Bethel Church Group Shares Bible Pages That Survived Devastating Carr Fire
One homeowner’s property was destroyed in the Carr fire that took place late last month, but two powerful pages from their Bible managed to survive.
The Bethel Global Response team associated with the Bethel megachurch in Redding, Calif. shared the tattered Bible pages on its Facebook page Tuesday.
“Two pages of this homeowner’s Bible survived the fire. This one catches Psalm 90 and the start of Psalm 91: (90) Let your work appear to your servants and your glory to their children,” the Bethel group wrote. “And let the beauty of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands for us; yes establish the work of our hands. (91) Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’”

The Carr fire began burning on July 23 and still has not been completely contained. The fire was labeled a national disaster and has been called the sixth most destructive in California history.
For weeks, Bethel and its team of volunteers have been providing relief and inspiration for those in need. One mission of the Bethel Global Response team has been to take part in “Ash Outs,” which involves people helping others sift through the ashes of their homes in an attempt to recover valuable items.
The Redding, Calif. megachurch has been training volunteers to assist those in need and continues to call for more people to aid in the efforts.
“Ash Outs are a tangible, practical way to come alongside families in our community who have lost their homes and are searching for things of value,” the church shared on social media last week.
Bethel has also offered to pay $1,000 to each household that lost their home due to the devastating Carr wildfire.
“It is our desire to offer a $1000 gift of assistance to residents who experienced the loss of both home and possessions because the home they were residing in was destroyed. This gift is intended to assist with emergency needs such as food, gasoline, air filters, etc,” a message on the church’s website states. “We are able to give one gift per home lost (not per person), to the people that were living in the home during the Carr Fire.”
