Help Bring My Brother Home

I've never made one of these before, but it's for one of the best causes I could ever think of. I'm raising money to help with funeral costs for my brother (Brother-in-law) Dylan. At only 25 years old, he was working as a missionary doing God's work in Tondo Manila, Philippines. He was also going to school there to help teach and spread the word of God to the unfortunate families there in Manila. He was in an unfortunate accident which took his life. Dylan's brother Travis (my husband) and their mother Melanie have been getting calls non stop to trying to figure out funeral arrangements and costs. They had told us it would be about $9,000 just for us just to bring him home. An average funeral costs around $10,000 itself.. Dylan was the most caring, giving, loving and selfless soldier of God I've ever known. I don't know anyone like him.. He gave up all of his most dear possessions to go live in the Philippines and spread the word of God. He was the most selfless person in everything he did and deserves to come home and be put to rest. His soul will be greatly missed by all who crossed his path. Anyone one who knew him knew how amazing he was. We were all so blessed to know him. Again, the cost to just bring him home is $9,000. That doesn't even count for the funeral, which is usually around $10,000. Anything will help.
*** We will be getting a donation from a church. Any money that is raised over our goal will go to Missions. Thanks to everyone in advance, God Bless ❤️
