Update on Dwight & Linn

Ok, I received an email from a friend of D & L's. Here is what she says...

Elizabeth & Elijah's room is completely destroyed, along with the laundry room. The rest of the house sustained heavy smoke & water damage. Elizabeth's size is a 3T and Elijah's is a 24M. Isaiah is in 4t or 5, Liberty is in a 10, and Emma is a women's size 0. They think that few of the kids' clothes will be salvageable due to the smoke & water damage. Graham lost all of his clothes, as he had them in the laundry room. He wears a 32/32 pant and men's medium shirt. The only shoe size I have right now is Graham's, which is a 10 or 10 1/2.

Dw has a few clothes, as he was at that pastors' retreat. Linn ran out without a coat or anything. We weren't sure of their sizes, but we think Dw is a large or xl, and Linn might be a 6, but that's just a guess.

They said that gift cards of any kind would be the most help right now, especially perhaps the Visa ones that you can use anywhere. They have food for a few days, as well as a house to stay at for the time being.

Unless I hear otherwise, I would imagine that any clothing or toy donations could be sent to the church (their address is in the previous post).

Thanks again everyone!!!

My prayers are with this family. Having BTDT unfortunately with a house fire, I can tell you that gift cards and restaurant gift certificates really were what helped us the most during that extremely trying time.

I have not been able to post on their blog- it could be too busy or it could be my computer. My heart is aching for them.

I know that they will come out of this showing us the love and glory of God but for now we need to help them! Thank you Lori for keeping us updated. Please tell them my prayers are with them. I will be donating right after payday!
God Bless them!
