Tonight I am thinking of my many friends in Kansas and Oklahoma. There are yet again large grass fires that are threatening ranches and homes in the border areas.
This year there is a big fire north of Woodward and east of Laverne.
The big fire to the south of Woodward is known as the Rhea fire and is close to 250,000 acres. These are very large and destructive fires.
I have friends that live in the Woodward/Mooreland area. So far they are not affected, but I am praying for them.
Last year some close family friends lost their homes in Englewood, Kansas. I have tears in my eyes as I also remember my friend Monty who lost his home in the fire and later passed away while they were rebuilding. See: Zane Grey Memories
Monty’s parents are shown in the screenshot above. They have rebuilt, but it has been tough.
Keep the people affected by the Oklahoma fires in your prayers as they are very devastating and the recovery process takes a long time.
