Fire Links

We have been experiencing an unprecedented amount of fires in the west this summer.  Even our homes are filled with smoke at this time, and many homes have been damaged throughout Montana, Wyoming and other states.  We need to pray strongly for rain to put these fires out; it seems to be the only answer for such wide-spread problems.  In addition, we want to remember those who have lost everything.  Below are some links I would suggest for donating to the cause:

It’s really sad to read this report from Montana.  She says, “We are in a huge mess over here. Devastation everywhere & the fire is all around us out here in Lolo. Most of Lolo is either evacuated or on warning. Please help if you can. Thank you.”  Here is where you can help these families:

In addition, I want to honor these brave firefighters that have died this summer alone in Montana:

Brent Witham, 29

Trenton Johnson, 19

All fire-related deaths across the nation

We certainly owe a huge “Thank You” to these men and women that continually lay their lives down for us!

Here is a map of current fires in Montana and Idaho:

This is a story about a local fire that has been very close to Sheridan, WY:

Sheridan County Fire

Earlier this summer local firefighters were battling 17 fires at once.

So let’s keep praying and giving for those in need…the summer of fires is not yet over!
