Aaron and Maggie Davis serve in ministry at Camp Trinity: The Lutheran Camp on Petit Jean Mountain in Arkansas. For four years, they have lived with their five children in camp housing on site. Recently, the camp’s home was found to have toxic mold behind the shower wall. Due to the age of the home, and a long list of other needed repairs, the camp board has decided to create a campaign to replace the mobile home.
The Davis family has had to move out of their home at Camp Trinity into temporary housing offsite for their health and safety. While living in camp housing, the family was exposed to the toxic mold growing behind the shower wall. Due to this exposure, one of their five children has become very sick.
Her symptoms were a medical mystery until the mold was discovered. Since then, the family has tested the home to better understand the severity of the situation. Given the results they received from testing and the sensitivity of their daughter, they’ve made the tough decision to part with the material contents within their home.
Renters insurance will not cover this type of catastrophic loss. Generally, toxic mold from one acute event will be covered by insurance, but toxic mold acquired over months or years is denied because the insurance company cannot be sure the damage occurred within the time of the active policy.
Christian friends, this family is in need of help. They need financial support to replace the contents of their home. They need financial support as they seek care and treatment for their daughter. They need our prayers. Though they remain steadfast in their faith, this is a dark and frightening path to walk. The family is currently trusting in God’s power and provision as they hold on to verses like Ephesians 3:20-21, which reads, “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever! Amen.” To read more of the Davis’ story, see www.realfoodrealhealing.com/toxic-mold-stories-the-davis-family
