Our thoughts and prayers are with those affected by the deadly wildfires in California. 

Deadly and destructive wildfires in northern California have left Latter-day Saints dealing with a bevy of emotions.

First, there’s relief.

“All of our members [and missionaries] are safe—that’s the best news,” said Santa Rosa California Stake President Gary Kitchen.

But there’s also loss, fear, and pain.

Thirty-three member homes were destroyed in the Santa Rosa California Stake. At least eight more were lost in the neighboring Napa California Stake.
