fire and our parents had to rebuild from scratch. For my brother Demond (Jessie) to have to relive this type of disaster as an adult with his family breaks my heart. He and Georgia will have to explain to their kids that there new house is under water and they can't go back home. Right before their 5 year old was suppose to start kindergarten.
So not only do I solicit your prayers, but I ask that you give whatever is placed on your heart to help Demond, Georgia and the kids get back on their feet and find a place to live temporarily until the house can be fixed.
Please know that no amount is too small and every cent raised will be given to my brother and his family.
