At 3:45 a.m., Mystie’s home burnt to the ground. I got the phone call around 4:00 a.m., and went straight over to her home. There was nothing left. They got out of the house with the clothes on their backs and that’s it. The fire marshall is investigating the fire to determine what started it. Don’t get me wrong, he doesn’t expect arson, it is just standard procedure. In the mean time, Mystie and her son will be staying with me
I don’t know how well you know Mystie or not, she was beginning to take over this part of the WOTC. Then when that happened you would have come to realize what a wonderful person she really is. I grew up with her, she has been my sister for as long as I can remember. Her life hasn’t been easy. She was living in Mississippi when Hurricane Katrina hit shore. She lost everything then. To make matters worse, she was going back to Mississippi to see what was left of her home and she was hit head on by a semi-truck. She had her two sons with her at the time. One of her son’s only suffered minor injuries while the other one along with Mystie was flown to Vanderbilt. I did leave her side and I prayed every night for both of them to return to us. She did recover and like me she does have scars from that wreck she will carry with her the rest of her life.
As much as she has been through, she always manages to have a smile on her face. I thought it was only right to let you know what had happened. If you feel the need to donate something, it would be greatly appreciated. Right now she is wearing my clothes and my son has brought over some of his clothes for her son. Like I said they have nothing. Rebuilding, starting from scratch is nothing I have ever had to do, I don’t know if I would have the fortitude that Mystie has shown or not to keep doing it and doing it.
Please keep them in your prayers,
