Thank you Pappy84 for sending this out!! You may have heard about the
fires burning in our state, there are two, both human caused. They were
about 8 miles apart but now have merged. This has already burned three
small towns in North Eastern Arizona.. This area is primarily made up of
retirement folks with a mix of people who have summer homes there...and
then families who have lived there all of their lives.
Tonight...they had to evacuate the entire town of Showlow...this amounts
to 30,000 people who had to leave their homes...not knowing when they
will be allowed to return...or if they will have anything to return to.
Yesterday, one of the Chiefs from the Navajo Reservation made an
announcement that their people will begin to do their rain dances around
the clock....as this is about the only thing that will save that part of
our state. At the present time, 160,000 acres have burned. If you
wouldn't mind, do you think you could send a letter out to those people
that you know who would please pray with us about this fire? Prayer and
a miracle is what we need now.
Also, we aren't just talking about people who are in that area....but
animals...hundreds of horses and farm animals as well as the people who
had their house pets.
The big race track down here in Phoenix sent horse trailers up to try
and rescue some of the horses...and will house them at the track FREE
all summer long...
The Humane Society has already run out of space for the cats and
dogs..now people here in Phx. are taking them into their own homes. The
patients from the hospitals and nursing homes had to be transfered to
Phoenix...it must be very frightening for those folks. It is totally
impossible to get into the town of Showlow as all the roads leading into
and out of are closed... I sat here tonight thinking about the magnitude
of what is happening and we are only talking about a town of 30,000 just
think how it would have been if the town had been a larger one. I think
about ALL the businesses that had to just close and lock up....and then
PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS AND PASS ON TO FRIENDS AND PRAYER GROUPS IF
YOU GET A CHANCE
