Fire, Evacuations, Infections, Eviction: Mission Onward

God spared our little town of Chester—surrounded on all sides by fire that did not enter the town. Our church building had fire retardant on it, but had no damage. Many nearby communities did sustain damage, and some were destroyed—four St. Andrew's parishioners lost their homes.

Our trials began even before the fire even arrived, as we were faced with the prospect of leaving the school building we’ve rented for a decade. We returned from the evacuation, sick with COVID...to find an eviction notice. But God is good! We’ve been able to remodel and repurpose a nearby vacant restaurant for now, and have been blessed to be able to rent four schoolrooms from the nearby Wesleyan church.

Levi Watson

Sponsor Levi

My name is Levi Watson. I am a 23 year's old, living in California. I can be pretty introverted and hide behind dry self-referential humor. For instance, the last time I introduced myself to a stranger I said, "Hi I make jokes when I’m uncomfortable." Needless to say she didn’t think I was very funny.

Noah's Fundraiser

Sponsor Noah

My name is Noah Bartel, and I am a Gap Year Fellow at the Lindisfarne House, a ministry of St. Andrew's Church and Academy, at Lake Almanor, California. In this program, I have taken temporary monastic vows, and am excited to serve (and continue serving) the school and church as I grow spiritually in Christ.
