We hold those affected by wildfires in our prayers as well as those who are supporting the evacuees. A letter from our BC Conference President is here.
Doug Goodwin, writing on the BC Conference facebook page, says:
“A number of people have been wondering whether BC Conference will collect money to assist those affected by the fires. From past experience we have found that sending financial donations to organizations that focus on relief work of this kind is more direct and effective than establishing a fund in BC Conference. We appreciate and share the concern and desire to help out but encourage you to do so through those who are already set up to get your assistance to those in need much quicker than we can.”
