B.C. Wildfires

Please join us in praying for those affected by the Shovel Lake wildfire in B.C., which is among the largest of more than 540 fires throughout the province. Please pray for the hundreds of people who have been forced to evacuate their homes, as well as the firefighters and emergency response teams that are working around the clock to get the situation under control. The people of Nadleh Whuten First Nation in Fort Fraser, B.C., are particularly affected – the fire is burning close to their area and has damaged their berry crops and hunting grounds. CBM’s Indigenous Relations Specialist, Chery Bear, is from the Nadleh Whut’en community and currently has family members in the area. While elders and children have evacuated, others have stayed behind to help fight the fire. Please pray for their health, safety and emotional well-being, as this has taken a toll on community members. May God provide them with his abiding comfort and peace.
