Kim Erikson and Kiah Funk House Fire Fund

This message below is from a dear friend who has never lost her faith no matter what life has thrown her way.  She didn’t send this message asking for help.  She sent it as a way to show
her faith and strength.  In fact she had to be
convinced to let her friends help.  This isn’t the
way anyone would have wanted to start off
2021.  Kiah just turned 13.
Please consider helping. 

After a magical weekend of family time and lacrosse, we learned that we had suffered a devastating house fire while we were away. It was not the Christmas tree. We are safe but almost all was lost.

Let me tell you how God is good all of the time: 1. We were not home. 2. The neighbors were safe. 3. The Manger was the only thing left unscathed. 4. My new Tony Evans study Bible that Kiah got me for Christmas was only slightly water damaged. 5. A message of Hope. 6. We feel God’s presence with each difficult day. 7. God’s blessings abound. It is evident.

Thank you to all our family and friends who have surrounded and supported us. 

“A huge cloud of witnesses is all around us. So let us throw off everything that stands in our way. Let us throw off any sin that holds on to us so tightly. And let us keep on running the race marked out for us. Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who completes the journey of faith. He paid no attention to the shame of the cross. He suffered there because of the joy he was looking forward to. Then he sat down on the right hand of the throne of God. He made it through these attacks by sinners. So think about him. Then you won’t get tired. You won’t lose hope.”Hebrews 12

“God had breathed life into all Scripture. It is useful for teaching is what is true. It is useful for correcting our mistakes. It is useful for making our lives whole again. It is useful for training us to do what is right.”
2 Timothy 3
