The camper and everything in it is a complete loss so he is now homeless with only the clothes on his back. Luckily we had our dogs with us and no one was hurt. Had we been inside sleeping when it caught fire it would be a whole other tragic story but thankfully we were not there, missing being in it as it went up in flames by only a matter of minutes.
Roman is a very strong hard working man that doesn't like to ask for help but in the matter of an hour he lost his home and everything he owned and is completely devastated. He really needs help right now and since he won't ask, I will ask for him.
He is a plumber and all of his tools needed for work were in the camper and the vast majority were not salvageable. We need to replace his tools since he is unable to complete jobs without them. The sooner they are replaced the sooner he can start working again.
All clothing items are now gone so he has to start from scratch. Socks, shoes, boxers, jeans, shirts, jackets, etc. all need to be replaced.
And of course he now needs somewhere to live. Ideally he would like to purchase another camper/motor home but right now funds would help with getting into a hotel room or something temporarily until a more permanent solution can be acquired.
Thank you so much for your time. Please share this so that hopefully we can come together and help him get back on his feet and show him that sometimes its okay to need help. We know God never gives us more than we can handle but this is really tipping the scales towards being real close to too much.
