Update on Black Forest Fire: Colorado Springs
Good news! The Black Forest Fire near Colorado Springs, Colorado is nearly out!
We are now at 75% containment (and it's been burning for nearly a week). The good news: 3,615 homes saved. The bad news: 483 homes totally destroyed and 2 fatalities. 4,100 people remain evacuated from their homes.
Please pray for the fire to cease totally. For rain. For the safety and protection of firefighters. For those who have lost everything...for peace, comfort and provision to begin anew.
Thanks for your prayers!
