Helping the Jean Family....

As many of you know, the Jean family lost pretty much everything in a house fire yesterday evening. Lightning struck their house at about 5:30 p.m.

Praise God, Mary and the girls were able to get out safely. Greg was en route to Kazakhstan on business and was able to get turned around and home by early this afternoon.

Many, many people have stopped by and dropped off clothes, gift cards, etc. Many more people have been asking how they can help. Right now, the Jeans aren't sure where they're going to be living in the 6-9 months it will take to rebuild their home. Their most immediate need is a place to rent during that time. Until that falls into place, it's difficult to list specifics.

Gift cards really are a great way to help right now. They give Mary and Greg flexibility to fill needs as they come up.

Keith Elementary is currently collecting gift card donations for the Jeans. If you'd like to donate a gift card, you can drop it by the school. Or you can mail it to: Greg & Mary Jean, c/o Keith Elementary, 20550, Cypress, TX 77433

If you live in Fairfield, please help me spread the word!
