I want to encourage you all to pray for others who are experiencing devastation at this same time:  fires in Los Angeles; torrential rain in northern India, southern Nepal, northern Bangladesh and southern Pakistan; bush fires in Australia, and so much more!  Many are suffering.

Pray for everyone!  Pack your backpack and go help, if you can! Give money if you are able!  Let’s show the world what the Love of Christ looks like!

Well, what do you think?
