Colorado Disaster Relief

We have a team of twelve mostly MSSU students in Grand County, Colorado this week helping Colorado Baptist Disaster Relief perform wildfire recovery after last year’s East Troublesome fire. The blaze covered over 193 thousand acres and forced over 35 thousand people to evacuate.

Our first day was spent at the Tillman Cabin, a private property located inside Rocky Mountain National Park. The family was there working to do the only thing they can at this point: scrape it all clean and start over. The stress and grief they’re sharing was readily apparent as they sifted through the rubble and ash hoping to find something, anything, they might salvage.

The Tillman Cabin predated Rocky Mountain National Park.
