Black Saturday

The horror of what has happened in Victoria over the last couple of days cannot be imagined. The worst natural disaster in Australian memory will claim in excess of 300 lives. Read here.

Think of 40m high walls of flames coming over a ridge at you travelling faster than a car can drive. That was the reality for whole towns in Victoria. Unable to escape by road, communities waited for the fire, not knowing when it would arrive as radio reports were unable to keep pace with the fires and so were out of date. The stories emerging are horrific.

My cousin lives on a farm with his family north of Melbourne. Without word, we can only pray that he and his family are safe.

Please help. Gails blog has details as does Bec's. And please please pray for the families and communities affected.
