The Story

If you've met the Stults family, you will know that they march to the beat of their own drum, think for themselves, and do things a bit differently.  They have a faith that drives them, they reach out to those in need, and they do it all with hopes of not drawing attention to themselves.  They are a unique tribe!  And we love them for it.

This Supporting the Stults Tribe Project is set up to support our dear friends through a major challenge that they are facing as I write this and you read this.  The short of the long is that Vince has a very large and very serious brain tumor.  The details will come in upcoming posts, but now is the time to act.  Pray, make them a meal, arrange a visit, donate to their family's monetary needs.

Fundraiser Updates

I was contacted the other day from someone who wanted to GIVE their van to the Stults family!  Isn't that just amazing?  This family has also had suffered a great loss in their lives, but they know the joy of giving.  So they did just that!  I heard from Connie yesterday and they took a ride in the afternoon and were going to have a picnic in the evening, just Connie and the kids.  

The funeral plans and celebration of life have been planned.  Here is the link to the obituary:  http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thestarpress/obituary.aspx?n=vincent-stults&pid=180153986

The page is staying open, however the focus will be on the living expenses Connie and the kids will have over the next few months.

Connie needs a new vehicle....3 weeks ago!  I have been informed that Vince's life insurance will be covering the funeral cost, which is wonderful news.  A few days before Vince died, Connie and I talked about the fact that her car is no longer road worthy-not even in town.  This was something that really bothered Vince as he hated knowing she didn't have a reliable way to get around and with 4 kids still at home and often having doctor's appointments in Indy.  Our car guru friend, Sam, has agreed to help with the practical side of finding a van.   Please consider supporting the Stults Tribe by helping to meet a practical need they have.

This is the update that I didn't want to share and yet its time to share it.  The world has lost our dear friend Vince, but heaven has gained a champion.  There are a plethora of expenses that are going to be rolling in from funeral expenses, to lost income, to the fact that Connie's van is beyond its last leg.  As we all sit feeling helpless, we can pray, we can sign up to make meals and we can try and come alongside to care for the family that Vince has left behind.    Here is the update from Connie:

This morning my Vincent went home to be with Jesus. He is now the owner of a perfect body and is free of pain. His ending on this earth was swift and full of pain, but God was also merciful. The ending with glioblastoma is often so much worse. I'm thankful that Vince did not experience many of the other hard things that could have come. We had some beautiful moments together with children reading Scripture aloud to their dad, singing his favorite hymn, and comforting him as his body stopped working. Much of our family was together as we waited and did what we could to help Vince.
Some of you heard this hard news by way of a Facebook post that was not from me- and that you were unsure of. I'm so sorry about the upset and hurt that caused. That is not how we wanted you to hear the news.
Our family will be spending some private time the next few days to process and grieve together. Yes, we have food. Yes, we are okay. I will let you know about plans to celebrate Vince's life very soon. Thank you all so much for your prayers and love. We appreciate and need them more than you know.
