ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) — A pastor in flood-stricken Estes Park, Colo., says his church served God and the community by sheltering more than 100 evacuees at the height of the emergency. The Rev. Hal Irvine (UR'-vyn) says some of them had escaped with their lives and nothing else. The pastor of Mountain View Bible Fellowship says his congregation takes seriously Jesus Christ's command to "love your neighbor as yourself." He says they're praying for perseverance in the months ahead as they continue to help people recover. The evacuees were moved to local hotels after overwhelmed sewers and sanitation forced the church to close. State officials say the flooding killed as many as eight people. Hundreds remain unaccounted for, but that number has been falling. Colorado counties report about 19,000 homes either damaged or destroyed. Sound: Upcoming
