Abram and his beautiful wife Elizabeth were a part of a church we attended years ago. We have remained close since then...2002 ish?
In July 2014 his mom disappeared from the family farm they all lived on. What has ensued since then has been a whirlwind of craziness, evil and betrayal. I will Include the link below so you can read more. But through it all I have watched them stand on the promise of God, trust in him to restore everything that was stolen from them and do it with courage. They lost their mom, their church, their family, their friends, their home, the inheritance and their careers! They lost more than you can imagine. So please rally with me to help them restart with a beautiful home they are buying!!

I asked Abram to share a bit and here is what he wrote:
As most of you know, our lives were torn apart in July 2014. As the following months stretched into years we were forced to confront the evil which was now desperately looming over us. By 2016 we knew we had to make a choice. Choosing between truth and lies… one path would pacify evil and violence… but the truth would cost us everything.
We have literally put our everything on the line for the truth. We were forced to let go of our family home provided by my grandfather. We chose to leave our furniture, beds, dressers, clothes, and career behind. All because we believed that truth was worth fighting for. We walked away from 90% of everything in our lives because we could not seek justice for my mom if we stayed.
We turned our backs to the things of this earth because we could not be obedient to Jesus Christ if we stayed.
We are still waiting for justice on this earthly plain, and it is closer now than ever before, but God, rich in mercy, has given us an opportunity (after many offers and attempts) to start again!
God has led us to a place to call home!
Our prayer is that we might continue to rebuild our lives in service to the King. To be able to use this home to minister to and serve in our rural communities, and advocate for justice.
Will you help us rebuild our lives?
But first, before you answer that question there is something else you must know. There is a God, and He offers His loving hand of comfort to those who seek Him! He came to love the unlovable, bind up the broken and comfort the comfortless. Beloved are you hurting? Have you too been robbed of your life… have you been victimized, brutalized and abandoned… there is a Friend I must tell you about. I know He is real because I have felt His loving embrace. I know He is real because through the violence and darkness I have heard His sweet voice of love and comfort! If He can save me, He can save you! If He can comfort us in this nightmare, then I know He can comfort you as well. You can find the satisfaction of your soul in Jesus Christ. Mark 1:15 tells us “repent and believe in the Gospel”. The Gospel is simply this: God loves you and has sent His Son to do for you what you could never do for yourself… take your sin away. To pick up the pieces of your soul and put you back together.
“Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved..” Acts 16:31
Believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He can rescue you. He can save you, for no one is too broken, too dirty, or too unlovable to be saved by the grace of God! For you have been loved with an everlasting love!
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart…” Jeremiah 29:12-13a
