The latest report is that, barring a rising wind, the fires in East Texas are contained. Not out. Just contained.
30,000 acres burned to a cinder in Marion County alone. Many homes, barns, fields and pastures now dry, black, and smoking. A 20 yr. old woman and her 18 month old baby dead in Smith County.
Other parts of our country are flooded. Texas needs rain desperately.
Thank you for prayers for the safety of our loved ones. Please continue to pray for rain, so that the still-blistering ground can cool down, and some of the ashes be washed away.
