Bushfires
« on: February 08, 2009, 11:05:51 PM »
Pry for the state of Victoria & New South Wales here in Australia. So far 108 killed, may double when they recover more bodies.

www.news.com.au/heraldsun/

This is a good link from the state nespaper. Also pray for the Emergency services  saw an item where a firefighter saved 20 houses but lost his own, and other fire fighters have lost family mmbers too.

This link from the non-commercial national Australian broadcaster:

http://www.abc.net.au/news/events/bushfires/

I understand the ABC's radio network is the official national source of information in emergencies such as these.

Lord, Bless Australia! Lord, have mercy. Dear God Jesus Christ, grant the eternal rest to the victims, comfort those, who were injured and lost the loved ones. Bless the rescuing crews and all others, who are trying to make difference in these conditions.

Lord, have mercy.
