This has a very personal impact because my wife, Ruth, is the outreach worker for Bethesda House. Not only did she lose many personal items she had used to make her office attractive, the accumulated wisdom of her years in training as a counsellor in the form of presentation notes and course outlines went up in smoke. Ruth does presentations in the school system, the college and university, and with community groups. There can be no dollar amount set as compensation for this "intellectual property" and the loss is overwhelming.
Please pray for the clients of Bethesda House who will be affected by this disruption, those who lost businesses and residences, and the staff members who lost their work home, including Ruth.
