Beyond our giving of time and money, we as a church pray for those affected. We know that God will provide for them. We also pray for the volunteers, the firefighters and those who help for perseverance and strength. In these tough times we know that God will be our strength and lead us to his will for what’s next in our lives.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 2 Cor. 12:9
