A fire completely destroyed the home of pastor Vince, Sarah and their 3 young children.  (one of our Hope Center pastors) Thankfully they are alive but they lost everything in the fire.  Please help, all the money will go to them.  Read his story here: 
Praising Him In The Storm

This morning at 1am, I was awoken by the sound of the smoke alarm going off. I got up and went downstairs to see what was wrong and quickly realized it wasn't a false alarm. I immediately ran upstairs and yelled for my wife to grab the kids and get out of the house. She grabbed Gideon and I grabbed Caleb and Zach. By the time I was headed downstairs with the 2 boys, the stairwell was hot and full of smoke. We got the boys out to safety and immediately called 911. Within 3 minutes of exiting the house, part of the first floor had collapsed into the basement. Pretty much everything in the house was lost to the fire.

While we can choose to sit and focus on what we've lost...we have chosen to focus on just the opposite. Even though we've lost it all, at the same time...we've lost nothing at all! We escaped yet another attack on our lives unscathed! STUFF can be replaced, but the lives of my wife and children cannot.

I could be posting quite differently this morning had things been different, but again...STUFF is temporary and can be replaced. We can't take it with us. However...our family is all we have. It's the only thing we get to take with us from the is life into the next. I thanks God that while we may have lost everything...we've lost NOTHING!

While the enemy might try to pin us down for the count...we will rise in victory and give God the glory that He deserves. We could be in the hospital or even dead, but God isn't finished with us yet!

THE BEST IS YET TO COME!!!

Just in case you haven't met them, this is a photo of Pastors Vincent and Sarah and their boys. Everything you are giving goes to help them to re-purchase everything they lost-and to make it through the next few months.
