We have all seen the devastation that Hurricane Harvey has caused. For many of us it is just a news report or a video we watched on Facebook. But for others it is real life; a living nightmare.
My long time friend from grade school, Sara (Randol) Kent is living out that nightmare with her family. Thankfully, her, her husband, Ricky, and their two young boys were able to make it out of their neighborhood safely as the water started to rise in their home. But as the water receded and they were able to return home to assess the damage...it was heart wrenching. Their entire first floor is a loss, it will likely be months before they can find a contractor, and like so many affected, they do not have flood insurance. Their focus right now is to try and keep mold from growing in their home while waiting for repairs and to find a temporary place to live for the next several months.
God has put it on my heart to reach out to family and friends and raise money to give to the Kent Family for their needs. They are hard working parents whom are beyond thankful that there family was kept safe during this storm, but now they must face rebuilding all that was lost.
Please know that the money raised will 100% directly go into their hands. They will use it for the costs related to repairing their home, replacing items that were lost, and to help keep a sense of 'normal' for their boys during the next several months spent out of their home.
As the cliche goes, "no donation is too small", and that is particularly true in this case, as they have lost so much.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart, as I know they do as well, for any donation made. Please keep the Kent Family, and so many other families affected, in your prayers.
Love and God Bless,
