Family Life Radio would like to honor the Granite Mountain Hotshots as our Hope Hero’s for the Month of July 2013. The 19 men who lost their lives battling a wildfire near near Prescott, Arizona on Yarnell Hill are proof of the profound truth found in John 15:13 “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” As sad as we know the loss of life to be, we can be encouraged by the truth of God’s word and His promises.
