Dear Friends
I need you to pray for my friend Jamie J today. She lives in San Diego and fires have sprung up about 3 miles from her home. She will probably have to evacuate. And while you're at it, pray for everyone who is close to a wild fire down here. There are a lot of them burning in Southern California right now. And they are destroying homes. If I understand correctly, one person has died. You see, we get these crazy winds down here. They call them The Santa Ana winds and they are not the nice cool fall breezes that most of you experience this time of year. They are hot and dry and unpredictable. And they make fighting fires extremely difficult. Anyway, keep these families (especially Jamie) and our firefighters in your prayers. Thanks...

How scary! Thanks for letting us know so we can have your friend and everyone else affected in our prayers. I know what a sympathetic soul you are - you must be so stressed out by this! ~hugs~

I will certainly pray for your friend and all the other people who are having to deal with the fires. The Santa Ana winds can be scary.

Oh my goodness, that's one thing I don't miss down there! How scary. Is there ash falling from the skis right now? Does it feel like the apacolypse? Definately keep them in our prayers, E
