Tragic Australian fires


Can’t stop thinking about the tragic Australian fires. And feel so helpless.

I have many family members in Australia, all of whom I’m hoping to see in a month’s time on our planned Australian tour. The young generation is involved in fighting the fires on Kangaroo Island. Respects.

Thousands of good people lost their homes. 24 good folks lost their lives. And … HALF A BILLION WILD ANIMALS burned to death in NSW alone ? Can it be true ? Almost unthinkable. And no end in sight ?

What can we do ? We can pray. And we can put pressure on our leaders to prioritise the health of our planet rather than “The Economy”. It’s already too late for these creatures. We can only pray it’s not too late for the rest of our world. To all our Australian friends – we send love – and our prayers.
