The reservation my husband is from is on fire again. You may remember last year, our family's ranch was threatened w/ fire.
This current fire has been raging since the midnight hour of Teusday. It started the night we left and we didn't know about it until we got home.
This fire is the largest in Montana history. It started on the Northern Cheyenne reservation. This fire is getting absolutely no news-time & they aren't getting the help that other places in country would be getting.
TONS of their firefighters have been dispatched to New Mexico and at least TWO teams of volunteer firefighters have been TURNED AWAY when they came to help with the fires on the reservation!!!
This fire has destroyed lives and homes in at least two districts on the reservation. It's destroyed over 110,000 acres of reservation land.
DH and I are trying to keep up with everything going on and staying in touch w/ our family and friends on the rez.
If you pray---PLEASE keep the people of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in your prayers!! I know there are fires all over the nation right now..I pray for them as well. But these people aren't getting the help they need.
This fire has been going for days and is only 5% contained (was the last info i had). Please...please pray for them!
