THE FOREST FIRES IN SOUTHWESTERN NORTH CAROLINA has been raging for two weeks.  Many people have had to evacuate their homes.  The air is filled with a dense smoke and the lake is being drained of its water as firefighters from all over the USA including Alaska and Puerto Rico try to contain the blaze which has spread through thousands of acres of land.  At present, the fire is somewhat contained but the drought continues to have everyone praying for rain.  North Georgia is also affected by these fires.  The Clay County fire department distributed masks to all residents to filter the smoky air.  Anyone with asthma or other breathing difficulties is encouraged to stay indoors.  Sisters Terry Martin and Margarita Castaneda are safe so far from the blaze.  We ask you to join us in prayer for the safety of the firefighters who are still here after two weeks of fighting the fires.  We also ask for prayers for the safety of the residents in the mountains and please PRAY FOR RAIN.  Thank you all for your prayers and may this Thanksgiving be a blessed one of each one of you.
