Helping the Bennett Family!

Hi Family and Friends!

Our family members, Mike, Ali and 6 week old baby Griffin Bennett lost everything in a fire last night. The Santa Paula, CA fires were met with the force of the Santa Ana winds, which caught their whole entire apartment building to catch on fire and burn to the ground. Fortunately, they are safe and well, but devastated with the lost of everything they own.

My wife and I are hoping to gather our village in the hopes to help them get back on their feet.  I put $1,000 as a goal, but I am sure they will need much more. If you feel called to assist monetarily, then this is where you can do this. Any amount will help as they are in the process of figuring out what is next.

If you can't donate today, no worries. We would appreciate your prayers as they walk through this tragedy during the Christmas season.  Many thanks for your time and consideration. God bless you and your families!
