Southern California (mainly San Diego) as most of you know has been battling many wild fires that have allready destroyed more than 1500 homes. On monday morning we were ordered to evacuate from our home in Carmel Valley. It was all to sureal knowing that as we were leaving our house there was a possibility that it would be the last time we would ever see our home. It is now Wednesday and we have been allowed to return to our home. I thank God for his mercy and grace and for protecting our neighborhood. We know that the fire could have easily come our way if the winds had shifted in our direction. Sadly, may San Diegans are without a home tonight and must start their lives over again (from a material point of view).
Overall it has been amazing to see how awesome San Diegans came together to help each other. The supplies and aid that are available for more than a million people displaced and ordered to evacuate has been incredible. The good news is that more moisture is coming into the air causing the humidity to climb higher. Also, this weekend is supposed to bring fog which will further help in calming down the fires.
Please pray for San Diegans without homes and for the brave men and women who are fighting the fires, including law enforcement and medical practitioners.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze." Isaiah 43:2
