We sure thanked God for our feast this season. After returning from our trip, Jim Jr. (Carl) and I found that we were in for the ride of our lives.
And we'd just covered over 3200 miles!
Seems the fires here in California really socked it to our California members. No one lost a home (THANK YOU LORD!) but there was enough evacuation and clean-up to go around.
The only casuality was the new P2P Centre.
I'm sorry to report that the New Institute Of Puppet Play Productions (the P2P Centre) is beyond repair. We were finally able to access the damage, and it is basically burnt to the ground, along with most of the other homes and building north of Mt. Baldy Village.
For all of you who put your backbones into building this centre, who believed it what we were trying to do there, who valued it as a meeting ground of Faith, and a testing ground for Puppet Plays -- we thank you.
Believe it or not, we'll be back. I know that this dream is too strong to die.
Thank you for your kind prayers.
