I watched the fires on TV and had all of the families in my prayers. The devastation as shown in your video is almost beyond belief. I will put all of you on our Team Prayer List and we will continue to pray for you. Your video is very inspiring. The attitude you have shows how much care and concern you have for your fellow friends and neighbors. I am glad that your home was spared. Again, I appreciate you sharing your feelings in such a sincere way.

Super video Gordon and the fact that the fire jumped over your house was an amazing blessing in all that destruction around you. I do believe in the faith you have too and there is a rebirth for those that lost so much, so a blessing somewhat in disguise for them.

Very touching video.  Why did God spare you house and not others?  We may never know, but I do believe that he has blessings in store for all those who are faithful to him, even if they endure fiery trials. Who knows, maybe he kept your home safe so you could be all the stronger for others.
