Please pray for a priest whose a family friend of ours. He lives in Bell Canyon (Southern California), which is a few miles from the fires, & has been given "optional evacuation" orders. The surrounding canyons are now under "mandatory evacuation" orders. He & his matushka are packing up their icons, personal possessions, & pets. Their house is located about 5 miles from the only entrance, exit of the canyon.
Please pray for Fr. Alexander & his family.
