UPDATE: Please keep praying for Randy and Loree's son and daughter-in-law Taylor and Katie Johns...This is their street. They live at the base of that mountain. So doesn’t look hopeful. Taylor is flying home now and will try to find Katie. She is safe with friends but no one has talked to her since yesterday after lunch. No cell service. Last known to be on Zuma beach with evacuees.

Also, Claude and Mary Jones' grandson.... they haven’t heard from their grandson today. The fire was going up Corral Canyon toward their house. Don’t know if they still have a house.

Pray for everyone in the area.
