Please pray for everyone affected by all of the Colorado wildfires and the hundreds of firefighters and volunteers who are working on the front lines to protect us.

    Thank you so much for posting this. We sponsors care for you and pray for you as our brothers and sisters in Christ.

    I’m sad to hear that some have lost homes and property and I know that evacuating a home is difficult under any circumstance.

    Just sending you all our love, thought and prayers…

    We continue to pray for all of you affected by this fire. May God bring rain, cooler temperatures, and less wind. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help those families who may have lost their home in the fire.

    I have been praying for all of you too. I talked to a very nice lady on the phone today. She sounded so worn out. If there’s any way I can help, I would love too!
