Homeless w/ medical bills

God will put you in the right place at the right time. For me that was a Steakhouse in Madisonville TX about a month ago. I was passing through and stopped to watch the Aggie game. Monday i was scheduled to go to child custody court. The entire process was weighing on me and I started venting to my waitress. She too has a young daughter. We talked about our daughters, building mobile home parks, Aggie football, and everything else.

She had just bought a new car. Worked two jobs 70+ hours a week. Her two biggest advantages were she owned her home and her daughter was healthy.

All that changed last Friday. She lost her house in a fire and her daughter was injured in the process. Her daughter has burns on both her homes and face. I believe she had surgery today. And just like that everything they had as a family was gone, including their pets.

The first and only day I met Bridget I left inspired. The grit she showed working for her family so hard is something to be admired. It's not rare that people work hard, but it is rare they do it with pride. That inspired me. Made me want to work harder.

Today when she asked me if I knew of any cheap mobile homes I thought she was listening to my advice about building a mobile home park on their land. Turns out it was my turn to repay her.

I wish we were at the point in our business that we could take this service on without having to ask for help. But the truth is we just aren't there yet. We can do all the work, we just need yalls help to buy the home and furniture.

I've already reached out to our mobile home dealer Clayton Homes in Corsicana. They are holding a new home for us Morgan said we could get it at cost.

I reached out to Blair at United Rentals in Waco and she is supplying us with a mini X. Our guys will be out over the weekend to remove the old home and do the site prep.

Our goal is to raise this money before the middle of next week so we can have the home set, plumbed, and skirted before Christmas. This may seem like an aggressive goal, but I know our network is capable.

Our ultimate goal is to serve in such a capacity, that all they have to do is take care of their baby girl and not worry about having a home to come home to.
