It's so good to have my hubby back from Bastrop! He is exhausted, but he enjoyed his time helping in relief efforts by cooking all week long. He told me to story of a man whose home burned to the ground. The only salvageable item from his home was a Precious Moments plate that had the words "Praise God Anyhow". Wow!
The fire is now completely out, and rebuilding will begin slowly. 38,000 acres and 1700 homes have burned. The people of Bastrop will need continued prayer and help over the next few weeks and months. I found this link to pictures of burned homes and relief efforts: Michael Gardner Photography
Here is another picture from the Response and Relief Network which my hubby worked with.
