Devastation.


Our prayers are with those in Victoria who have lost family and loved ones. The death toll this morning is over 100 due to bushfires. There are many people injured and many have lost everything..........


Pray for rain and an ease in conditions. Australians will now do what they do best and lend a helping hand.

We can forget what tragedies some are experiencing so far away. I can only imagine how dreadful it must be! I will pray. Is it affecting you directly?

No, we had a fire in a location 30 minutes away, but not like Victoria.

We are experiencing a cool change at the moment. 29C but with gale force winds just praying that Victoria does't get them as they don't need strong winds right now.

Praying for all those desparate people is all I can offer and I will make a donation. I wish I could do more.

Glad to hear you are safe,

Tania

We have been following this tragic story in our news here in Africa, too. Our thoughts and prayers are with all Australians right now :)

This is just terrifying. My heart aches for all those affected. I have an aunt who lives in Yellingbo and they have been on high alert with the sirens going off twice today. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Thankyou all for your kindness, for those who know friends and family in affected areas, I hope you hear encouraging news soon.
