District Update as of Tuesday Evening: Camp White Branch is Safe. The fire is about 20 miles down from the camp in Rainbow past McKenzie Bridge. The first responders are working around the clock and are tired. Camp Managers have been in touch with the Emergency Coordinator for Lane County as well as with the McKenzie Ranger Station (fire side). Please know that all power and phone lines are down at camp. Thank you all for your prayers - they are so appreciated.

Project Hope Update
A report from our Quadrant Coordinator, Kaylee: "Everyone went above and beyond this year. I'm so impressed by the way volunteers operated with joy and flexibility, and how much love, hope and Jesus flowed through our volunteers. Truly, this is Jesus' Church in action.
We served 418 students (out of the 550 tickets given) at Willamette Christian Center. The school district representatives were filled with joy and deeply moved. It was a WIN."
Total Stats: 50 churches partnered to make available 3,500 pairs of new shoes and socks, and 3,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to students at 6 Giveaway sites. THANK YOU! GOD IS GOOD!
