They Lost It All

Today, I’m asking you to consider helping out a family who lost everything to a house fire just a few nights ago.
It was 1:00 in the morning when the fire department was called.
Everyone is OK physically. They are still investigating the cause.
Jen and Matthew are exceptional people with three year old twin boys. They built this house themselves on special piece of wooded property in south Eugene. Mathew’s mother has a sweet little house on the property and his sister’s family built on the property as well.
Through a mutual friend I was introduced to them and asked to keep their twin boys once a week.
The boys and I would adventure in the garden, hang with the goats and chickens, pick blackberries on their magical piece of land. Before nap time, they’d picked one of the many books from their library to snuggled up and read.
These boys made me laugh and kept me on the go. I wrote of them on a blog post, September 4, 2020. Jen and Mathew, I’ll say it again, are damn good people.


This is what Jen’s boss has to say about her:
“Dear Friends, last night Jen Jackson, a dear friend and long-time Sponsors employee, lost the home she and her partner Matthew built, to a fire that destroyed everything. It is tragic and ironic. Ironic in the sense that Jen is the first person to help others out in times of crisis. She is one of the hardest working and most caring people I have ever met. Fortunately, she and Matthew and Sammy and Eli were physically unscathed. However, they have lost all of their possessions and their home, not to mention the trauma of this event that will be with them forever. I would strongly encourage you to consider making a donation to their Go Fund Me page (see below). I know if the shoe were on the other foot, Jen would be the first to step up and help out.”
