Where's that church?

After quite an unexpected amount of attention over THIS PHOTO:

I felt I could finally answer your questions! This church was photographed, from alongside the road, in Mariposa, California.

YES - this is also the community that is affected deeply by the Telegraph Fire. Please stop and say a prayer for the members of this, and the surrounding communities who have been evacuated, the 25 families whose homes have been burned and the other 4000 that are currently threatened. Also send up prayers for the almost 3,500 personnel that are working to contain this fire that has burned almost 30,000 acres so far.

Our family was actually in Yosemite at the time they cut power to the park so the fire workers could remain safe. I'm SO glad we're not staying at a hotel in Yosemite Valley! No air conditioning, no fans, no tv, no refrigeration... I'll take a sunburn anyday.

I just said a prayer for them.
It is indeed a gorgeous church.
Think of the prayers that have went uP through that building, and lost souls saved!
