The Story

On January 5th, tragedy struck the Craig and Emily Houston family. Their sweet 11 month old baby boy, Lemuel, was found unresponsive and not breathing. CPR was immediately performed by his brother, until paramedics arrived. Lemuel was resuscitated at a local hospital and then transferred to a pediatric intensive care unit, outside of the Houston family's home town. Right now, they are with their sweet baby day in and day out - praying for a miracle and fully trusting in the Lord. God is good to provide both strength and peace. He is also good to allow others to be a part of blessing and that is where this fundraiser comes in. While the Houston family is grateful for prayer on behalf of their baby and family - we can also help with the expenses that are mounting from both travel for their family, emergency airline tickets coming home from the Phillipines, meals, other needs, and any medical costs that will be associated with this tragedy. Please know, that the Houston family is grateful for every avenue of support - prayer, sharing this fundraiser with others and for any contribution you might be able to make. Thank you so very much.

*Edited to Update*
The Houston family wishes to express their gratitude for the countless messages, words of encouragement, donations and most of all prayer. Little Lemuel rests now safely in the arms of Jesus. He passed from this world into eternity January 20th, surrounded by his family. He is missed tremendously. The Houston family is again, so grateful for every kind word, donation and prayer since the accident occurred. Funds from this fundraiser will continue to go to help with the financial needs as they move forward. Please continue to pray for the Houston family as they grieve this earthly loss, yet celebrate Lemuel's heavenly reward.

"Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." 2 Corinthians 5:6-8

Dear Friends, Family, and Anonymous Givers, 

Thank you seems insufficient to express our gratitude for both the prayers and financial support that you have given to our family during our son, Lemuel Craig Houston’s, hospitalization after a tragic accident in our home. As you likely know, Lem went home to be with the Lord on January 20, 2017, just two days after his first birthday. Nothing can or will ever replace the loss of Lemuel, but knowing that people like you cared during his struggle, was a kind reminder that God was still at work in our lives and that he was using you to demonstrate that reality. 

With Grateful Hearts, 

Craig and Emily Houston Family
