We Need Your Prayers

Last night a major winter storm passed through Prescott and much of Arizona. The camp has sustained much damage from this storm, and we need your prayers as we decide how to proceed.

* The Dining Hall roof was damaged when a tree fell on it due to the heavy winds and the weight of the snow. Currently the tree is still on the roof, so we have not been able to ascertain the extent of the damage. We know several beams were broken and branches have come through the ceiling into the main part of the dining hall. Tomorrow we have a contractor and his crew coming out to remove the tree and temporarily patch the hole.

* Eagles Roost cabin was also damaged when a tree fell on it, however it appears damage was minimal.

* Early Tuesday morning the Hilltop #2 cabin caught on fire. From what we can ascertain, the fire was caused by electrical power surges from the storm. The fire was an attic fire, which caused the roof of the building to collapse, and caused extensive damage to the rest of the building, however, the local fire department responded promptly and there were no injuries.

*Praise God that no guest were at camp during this storm and that none of the staff homes suffered damage.

Please pray for us during this difficult time, we will keep you updated as we know more.
