OUR FRIENDS CHERISE & GORDON SELLEY NEED YOUR PRAYERS!

OUR FRIENDS CHERISE & GORDON SELLEY NEED YOUR PRAYERS!

Active Rain Family, our fellow bloggers Cherise & Gordon Selley who live in Colorado Springs are in a dire situation. Their home is in the neighborhood of the Flying W Ranch where hundreds of homes were lost due to the fires. I just got off of the phone with both of them and thankfully they are both safe as well as their son.

They believe that their home may have been miraculously spared from the fire but won't know more until later this evening or tomorrow. The do know that every home just behind them are all completely gone! The devastation is beyond words. Through it all, they both are maintaining their tremendous faith and are assuredly going to be beacons of light for their community as they will rebuild their lives, their homes and their community.

Hearing them describe the horrific scenes was unbelievable.  The word Apocalyptic kept coming up and when you watch the video above, you can see why.  The people of this city are numb with this event.  Gordon said that over 350 homes have been lost as well as a great number of commercial buildings . He does believe that their office was spared as well.

Please take a moment to say a prayer for all of the people in this area.  Pray for safety and for the containment of this fire. Pray for them as they rebuild.  Gordon and Cherise were some of the first people that I connected with here on Active Rain. When I was going through my own fire with a major health crisis, they were my rock solid prayer partners.  It is now my turn to be their rock.  As an Active Rain community, we can rally around the Selley's and the many others who are going through this tragedy.
