As I write this blog post, most of Australia has burnt or is burning from bushfires across this fair land. It has been the worst in my personal history of fire, and also how widespread the bushfires have been. It really seems like there is no end in sight of this massive disaster, but in true Aussie spirit we endure and do not give up the fight. I feel very helpless from my home here in Perth, Western Australia. My prayers go out to these amazing Men and Women who are currently fighting these awful fires all over this beautiful land of ours.
The highways out of Western Australia have been closed, and so effectively we are cut off from the rest of Australia. Many animals native to Australia have been lost in the fires and it seems gone forever. It seems hard to see the end in sight, but I know we will prevail and will rebuild.
My thoughts and prayers go out to my Uncle and Aunt who live over East. They are safe, but have no power at the moment, like many on the East coast of Australia. It is times like this where you truly and deeply thank God for family and friends around you. I may not see my Uncle and Aunt all the time, but they are very much part of my childhood wallpaper and so they mean the world to me. Please pray for them and all the others who have been caught up in this tragedy.
It is so very painful to see the land of your birth completely burning itself out. What can I say, or do, but sit here and write my blog post, and show the world, what is indeed happening, in Australia.
Please join me in prayers for all of Australia 🙏🙏🙏
