The Story

Beloved friends, on January 19, 2017, our friend and brother, Cody Q. May, waded into Lake Travis near Austin, Texas, to meet his children who were floating on a raft near the shoreline.  He was not aware of the perilous underwater geography of this lake.  He stepped off an underwater shelf, and literally stepped into eternity.  A local boatsman was nearby, and deployed a flotation device for help, but was unable to effect a rescue.  The children were rescued safely.  The sheriff's office responded, and local search and rescue teams were called out, but their efforts were of no avail.  The next morning, the searchers found Cody's body.

As we grieve the loss of a dear brother and friend, let us come together in tender mercy for Kimberly and their 7 children.  This wound is fresh, and she will have many difficult days ahead.  God shall use us, His Church, to do His will in strengthening, sustaining, and supporting this widow and her lovely children.  

With the money raised so far, Kimberly has been able to pay off the remaining debt they incurred adopting their two children from Congo, and also to retire the loan on their family vehicle, which was just purchased, and will give her many years of reliable service.  This has been a great encouragement to her!  All the debt that lay behind her and the children, is indeed behind her.  But there are many uncertainties ahead.  The cost of daily living, fuel, insurance, simply feeding 7 hungry children!  All of these will require a steady and regular income, and a substantial reserve.  Please consider giving according to as the Lord moves in your own heart.

Allow me to pass along Kimberly's immense gratitude which she has expressed regarding the overwhelming support raised thus far through this fundraiser.  Thank you many times over!  And thank you again!

God's most intimate tenderness now turns to this family, bereft of their husband and father, their primary earthly provider.  So shall our tendernesses turn as we remember those in need continually.  Thank you in Christ Jesus for your support.
