I've gotten some e-mails from some of you asking if all is ok in Australia. I don't have time to send an e-mail to all my groups, so hopefully people will check here. Two towns within 20 minutes or so of here were destroyed by bush fires over the weekend and we are in the area obviously for all of them, but wind changed in such a way that fire didn't come through Kangaroo Ground. Over 100 people have died in this area from the fires though, many of whom are known by staff here. Please pray for rain (this area is in a nearly 10 year drought), for fires to be put out, and for comfort for affected families. Thanks for your prayers.
