vikenI had the privilege of preaching in Hesperia California at Faith Lutheran church and talking about Project 24 a few years back thanks to Pastor Brad Viken who used to be at Immanuel in Grand Forks.  Hesperia is in San Bernadino Co in what is called the High Desert.  The so called Blue Cut fire on El Cajon Pass has brought a lot of evacuees into that town.  Pastor Viken posted this picture and these words.

“Fires are still crazy. Prayers encouraged. Several from the church are evacuated but no injured and among our church family there have been no structures lost. Several stranded away from home. Faith Lutheran church will gather today for those available from 3-6 for fellowship, games etc. at 5 pm we will eat pizza. At 6 pm we will gather in the sanctuary for a prayer service. Join us if you can.”

Lord Have Mercy.
