Recover from Hurricane Irma

"Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer"
Romans 12:12

On the weekend of September 9th, 2017 my brother Michael(Miguel), his wife Lisa along with their children Daniella, Joey, Ethan, 3yr old Bruce, and their pets including a bird, cat and Miguel's service dog Stryker, all lost their home to the devastating hurricane Irma In Jacksonville, FL . In a matter of minutes their  whole life was turned upside down. It's one of those things you never think will happen to you . We are very blessed that none of them were hurt, however, they now have no place to call home and must find a place to stay within the next six days.

Miguel has serviced our country and is an awarded, retired Army Veteran who was deployed twice to Iraq with the 101st Airborne Screaming Eagles. Due to his conditions sustained during his time at war, he was given a service dog, Stryker, to help him get through his day to day. Here is a link to the moment Miguel was honored with his special companion.

He is a dedicated, hard working family man and student. This is a loving, compassionate and God fearing family in need of any assistance they can get right now. 

Anyone who knows them knows they don't ask for help, but now they are in need of prayers and help as they will begin the task of trying to come up with the money to find a new home and replace all that was lost. Every little bit helps and even if you can't help monetarily please just send a prayer their way.

I Thank you in advance for your concerns, prayers and generosity.

God bless! #recoverfromirma
