THE FIRE UPSTAIRS
The minor electrical fire in the apartment upstairs in the wee small hours of Dec 18, did not seriously affect the store. A small amount of water dripped down and affected 2 cardboard boxes and 1 computer printer. I can't even smell any smoke.
PRAISE TO GOD & the FIRE DEPT
If not for the alertness of Champaign Fire Dept personnel, who happened to be driving past about 3 AM, and noticed smoke coming from an attic vent, the damage would have been much greater. They extinguished the fire before it did more than damage a few ceiling rafters on the top floor. Of course the ceiling upstairs and some furniture were damaged, but if the fire had burned any longer it would have damaged the roof, and the amount of water needed to contain it would have caused damage downstairs. I want to thank the Fire Dept for their quick action and thank God(How often are Firemen passing by in the middle of the night at just the right time to detect a fire before it burns through someting? It had to be the grace of God).

I'm glad you found my website. I have an unshakable faith in God and our Lord Jesus Christ. I know that God is with us at all times, even when it's not apparent. I know that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and yours. No sin is too terrible that the blood of Jesus doesn't wash us clean. All you have to do is repent of your sins and ask Jesus to be your Lord & Savior.
Today my faith in God and in His Son Jesus is strong, but it hasn't always been like that. I had no idea of what God was really like, or whether He even existed when I was growing up. I came to a saving knowledge and faith in Jesus and Father God when I was 29 years old. my faith
Jesus said "no one comes to the Father except through me" Many people say there are many ways to heaven, but that isn't what God's word says. Christ died for my & your sins, and rose from the dead so that we might have Eternal Life. Do you have eternal life yet? If you're not sure, this page from Pacific Garden Mission may help
