HELP IN A TIME OF NEED for Beyond The Ashes...
Nashville, TN (August 4th, 2011) – There are so many precious servants of GOD with so many needs. In turn, all of us, even those who are in need themselves, can do something to help someone else. It may be prayer. What a valuable commodity that is...! It may be a donation to a financial need that is bigger than people, but not too big for God.
For those who hadn't heard, group members and road crew of the vocal trio, were awakened in the middle of the night this past weekend by a bus fire, while parked and asleep for the night in the WALMART parking lot in Marshfield, MO. The bus, an MCI tour bus, and its contents are severely damaged, but everyone in the bus miraculously escaped without injury. The group has learned that, while the bus itself is insured, all of the contents were not. This presents an overwhelming financial loss and creates a hinderance in their ability to continue ministering as they had before this fire. With that, would you consider what you are able to do to help Beyond The Ashes get beyond this loss and be able to reach more hearts with the love of Jesus through their music and ministry. Maybe you can pray. Quite possibly you can give (even a small amount or maybe a large amount). Whatever you can do, we are appreciative of your help and enocuragement.

Here are more details to the incident last weekend:
Close friend and ministry advisor, Dusty Wells, was traveling with the group. He expressed that he awoke to the smell of smoke. He feels sure that God woke him from His sleep. He was able to get everyone safely off the bus. Road manager, Rob Estep, immediately called 911. The fire department arrived quickly to extinguish the fire and check on the health of the bus' occupants.
Anthony Facello (group's founder and tenor singer) shares, "We are grateful beyond words for GOD's protection over us through this very scary and emotional experience. We have, once again, seen His Hand of faithfulness to us. Certainly the name of this group, Beyond The Ashes, takes on a more powerful meaning than ever today. Although we know we face serious challenges as a result of the physical losses associated with this event, we are overwhelmingly glad to be safe and well, and we are trusting God through this trial. Please remember us in prayer as we work through the details of the situation. A special thanks to every one for your words of encouragement and your prayers."
