Mountain Top Update

We value and need your continued prayers...

This whole fire ordeal has been like a roller coaster in that reports are up and down - we continue to experience the results of a wildfire being unpredictable.

At night fall last evening (Friday) we felt the fires on MTYC property were under control. This means that the visible flames of the moving line of fire were out and we had some what of a make shift fire break (hand dug/raked line) around the fire area. This left "hot spots" (areas still
burning, but not advancing). The fire official's game plan last evening was to reinforce the fire breaks and start working the interior hot spots.

Unfortunately the winds rekindled the fires near our cliffs. The fire had burned up to the left side of our cliffs before being "contained", at least not actively advancing. Praise the Lord for the rain - pray for more!

Where the fire now burns on our side of the mountain is only accessible by foot and there is no good water source.

Pray for wisdom for the fire fighters. Also, pray for their strength as this battle is now into the fourth day. Pray for the winds to cease - this poses one of the worse threats.

MTYC is not in immediate danger - although the unpredictable fires still burn.

The Lord is answering prayer. What takes man so long - God can do with a rain shower. Mark 10:27 - With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.

Thank you for your calls, voice mails and email - they are not a bother, but rather a great encouragement - please understand if we are not able to respond in a timely manner in light of the situation.

God is protecting MTYC!
