Let's Bless the Maddens

I've known Russ and Melanie and family for over 3 years now.  They have become like a second family to me so this campaign is near and dear to my heart.  

I don't know of a couple that has a bigger heart for helping people than Russ and Mel.  They have helped countless people with car repairs, home repairs, home renovations, and their wonderful hospitality.  They truly are the hands and feet of Christ to all who know them.

They have a heart of service, and now they need us to serve them back.  They could really use our help.  

Their family vehicle needs a new engine.  As good of a mechanic as Russ, this isn't a DIY job he can tackle.  It will have to be hired out.  

And as you can imagine a new engine on a large family vehicle like theirs isn't cheap, thus the reason for this page being created.

Please help this amazing family out, who has helped so many people without expecting anything in return, so they can get their vehicle back and not have to worry about the financial burden this has created.  Thank you.
