In our first post about the fire burning in the Colorado Springs area, known as the Black Forest Fire, we made direct reference to the fact that the fire does not pose any threat to the upcoming Summer Family Bible Conference. This post was to assure those families traveling from around the world to attend the conference, that the scheduled festivities will take place as planned. Since the first post on June 12, several of our ministry friends and partners have expressed concern with regard to the fire's proximity to the Andrew Wommack Ministries headquarters, the current Charis Bible College campus, and the new campus under construction in Woodland Park. All of these facilities are well out of harm's way.
The Black Forest Fire is burning far to the northeast of all AWM and CBC properties. The ministry is not in any danger, and as mentioned in the previous post, the fire is not near the Pikes Peak Center, the location of this year's conference in downtown Colorado Springs.
In addition, Andrew's new Association of Related Ministries International Conference, scheduled for June 19-21, will be held as planned at the AWM headquarters on Elkton Drive in the Springs.
While the ministry and its events have not been directly impacted by the wildfire, several staff and their families are among the more than 30,000 people that have been displaced by the Black Forest Fire. Please keep these families and the crews fighting the fire, in your prayers.
For those with Colorado Springs area lodging reservations for the summer conference, please contact your individual hotel, motel or campground for specifics on how the fire may be affecting your accommodations.
