You may never see me do this again (editing to try to fix problems)

It will be a very rare occurrence for you to see me request help on here for some cause.  I posted before about the flooding here in Pensacola.  There is an Orthodox Catholic priest here in town, Fr. Nathan Monk, who does a lot of work for the poor and homeless in the community.  He and his wife and 2 very young daughters were just flooded out of their home today.  If any of you are able to help them in any way, if you see the link below, it’s a picture of them standing in their flooded house, and links to Fr. Monk’s Facebook page.  I know that they would appreciate any help you could give them.

Ironically they were planning a yard sale today to raise funds for the homeless, but the heavy rains forced them to cancel, and then they were flooded out of their own home.  There is a link in the comments by this photo that Nathan put, where people can donate if they’re able.

Again, I won’t do this often, but I do know them personally, and I know they’re very much involved, hands on, with helping the poor and homeless here in Pensacola.  Thanks.

Love and blessings,

      Thanks Stephen. They really do a whole lot here for the homeless. Politically speaking, we’re polar opposites. LOL…They’re very liberal. But I have visited their church and consider them friends, and I greatly appreciate what they do for the poor here. They’re very much hands on, helping. They had started a garden to grow fresh vegetables to feed the needy too. Not sure how that fared in the floods, but I don’t imagine it did well considering the flooding around the church and their home. Thanks again.
