here we go again...

Kyle Kuiper's pic from last night...

Sara Brown's pic from our yard...

It started last night @ dinner during a lightning storm... several fires throughout the property... Brandon left to help... Lu spotted fire on the hill across the street while playing outside (wierd night)... B came back @ 12 thinking it was under control... left again @2 am to put out a new fire near Creekside... came back @4:30 am, slept till 6.... went back out to fight em till 11 am... slept some more then was going to head into work thinking the danger was gone.... ended up being called back out... fire nearing A-frames behind the ropes course (behind staff village... aka our house)... he's been gone since but just dropped by a few minutes ago (10:00 pm) to get mexican chicken salad... and back out to keep at it till who knows when. He said he has more perspective this go round.. even though it came, and may still be eerily close, he feels the buildings are not in danger with the attention we would be able to give them... nevertheless they are working very hard. Fire isn't a friend out here for sure. I'll keep you updated but it's not looking like there will be a need to evacuate as of now.It still all feels a little scary. Please pray with us! Pray for all those guys energy and stength, wisdom and protection. Thanks!

this is just after Lu spotted it on the hill... before Sara or Kyle's pic (a little hard to see, but there's a cute boy in this one :)
