Carroll Family House Fire Fund

Sunday night, Matt put his kids to sleep, finished up some work and went to bed with everything in his life in order.  Around 2am, he awoke to the unthinkable.  His dogs were barking and his house was in flames.  He jumped out of bed and through the smoke, rushed to find his sleeping kids and get them out of the house.  All they had were the clothes on their backs and one load of clean laundry he was able to grab on the way out the door.  He sat in his truck watching the home he built for his family burn to the ground.  Currently, Matt is raising his and Emily's 3 children while she is on a 1 year deployment in Africa with the Navy.  While they were extremely lucky that everyone got out ok, they lost everything they own.  Please give whatever you can. Anything will help. We are forever grateful for all your thoughts, prayers and support during this difficult time.
