California Wildfires The Battle Continues

Current Events

"The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit." 

We Are California Strong


The 2018 California wildfires are a series of wildfires that have burned across the state of California during 2018. A total of 7,299 fires had burned an area of 1,548,814 acres, according to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection and the National Interagency Fire Center, as of October 29. 


The fires we are experiencing this week is adding to the devastation. Our resolve and sense of community is being tested like never before.  It is times like these that you witness what a community is made of.  In all of our despair let's remember to the LOOK FOR THE HELPERS and BE THE CHANGE we so desperately need right now.
