Church Family and Friends — please pray for Idyllwild and the surrounding communities. Pray for all the firefighters, pilots who are flying, first responders, and all who are affected by this devastating fire. According to news reports, a suspected arson fire (Cranston Fire) is only 5% contained as the writing of this post and many people, including those in Idyllwild, have been evacuated. People, homes, and property, as well as our beloved town of Idyllwild, are in harm’s way. But we believe in prayer. As believers, we know that life is often hard, but God is good. We take comfort in knowing that He works all things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose, no matter what happens along life’s way. Pastor Mark, Tina, and family have all evacuated and are safe. Thank you for continuing to pray.
