I asked Pastor Richard Mansfield of New Beginnings Church in Albuquerque to pray over Elkhart County Indiana, as firefighters are battling a massive landfill fire. Thank you so very much Pastor Richard, we love you!

Lord, we come to You with thanksgiving and praise for being the mighty God that You are. You have been so incredibly wonderful and good to us. You have brought us into Your family through Your son Jesus Christ. You provide everything for us and for that we are incredibly and eternally grateful. We know that nothing is impossible for You and because of that, we come asking on behalf of our brothers and sisters and the community in Elkhart County in Indiana. Place your guardian angels over all of them as they battle this horrible fire. Give strength, stamina and wisdom to every firefighter and first responder that is working hard to bring an end to this fire and devastation in their community. Stop the winds and bring heavy rains to help them bring this fire not only under control but to an end. Protect everyone’s breathing from the toxic waste that is been burned in the landfill. Help the community to work together and draw strength from one another as they go through this horrific ordeal. We pray Your peace, power and presence over the leadership, community and families been affected by this. We pray with great hope and assurance of your mighty presence in Jesus name, amen!


Psalms 91:11 For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. Psalms 91:4 He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

As many of you know I am working with my dear friends in ElKhart, Indiana at WFRN Radio. WFRN is where I started my years in Christian radio in 1986, I started in radio in 1978 at the Minnesota State Radio News Network. The Moore family, owners of WFRN and all the staff are so very special to me and Sharon. The station is just down the road from this massive landfill fire, please be in prayer. Everyone is being sent home today from the station because of all the smoke! Please pray for safety from the smoke and any toxins. Please pray for all the firefighters! Across the way is the Elkhart County Jail, pray for all the guards and the 500 inmates, safety from the smoke. The wind changed it’s direction today and is blowing right into WFRN. The station and other homes and buildings are not in any fire danger, it is the smoke now that is the problem.  More Here
