This afternoon one of our caring volunteer drivers pulled away from our Nashville warehouse, with another 53′ trailer full of the basic needs a family would have after a disaster. This shipment is headed for Santa Rosa, CA and the Rincon Valley Church of Christ. The leadership there requested the trailer to be at their building early Monday morning so members could unload it, and that’s what our driver is hoping to be able to do.
We pray for all those that lost their homes due to these massive fires. There were 12 fires burning in Northern California and 3 Northeast of Sacramento are now 100% contained. The Tubbs Fire in Napa and Sonoma Counties nearest to Santa Rosa is 92% contained, and the Nuns Fire further south in Sonoma County is 82% contained. Rain was in the forecast for today, so we pray that will help to control these many fires in the area. 42 have lost their lives, but another 53 remain missing in Sonoma County. We pray for the teams of firefighters and for those searching for those that have been reported missing .
