Talked to Joe's other sister yesterday, and praise God their insurance said that they can rebuild and have the same house if they wanted to — its covered! In addition, her husband had gotten paid for a job and had left the cash in the house in a drawer — he went to the drawer and it (money) was still intact.
Her work also pulled together and gave her a substantial sum of cash to help them get back on their feet also. God is totally revealing Himself through all this. They are holding up well so far, and from what I've heard are staying quite upbeat. So thank you Lord.
We've invited them to come on Sunday, so am believing God for that. Thank you all for your prayers for them. I stopped by the house last night after visiting his other sister, and was astounded, and continue to be astounded by the devastation.
My father was a fire fighter while I was growing up, and I'm sure he saw plenty of this, but I never have. Nothing quite like that. Blows my mind at how powerful fire is. Blessings and love to you all.
