Church Fire in South Phoenix

Arson is suspected in a fire at the Rhema Full Gospel Baptist Church, at 28th Street and South Mountain Avenue in Phoenix. The brick church, which was soon to be renovated, was gutted by fire, which destroyed virtually everything inside.

Why make mention of this? To ask your prayers for the congregation of that church; and for ours. Holy Archangels Orthodox Church is one block north, and about eight blocks west, of the Rhema Full Gospel Baptist Church's location -- and there have been a number of arson fires set in our area in the last few months.
