Two weeks ago, Ryan Stevenson and his band wrapped up the final night of their West Coast tour, tucked in for the night, and when they woke up, they discovered everything was gone.
In a note shared to Facebook, Ryan writes, "Our van and trailer was stolen during the night from a hotel parking lot while we were asleep. We lost literally everything, and none of our insurances are covering the loss....I've had a very heavy heart, and have been embarrassed and discouraged about this ordeal. I haven't said anything publicly, as I've been waiting on the final outcome of the insurance. Sacramento Police finally found the van & trailer, but both had been totally stripped, and in separate locations. No property was recovered at all!"
While insurance won't cover the loss, Ryan's home church, Vertical Church, has rallied around him.
"My home church back in Boise, ID has stepped up, and has offered to host an online giving link to help help us recover from this massive setback. If you feel led to donate online," Ryan asks, "you can do so by following this link. All donations are tax deductible. Thanks so much for your prayers and support, and thanks for sharing this link!! Again, I'm so grateful for any and all support."
Ryan's church, Vertical Church, adds that "100% of funds donated will go directly to Ryan and his team. If the need is met, all additional funds will be donated to Ryan’s tour partner, Bethany Christian Services. All donations are tax-deductible, you will receive a charitable donation statement in January of 2020."
