Walking in Love.
Friend’s of the Helbig’s have created this site to raise consistent, monthly support for Krystal so that she can be free to care for her 6 children and dedicate herself to care for Paul as his needs grow in battling Multiple Sclerosis. If just 100 people gave only $50 a month, Krystal would have the opportunity to stay home and not need to find work that takes her away from her family.
Hundreds, if not thousands of people have been affected by the life and ministry of the Helbig’s. Their spiritual children and grand-children are probably too many to number. Krystal has especially embodied what the Apostle Peter calls “a gentle and quiet spirit” as she has selflessly dedicated herself to loving and raising her 6 children and supporting Paul. Her example both from her life and her discipleship of young women has encouraged dozens of women to love Jesus with their whole heart, pray for anything and everything and wait with full faith to see God respond. Now in this testing season, those of us who have learned from her can be a part of God’s provision for her.
This is an incredible opportunity to respond in generous gratitude for the years of spiritual mothering we have all received.
Paul’s form of Multiple Sclerosis has gone from relapsing/remitting to progressive which means that it continues to affect more parts of the body in more ways, more frequently and with more severity. Currently, Paul is almost wheelchair bound, lives with limited mobility, spasticity, muscle inflammation, tremors, sleeping difficulty, dizziness, and nausea. As MS continues Paul will be at greater risk for osteoporosis, getting pressure sores, pneumonia, bladder and kidney infections and aspiration. Paul’s need for physical care will likely increase over time. Our hope is that Krystal will be free to care for any needs without adding the pressure of bringing in additional income.
In addition to caring for Paul’s physical needs, Krystal manages doctor and specialist visits and extensive phone calls with insurance companies. She is also a mom to 6 children, 4 of whom are still living at home, 1 in college and 1 grown son who just had his first baby; this is a full-time job in and of itself.
It is likely they will need to make a decision about future modifications to remodel their existing home or buying a new home to optimize as much control and independence for Paul as possible. Support from this site can ease the anxiety of those challenges and changes.
Being a full time caregiver will require every mental, emotional and physical capacity Krystal has and respite care will be necessary. Quality respite care ensures that both Paul and Krystal will be supported. Funds raised from this site can provide that kind of care.
As Paul and Krystal have so generously given to our spiritual need, let’s return their gracious gift and answer their physical need as a resounding “thank you” and affirmation for pouring out their lives for our benefit.

We want you to know, brothers, about the grace of God that has been given among the churches of Macedonia, for in a severe test of affliction, their abundance of joy and their extreme poverty have overflowed in a wealth of generosity on their part. – 2 Corinthians 8:1-2 (ESV)
