This is a forest fire approximately 5 miles SW of our ranch. The fire is officially called the High Chateau Fire. It’s consumed 1400+ acres and, at noon today, is o% contained. We received a mandatory evacuation order at 8 p.m. Saturday.  We are safe, in town with friends. Praying for all those fighting the fire and all those in the fire’s path. Lord have mercy! I trust He will never leave us or forsake us!

This is from the LWML’s Vice President of Organizational Resources , our old friend from North Dakota that moved to Colorado, Debbie Larson.  I used to live in Colorado and moved back home to North Dakota.  If I have my geography correct, I used to pick Pinion Pine nuts around this spot.  Our prayers are with her and her family and friends.  She organized her resources so that she could witness to Jesus in the midst of a scary situation.
