David has touched so many people with his kindness and prayer, me included. When I decided to write full time a few years ago, I asked a question on a message board about finding a free version of Microsoft Word. I received several responses about Open Office and one email from David asking for my address. He had an extra copy of Word and had prayed that God would give him someone who could use it.
It's nothing huge in the grand scheme of things, but it was grand to me. I feel horrible about his family's loss, but so terribly grateful they're alive.
Here's the email I received:
This morning ACFW member (and CFBA member) David Meigs and his family lost their home to a fire. Thankfully, the family and the pets all got out safely. However, the Meigs family has basically lost everything. I've set up a special fund through Paypal. If you'd like to contribute to the Meigs Family fund go to Paypal.com and send your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org (put "For the Meigs Family" under the comments). I'll ensure David gets the funds.
If you have questions or comments, please contact me privately. Blessings!

Since I am also a Zone Director for ACFW, I am passing this along to our CFBA membership and let them join in the same general fund rather than create separate entities!
God bless you all.
