Little Flowers Family Press in Need of Support After Devastating Fire
edit_button

In a very sad piece of news, I have learned that Little Flowers Family Press has suffered a devastating fire. The horrific house fire has destroyed their 17yr old traditional catholic publishing business. The family barely got out with their lives and has a tremendous amount of work to rebuild.

From a local news story:
(Updated on July 24, 2013) Lanark Highlands Business Tourism Association is passing along unfortunate news. One of our members, Little Flowers Family Press, experienced a devastating fire on Friday morning and the family’s home and business has been destroyed. Rita and Mark Davidson and their four boys escaped without harm, but they lost everything in the blaze. Rita is also a member of the LHBTA volunteer board.

Located at 2988 Elphin-Maberly Road (in the former Elphin General Store), the fire consumed everything from personal items to their vehicle. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
Anyone wanting to donate immediately, can do so at any Scotiabank, noting that they want to contribute to the Davidson Trust.

Also, please visit the “Our Community Cares” Facebook page (click here) and request to join to learn more about what items are still needed by the family.

The following is taken directly from the family:
My friends it is with a heavy heart beyond words, I share that we lost our home, our business, our entire livelihood last Friday (July 19th 2013) with a fire.

We barely got out with our lives. Just 45 min later our entire house was done. We are thankful God found reason to spare us and our 4 boys, three with autism. The devil was mighty upset for our work i guess.

I’m hope you don’t mind my posting this and asking for your prayers and support. We had no insurance and rebuilding our lives will be a huge job. Rebuilding ‘Little Flowers Family Press’ will be an even larger job. But, if God wills it, this won’t be the last from us.

As we try to make sense of our life, we cling to God, who is our ‘all’ now that all our earthly possessions have been stripped away. In His mercy, He has saved us from destruction, for a purpose.
Please find it within your heart to join their Facebook Page and offer any help that you may be able to offer them.  Prayers are needed.
