We have been asked to take over leadership of a 10-state region for Campers On Mission. We are currently in Louisiana, having just left the National Campers On Mission rally. We will travel through as many of our region’s states as possible before returning home (not Alaska!) to try to raise awareness of Campers On Mission and the many other opportunities available to those who want to be On Mission. Pray for His will and His glory in our lives, as well as His provision for us to do this task.
We have set up the Incident Command for the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief at the High Park Fire area, after spending a week doing mass feeding in Colorado Springs. The High Park response will be much longer, because many of the remote homes in this area were not insured. We expect to have teams from many states here, for a few months, cleaning debris out of burned homesites. There is a team from Oklahoma here providing support for Incident Command and assessment volunteers. We are doing intake interviews and assessments of properties, and expect to begin Chainsaw team work and fire clean up this coming week. Please pray for the volunteers as well as those affected by the fire.
