Please pray

I'm sure most of you have heard about the bushfires that have ravaged Victoria. I can't think of words to describe how horrific this is - there are no words. Watching the news on tv is so distressing, so painful. Hearing stories of tragedy, seeing pictures of this hellish disaster zone. . . it's feared that over 200 people have been killed, and many hundreds have lost their homes.

I don't know what else we can do right now but pray - please pray.

Dear Elise,
I will keep this alarming situation in my prayers!!
Having just last year experienced multiple dangerous fires in California, I can attest to how scary it can be. How sad that 200 people have been killed and have lost their homes!

Love & Blessings,
Jen

I can't believe this is happening!

When I lived in Alaska we had lots of forest fires. It was insane but it never wiped out entire towns!

Thankyou all of you for praying.

Michelle - I know, it's hard for me to get my head around this. Destruction on this scale is so hard to fathom. . . it's just mind-blowing.

One of my best friends lives in Melbourne and she has friends that have lost homes. It is so sad.

Yeah - there's someone at our church who has a brother who's been caught up in this. - Thousands of people may have lost their homes, but the repercussions are affecting tens of thousands.
