Eates Water Main Break Support Fund

On November 20, 2014 late in the evening, J.D. and Julie thought that perhaps there was a problem with their water heater.  Unfortunately, not long after, a nearby water main break that had been running underground eroded their land, and a the ground gave way where it had been undermined.

This damage goes all the way under their house.  They no longer have a front yard, or driveway.  Julie's car is trapped in the garage.  Their house has been deemed "uninhabitable".  

Thankfully - J.D., Julie, and Rosco were able to leave the house safely and stay with relatives.  However, at this time they are essentially homeless.

As we gather to give thanks this week our family is so, so thankful that J.D. and Julie are safe.   We are asking for some modest assitance with the financial burden that an emergency such as this can bring.  If you can make a donation we would appreciate it very much. If you cannot make a donation, we simply ask you say a prayer for J.D. and Julie and the family's strength.
