Late last night one of my students lost his house in a tragic fire. They are destitute as it is and have no place to live. We've put them up in a motel for the time being, but they've lost everything. In addition their father was badly hurt and can't work. Please pray for Roberto and his family, that someone will take them in, and that they make it through this.

Thanks in advance.

What a sad situation. Call the Red Cross. They are very helpful to families in these situations. Praying for the family.

How devastating. Does your school have the McKinney Vento Grant? Losing the home to fire would qualify them for assistance

I'm so sorry to hear that! That must've been such a terrifying experience. I will be praying for Roberto, his dad, and his family.

Prayers said. They should definitely call Red Cross. They made a huge difference when it happened to my mom and I. We never would have been able to do it without their financial support.

Praying for their family. If they go to Goodwill they will give them vouchers for clothing, and some household supplies, I think Salvation Army still does this also.

Thanks for all your prayers and advice. The Red Cross will pay for their hotel for three days. We have a family that we think will take them in, and our community liason is looking into getting them clothes. Roberto is a very good student, in sixth grade Pre-Algebra, and was worried about his binder and books and stuff. I am going to take him tomorrow to get it all replaced. I just love these kids so much and when people who work so hard and have so little experience things like this, it really gets to me. Thanks again for all your words of prayer and comfort.
