Southern CA Fires: We're Okay
Some of you are undoubtedly hearing reports about the wild fires in Southern CA, particularly in the San Diego area. Thank you to all of you who called or emailed to check on us and make sure we're safe. Here's what's going on with us and how you can be praying.
1. Many of our church friends live in areas that are being evacuated. Pray for safety and a sense of calm as they evacuate.
2. The air quality is HORRIBLE. I and many of my CF friends in the area are going to have to be very careful not to go outside too much. Fires tend to dislodge spores, such as aspergillus, which is one of the things I'm severely allergic too. Pray that my allergy medication will do its job, and that I won't experience a set-back as a result of poor air quality.
3. Please pray for the volunteers from our church who are headed out to Qualcomm stadium tonight to assist in the relief effort of evacuees. Pray that their generosity and strength of spirit will minister to those who are frightened, hurting, and on the verge of losing things they hold dear.
I'll update again as necessary. Thanks again for your concerns and prayers.
It is good to hear from you and to know that you are safe. I pray that it continues so.
