May I ask your prayer for eastern States of Australia. Large areas of north Queensland have severe flooding, with more rain expected. Supplies are runing short in the worst affected areas.
In Victoria at this time at least 14 people have been killed and more than 100 homes destroyed in wildfires so far with high winds fuelling the blazes.
My sister and her husband’s home is amongst the many in danger, and their son, who has remained in his home to protect his property, is in line with the fires. Their aunt and uncle’s home has already been destroyed…and along with others’ homes. In New South Wales fires are also threatening homes.
The estimated death toll is as high as 40 as temperatures of up to 47C, that is 116.6 degrees F in Victoria during this last week. This is the highest temperature in Victoria in recorded history.
Victoria being in the south (it being the Southern Hemisphere) is supposed to be one of the cooler States.
Your prayers would be welcomed. Thank you
