    Prayer request: GAC's house has burned down

    I just received a phone call from GAC. His house has reportedly burned to the ground. He was on his way home. Neighbors have told him that his three kids and his wife are safe, but apparently the house has been totally destroyed and his family has lost everything.
    I will be gone most of today, but if I learn more I will post additional details. GAC obviously cannot post here at the moment. For now, please keep him and his family in your prayers.

    Oh my Lord. This is terrible news. Thank you, RB, for letting us know about this. Thank goodness everyone is safe.

    GAC... everything will be alright in the end. Keep your head up and let any of us know if you need anything.

    OMG! GAC, if there's anything I can do to help, just let me know buddy.

    I hope and pray that the report of your family is OK is correct. Everything else can be overcome.

    Prayers and best wishes....

    Just got off the phone with him, they lost everything they own. The house is completely gutted.

    His wife and kids are definitely safe though.
