This post is an international call to ask you to pray for the people and city of Colorado Springs. My home is about 6 miles away from the fire, but many of my coworkers have been evacuated and are unsure if their homes are still standing.
I work in the US Headquarters of The Navigators on the Glen Eyrie property. Glen Eyrie is very close to where the fire raged out of control last night. My understanding is that ash from the fire started a fire or two on the Glen property, but that the buildings are still in tact.
The high temperatures, lack of rain, as well as the direction and speed of the wind are the three factors that have made the Springs extremely vulnerable to these fires. Please intercede for God to have mercy, to send His gentle rain to extinguish the fires, to protect the more than 1,000 firefighters and half million citizens of our city, to protect Glen Eyrie, to use this tragedy for His glory and draw many people to Himself.
Thank you for your prayers - Rusty Rustenbach
