This is the story of a collection of people who follow Jesus. We live in Littleton. We encounter people in the name of Jesus, we allow Jesus to turn us into disciples, we gather often, and we equip people to love and serve other people better.

Subject: Wildfire - Flood Volunteers & Support Needed
Samaritan's Purse is helping families who are victims of deadly wildfires in Colorado and New Mexico, as well as massive flooding in northern Minnesota. "It was like looking at a military invasion," said Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, after flying over the fire that exploded into neighborhoods across Colorado Springs yesterday. More than 32,000 Colorado Springs residents were evacuated, including families and military personnel at the United States Air Force Academy. One person has died and over 500 homes have been destroyed by fires in Colorado and New Mexico. Powerful winds and temperatures above 100 degrees have hampered firefighting efforts.
As the flames are extinguished, Samaritan's Purse works in the Name of Jesus to minister to families whose homes have been damaged or destroyed, helping them salvage precious keepsakes, clearing debris, and comforting them in their time of loss. While the inferno in Colorado Springs continues to rage out of control, Samaritan's Purse already has Disaster Relief Units on the ground in Fort Collins, Colorado, and Ruidoso, New Mexico. The High Park Fire near Fort Collins has burned more than 87,000 acres. It is estimated to be 65 percent contained.
Residents Flee Flooding in Minnesota A Disaster Relief Unit is en route to Moose Lake, Minnesota, to help hundreds of residents whose homes were flooded following days of record rainfall. The team will coordinate volunteers to help remove water, mud, and debris from damaged houses.
