Our brother nearly gave his life protecting his wife & daughter. Please help this little family put their lives back together ♥

♥ ♥ ♥ Happy Valentine's Day... it's our LAST day, will have a final update this evening! ♥ ♥ ♥

On January 8th, in Flagstaff, AZ, during the early morning hours something happened that will forever change our family.

An attacker broke into the home of our sister, her husband, Juston, and their 8 month old daughter while they slept. Without fear or hesitation Juston chased and fought the attacker in his home, saving the lives of his family.

He fought with nothing but his fists and determination to protect them.

...He suffered 11 stab wounds but never relented until the attacker fled. He is a hero, and we are grateful the Lord was watching over them that night! He is recovering and they are safe but they now face a rough road ahead.

They are a very young family and just starting off. He won't be able to work for a while so now they have to live on her income alone. Find a new apartment, on-going medical treatment, bills, child care, putting their life back together ... it can be overwhelming when combined with the emotional strain of the situation.

While they are are grateful for local services that help cover and negotiate many of the initial medical costs, there is SO much more for them to face over the coming months.

The suspect has yet to be caught and the fear can really be overwhelming. Every small sound as you lay in bed makes you jump. Each person you pass by, makes you double take. But the prayers and encouragement have really helped in so many ways. For them to be lifted up and embraced by their neighbors gives them a sense of safety which is SO very precious at a time like this.

So as their family, we are reaching out and ask you to help in any way you can. We send a plea to our family, our friends. To our neighbors in the Flagstaff community. A community that has done wonderful and amazing things for those in need. Even a small donation helps, and together we all can make a difference in the lives of their little family.

If you have any questions, or suggestions please contact our family at
