UPDATE: Update Rebecca St James' House Miraculously Spared From Wildfires
We reported earlier how Rebecca St. James was forced to evacuate her house in Northern California as raging wildfires that have engulfed the area were on their way to do likewise to her home. Rebecca asked for your prayers for her home and those of her neighbors.
Well, apparently your prayers were heard! The fire stopped just short of Rebecca's back yard. At one time Rebecca recounted seeing 2-story flames in her neighborhood and lamenting she may lose her home entirely, the situation has changed completely!
Read, as Rebecca recounts in her Facebook exactly what happened:
From Rebecca's Facebook: The view from her back porch
“Hi everyone, We’ve received an update from Rebecca: A tree in our front yard was burnt and a water pipe burst, but our house is ok! Sounds like the fire came right to our back fence. It's a total miracle cause the wind changed right when the fires were about to take over our house. You can see the proof when you look at where the fire stopped, 3 feet from our back fence. The fire was a 2-3 story wall of flame, only meters away from our home! Apparently a few of our neighbors stayed to help fight the fire, which is a big reason why most of the houses on our street were saved. Unfortunately our neighbors three doors away lost their house, so please keep praying for that family. Thanks to you all for your prayers. They are greatly appreciated! -RSJ Team”
