Mike & Heather Pavlas

As the news of what happened to Mike, a father and husband who is devoted to his family becomes a reality- family and friends are asking what they can do to help. First of all PRAY! Pray real hard for Mike’s body to heal and for wisdom and guidance for the doctors and medical personnel as they make decisions on what to do next so that he can be whole again. Yesterday, on his birthday, he showed up to work like it was another regular work day. Little did he know, another employee would show up and shoot him 5 times in front of fellow coworkers. Mike has already undergone 3 surgeries in less than 24 hours and has so much more to overcome. However, we know that the love he has for his family will give him the strength and determination to pull through!

Secondly- they will need as much help financially as possible. Clearly he won’t be at work ANYTIME soon and neither will Heather as she will understandably be by her husband’s side.  Mike has a long road of recovery ahead of him. We know he will conquer it. However, bills still have to be paid and life doesn’t stop. Their children still need to have as much normalcy as possible as well- even if that means going and doing something fun- as all kids like to do. 

If you find it in your heart to donate to this precious Alvin family, please do so.  If that is not in your means, prayers are so greatfully accepted as well!
