Friends, we’re not half-way to our goal in our holiday fundraiser. We’d appreciate your help in providing funds for the Drake House and North Fulton Community Charities. Check out Clayton’s post for the details.
And now let me given you another reason to give and this one is rather personal.
A lady my wife and I are close to here in Macon saw her son gunned down Tuesday night. They were at a family birthday party and a neighbor wanted in on the family gathering. When they told him it was a family gathering, he returned with a gun and fired shots into the group, killing our friend’s son. Random and senseless. Evil and cruel.
The son had two children. An 11 year old son and a 13 year old daughter. Their mother died from an illness a few years ago. They are orphaned and have now been taken in by our friend, their grandmother.
Our friend has also been helping her daughter, who is recovering from breast cancer related surgery and fighting that fight.
As you can imagine, this is going to be a painful Christmas season for this family. They are strong, but the Lord is really testing them.
Talking it over with Clayton, we want to use some of the money from our fundraiser to make sure this family has a good Christmas — to let them know we care.
Please help us meet our $2,000.00 goal and we’ll make sure the Drake House, North Fulton, Charities, and this Middle Georgia family have a good Christmas season.
