Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

In September, when the sun was hot and my “studio” reached the upper 80s each day, a crew from CBN News came to our rental house and shot video for a story that will air Wednesday, 12/9. It’s a six minute piece that tries to encapsulate our lives in the last 3 years. If you miss it, we’ll have the video on my website, ChrisFabry.com.

A word about how the reporter, Heather Sells, found out about us. Heather’s niece lives in Wheaton, Illinois, and listens to WMBI in Chicago. The niece told her mother that “Aunt Heather” ought to do a story on the Fabrys. Heather began reading my blog and heard some of the radio show and became interested in our journey.

I think the report takes a lot of information and tells the story of our plight pretty well. It gives an overview of what we’ve been through and even shows us walking in the desert. Heather put a lot of work into those six minutes.

Over the past few days I’ve been looking at our bare walls here. There are shots in the video of our home in Colorado. They show how much Andrea put into the house. Her creativity and design abilities surfaced. But now we’re focused on other things than decorating. Things like getting physically well again. Eating well. She spends so much time in the kitchen, preparing meals and lining up the herbs and supplements and juices for the kids, that we don’t have time to hang pictures—plus, we don’t have any pictures. The art work we see is what God is doing in our lives.

I hope you get to see the story. You’ll get a glimpse of our journey and be able to put a face with the voice.

I must add that one lawyer cautioned us not to do this interview. He also said we shouldn’t be blogging or talking on the radio about it. Since we are involved in legal action in Colorado, anything we say or that is said about our situation, can be used against us. To that Andrea and I have said all along, so be it. There is something much bigger in our story than what happened at the house. I really believe the pain and hardship we’ve been through, the things meant to tear us down and that could have destroyed our lives, were meant for ultimate good. If one person can be kept from that kind of experience because of our story, we want to tell the truth in all of its ugly glory.

I hope someone sees our story and wonders, “What makes those people keep going?” It’s because God has given us this experience for a reason, to showcase his strength in weakness. To give hope amid some hopeless days. To know that God is still in control, even though the events that surround us make little sense.

"The art work we see is what God is doing in our lives."

Mmm, well said.

Holy smokes. Not only after reading this but also seeing your 'Home' photo slide show on main site, I'm so blown away by the grace you all have received and shared for us. What grace!
Thank you, brother, for sharing it all with us; both the bad, ugly junk that the Enemy wants, so desperately, for us to concentrate on versus the Awesomeness and Freedom that is from our God as a precious blood-bought gift.

Amen amen amen. May God continue to work in you and through you all in His most mighty and loving way. May your story be a help and blessing to many. What He does in one family is always meant to ripple out to others. So Fabry family, ripple on!

I'm impressed with your courage to tell your story even while pursuing it through the system in Colorado. "So be it." That's pretty selfless to put everyone else's interests above your own. And to hope....."maybe they'll ask how we've survived this...."

I have been listening to you and have been blessed by you for sometime now. God is an awesome God bigger than our biggest problems and has solutions and blessings that we cannot even imagine. Keep on Keepin on, I love how you love God, your family, and the souls of the people that you touch. Pastor Judi Baxter
