Byrd went on social media and said, “Today was a devastating start to the new year. We lost our home of 22 years due to a Christmas tree fire in our living room, but I thank God we [were] at church.”
The family lost their belongings as well as their kitten. One thing that made it through the fire was Byrd’s Bible.
Through all the ashes a firefighter pulled the Bible out without any damages on it and began to cry. Since the fire many people in the community have made donations to get Byrd’s home back in order.
The fire isn’t the only thing the family is facing, Byrd’s, 7-year-old daughter is in remission after battling leukemia. We will continue to keep this family in our prayers.
