I've been following all your updates here and on FB. Your family and all those affected by these horrible fires continue in my prayers.

Thanks for the update.
 
That is good news for your parents.
 
Prayers will, most certainly, continue.

My parents are home!!!  This is their first night in their home in a week, but they are staying connected to their trailer in case they need to leave again.  The fires are still not out, so this is far from over.  Please keep praying for the fire fighters.

Saturday morning update:
 
There is a new mandatory evacuation near where my parents live. They aren't included, but some good friends who live near my parents are included, and it comes to within half a mile of their place.
 
With winds picking up, there is still plenty of danger. Please keep praying!

Friday night update:
 
The mandatory evacuation for my parents has been lifted!!!!!!!
 
They, along with others, spent all day today sorting the stuff donated to my brother's church so far.  They will be doing it again tomorrow so the church can start distributing stuff on Sunday.
 
The fires around Santa Rosa have almost merged.  High winds still predicted by some people, so the danger is far from over.  Even if the fire is moving away from my parents' house, there are others and other communities in danger.  Please pray they get the fires out soon.

It's late, and I need to get to bed, so tonight's update will be short. (Oh, who am I kidding, but I'm going to try to be brief.)
 
My parents' house is still standing, but they are still under mandatory evacuation. They are doing okay sleeping in their trailer outside a friend's home.
 
The winds have been lower than expected, but they are predicting they will pick up tonight.
 
My brother's church had a special prayer service tonight. The association of churches they are part of wanted to help and had been collecting donations of food, water, and other items. Before their prayer service, these donations showed up - two big rigs and several smaller trucks. And more has been donated that was taken elsewhere.
 
I have had a very hard, rough week at work. Not only am I trying to process all of this from 300 miles away, but it's been our monthly deadline, and it seems like things have been harder than normal. So your notes, messages, and responses to my posts have meant so much. I really appreciate that.
 
There is one thing I want to mention. Barbara Early had a new book this week that I reviewed this morning, and she offered to donate a dollar for every copy of her book sold Thursday and Friday. You will need to e-mail a copy of your receipt to Barb (at) BarbaraEarly (dot) com. Here's a link to the book. https://www.amazon.com/Murder-Toy-Town-Express-Mysteries/dp/1683313097/ref=sr_1_ 1?ie=UTF8&qid=1507872034&sr=8-1&keywords=murder+on+the+toy+town+express
 
It's really a very fun book, and there's even a cameo by someone named Mark Baker in it.  Smiley Truly, it is a cameo, so don't buy it for my name being in it. Buy it because it's a very fun mystery.
 
Please keep praying. The firefighters still have a lot of work to do, so keep them in your prayers as well.

I am so sorry! I haven't been on Facebook much, so am glad to read the update here now. I am so thankful that your family is safe. I hate it that their homes are lost/in danger, but those can at least be replaced. Thanks for the updated and will continue to you, your family and the whole area in my thoughts and prayers!!
