The Waldo Canyon wildfire west of Colorado Springs is growing in size and scope and has reached the west side of the city. The Navigators corporate headquarters, Glen Eyrie Conference Center, and Eagle Lake Camp are located in these areas, and have been evacuated for a couple days. The HQ and Glen Eyrie have been safe thusfar, Eagle Lake has sustained some unknown damage. 12,000 people in western Colorado Springs neighborhoods have been evacuated. Some homes have started burning in the last couple hours, and it has gone from a nuisance to destructive tragedy in a matter of hours.
Please pray for the city of Colorado Springs and all the firefighters and emergency workers. Please pray for those who have lost their homes, many Nav staff live in the evacuated areas. And please please pray for the protection of the Navigator properties listed above.
The Navigators are posting updates a couple times a day or more atwww.navigators.org . You can follow along with news coverage at http://www.kktv.com/video/live.
Thank you for praying.

"As we adjust to the challenges of this very difficult time, we may reach for the comfort of Scripture. Our Leadership Team reminds us of this passage: 'Great is the Lord, and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.' ~Psalm 145:3 & 4"
