August has been filled with wildfires and smoke all across the Northwest. Please pray for everyone affected in these areas. While our specific location has not yet been directly threatened, neighboring areas have. Each day we keep watch to see how existing fires are spreading, and whether there are new ones. Some days the smoke has been thick and ash has covered everything. As you can see in the snapshot below of the current wildfires, Washington State has really been devastated. The graphic shows eastern Washington, northern Idaho and northwest Montana. For a larger view, click on the image. Please keep us all in your prayers as we endure this time of year.
