Alex & Alexa Overbay House Fire


On Sunday morning (September 17th) at 4:00 a.m. Alex and Alexa randomly woke up and saw a bright light outside their bedroom window. They woke up to their house in flames. With just enough time to grab their dog, Ava, they ran outside as they watched their house and all of their belongings burn. Hours later, the fire was put out but only a handful of belongings remained. The cause is unknown. They are not physically hurt and their faith remains steady but they will have to rebuild their home and buy every little belonging from scratch. Many people have reached out asking how they can help so I wanted to make it easy for any friends and family to give to one channel. If anything, I will post updates to this website (I am Alex's sister), so even if you cannot give, it is a good way to know how they are doing. They are SO humbled and blown away by everyone who has reached out, prayed, and given. 

Matthew 7:24-25 
“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. "
