During the early morning hours on January 5, 2014 Bobby and Michelle Murray lost their home in a fire that engulfed everything that they own. Thankfully, they were not in their home at the time and Molly (their dog) was safely with them too. Unfortunately, they did not yet have insurance on their home and could really use our help to get back on their feet.

For those of you reading this that don't know, Bobby and Michelle were just getting ready to start a new adventure in their lives. After watching a documentary that inspired them to live more simply, they sold their home in Buchanan, Michigan bought a 5th wheel trailer and a truck and got rid of much of their "stuff" (Michelle placed all of their unwanted items on a Free table outside the house and donated it to neighbors in need) in order to Jump start this new life. Their new home, which Michelle very appropriately called "The Nest" was temporarily parked outside a friend's home in Eau Claire, MI while Michelle and Bobby could come up with a destination to begin this new chapter.  As Bobby has been working hard in his career at an architecture firm (and many other side jobs...seriously this man never takes a break!) and Michelle just graduating from nursing school and passing her boards (yay! Michelle Murray, RN) they had finally decided on Denver, Colorado. With plans to leave in just two short weeks, they were ready to hit the ground running and head out west. 

Unfortunately, last night their home, the Nest, caught fire. The front ends of their truck and car are melted. On top of all of this, they did not have insurance on the fifth wheel. They have quite literally lost everything they own. Their home, keepsakes, clothes, etc and could use any type of donation you're able to give (even $5.00 can buy some new underwear). Bobby and Michelle could really use our help in getting back on their feet, so please donate what you can.  

Bobby and Michelle are constantly giving to others, whether it's buying someone's lunch who forgot their wallet to buying Christmas gifts for the less fortunate, they are always Lending a helping hand. Their giving nature is also reflected in their aspirations to become missionaries some day. This is our chance to help them now and show them how many people care so deeply about them. 

If nothing else please send prayers as they navigate through this difficult time. Also, for those of you in Michigan that have clothes or shoes to donate that would be helpful as well. Bobby wears a size 10 shoe and could use some boots. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this, let's do our best to help Michelle and Bob get back to their adventure ASAP. Love to you all!
