David Meigs' home burned down.

On Monday this week, December 22, just three days before Christmas, David Meigs’ of Curmudgeon’s Rant home burned down. They lost practically everything, but they all got out safely. Praise God!

David and his three sons were home at the time, and his wife Darla, was at work. Their youngest son has one large blister on his foot and the hospital treated David for smoke inhalation, but other than that, they are all okay. They are staying in a motel while they try to figure things out.

They had no time to dress or even put on their shoes. In freezing conditions, they got out of their home wearing only their pajamas. Barefooted, they had to dig their car out of very dig deep snow so they could drive 3/4 mile to a neighbor's house and dial 911. I bet that was so cold. Brrrrrrrrrr

The fire destroyed everything in their home including all their computers and all David’s work is gone. Fortunately, I had been doing some editing for David and therefore had copies of two of the novels he has written. His novels need a publishing home, just as David and his family need a home themselves.

Please pray the Lord blesses them in all areas of their needs.

Here is a link to the story with more details of the fire.

Praise God, David and his family are all safe. What a mighty God we serve.

I have been asked where help can be sent to and seeing as I have been told where, I shall add it here.

Two organizations that David belongs to, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance (CFBA) and the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) are collecting donations for the family through PayPal. The NorthWest Zone Director for ACFW, Annie McDonald is coordinating the fund.

If you'd like to contribute to the Meigs Family fund go to Paypal.com and send your donation to dancingword@gmail.com (put "For the Meigs Family" under the comments).
