Phelps' Children Crisis Aid

UPDATE: After missing for three long weeks, Chris Phelps was found, deceased. He had become a victim of the current opioid crisis & lost his life on February 25, 2019. 

In addition to the ongoing & growing needs for the children, Chris's parents are now faced with the expenses of a funeral. There is no insurance coverage.

Please help this family during this tragic season of grief.


On Monday, February 25, 2019, Chris Phelps went missing without a trace. His wife, Marci, is currently receiving medical treatment.

The couple have four children, ranging in ages 8-14. Responsibility for the care of these young lives has fallen on one pair of retired grandparents, without the means to do so. There is no income for these four children. There are no remaining vehicles from Chris & Marci's household. Health insurance will cancel at the end of March 2019.

We're asking you to prayerfully consider helping the grandparents of these four children.

Thank you for your abundant love, continued prayers, hope and help. May God bless you.
