    As the president of a LCMS congregation here in Colorado (St. Luke’s, Golden), I know our congregation will be contributing toward relief for our neighbors as we and many other congregations did last year following the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs. There are more than a dozen large wildfires in Colorado at this time and the fire season is just starting. We will do what we can locally but the need is going to be great. For those that are in areas that are not affected by such natural disasters I extend a personal plea to you and your congregations to do what you can to assist your LCMS brothers and sisters now and over the rest of what looks like will be a long, long summer. And do not for get others in other states suffering with fire, flooding, tornados and other natural disasters. There are many but each small bit of assistance helps greatly. Thank you.

    The West Fork Complex fire has burned 80,000 acres and effected members in 3 LCMS congregations and 2 Preaching Stations. (Alamosa, Creede, Lake City, Monte Vista, Pagosa Springs) It seems likely that former Pastor Bryan Cary has lost his cabin. Prayers are appreciated
