Flood Relief for Bear

My name is Jeremy Williams and I live in the Houston area, which obviously has experienced record flooding this week. Several years ago when I was a pastor at a local church I met a big, loveable guy who told me to call him Bear.

My friend Karl, known to most as "Bear," has been greatly affected by the floods resulting from Hurricane Harvey. His home, which is also the garage where he works from, has been flooded causing massive loss of vehicles, furniture and appliances as well as his tools in his garage. These tools are his livelihood as Bear is a mobile mechanic. Without his tools he cannot earn a living.

Bear also often uses his mechanical skills to bless others by helping those in need with their car troubles. He's given a lot and is in need of our help.

I have set the goal on this campaign to just $100 which is obviously not all he will need but I want to make sure he receives everything given to him (GoFundMe requires the goal to be met before the campaign is funded). Please pray for Bear and give as you are able. All funds collected will go straight to Bear to help him recover from this devastating loss by providing the tools and vehicle he needs for work and the furniture and other items he needs to have a home again. Bear will be able to recieve the funds directly from GoFundMe.
