Hume Lake Christian Camps Rallies Churches for Continued Prayer for Fire Protection


HUME, Calif., Aug. 22, 2015 /Christian Newswire/ — The Rough Fire continues to advance to Hume Lake Christian Camps, located in the Sequoia National Forest. The Hume staff and community are asking for continued prayer in a few specific areas this weekend.

Pray for the hundreds of firefighters working the fire, including the volunteer Hume fire department, and for the handful of Hume staff who remain behind to keep basic camp operations going for the firefighters. Pray for the displaced camp staff and their families, many of them who have loved ones remaining at Hume.

Pray for the cancellation of retreats and guests to Hume and the loss of revenue with that. Pray for the team as they coordinate the logistics and volunteers to restart camp operations.

“We are not defined by our buildings or facilities,” said Executive Director, Dathan Brown to the staff on Saturday morning. “We are defined by our mission.”

Hume Lake Christian Camps is a year-round youth camp and adult retreat center providing epic, high-energy, life-changing programs for churches, schools, teams and groups. Since 1946, more than one million campers have gone through this ministry and experienced the love and power of a life lived in Christ through recreation, music and speaking.

The Rough Fire began with a lightning strike on July 31, 2015 and now encompasses over 40,000 acres.
