Among the many people affected by California's deadliest wildfires, currently making global news, is popular worship leader Brenton Brown who's family home has been destroyed by fire. A GoFundMe page has been started to help the Brown family through the tragedy. Brenton is best known for writing worship songs such as 'Hosanna (Praise is Rising)' and 'Everlasting God', and fellow worship leader Paul Baloche tweeted a plea for people to help:
Do you know Brenton Brown? Have you sung his songs? Please consider helping in this time of crisis. Thank you! https://t.co/7QzzEHnTP3- Paul Baloche (@paulbaloche) November 13, 2018
More than 300,000 people have been forced to flee their homes across California and the fires have so far killed more than 50 people. The GoFundMe page setup for the Browns says, "Brenton & Jude Brown and their girls have lost their home and all but a few essentials in the California fire. This past week they were forced to evacuate, what they had believed would be their forever home, this side of heaven.
Leaving with only their "go bag" and a very few personal items, they drove to safety and awaited news.
A day later, they were told their house had burnt to the ground. They share in a grieving community which has lost both homes and lives to these tragic fires.
Please join us as we rally around the Browns by giving what you can. Pray for their family, and for all of those impacted by these fires, and all those who continue to fight these fires even to this moment.
Please share this campaign so we can bless the Brown family who have blessed so many of us over the years.
Brenton and Jude want you to know that that donations beyond what they need will be shared with other fire survivors."
