Colorado Wildfires - Summer 2013

Colorado's latest wildfires will not affect Andrew's Summer Family Bible Conference scheduled for July 1-5, 2013. (Click to enlarge)As many readers are aware, wildfires have sprung up again in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas. While these fires have taken center stage across Colorado's news and social media outlets, we wanted to assure those of you planning to attend this year's Summer Family Bible Conference that the event will be held as planned, and the schedule for July 1-5 remains unchanged.

The fire in the Colorado Springs area, known as the Black Forest Fire, is burning nearly 20 miles north and east of the Pikes Peak Center, the location of this year's conference in downtown Colorado Springs. The other wildfires burning across the region are more than 40 and 60 miles south and southwest of the conference location. None of these fires pose a direct threat to the downtown Colorado Springs area or the conference at this time.

Several of Andrew's staff members and their families have been directly affected by the fires and have been safely evacuated from the area; please keep them in your prayers.

Some people think that these fires are God's judgment upon all the liberalism in Colorado. San Francisco better be on the look out next week for an earthquake, according to some.
