Mike Kemp and his wife were stirring in their Paradise home on November 8, 2018 when they noticed the entire sky was orange. “It was like Armageddon,” he said.

That day, their dream house, which the couple built themselves, was completely destroyed by the Camp Fire, the largest in California history.

It was two months before the Kemps returned and California Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers were there to help them salvage anything left of their former lives.

Often, it’s not what the volunteer teams recover, but their presence that shows they care.
