A Prayer Request

Please be praying for Australians living in Victoria. As you no doubt have heard by now, the state is in the midst of the worst natural disaster in its history. While bushfires rage every year, this year has been particularly harsh, as the heat has gotten intense (46.6 C, roughly 116 F), destroying millions of dollars in homes, and claiming 93 lives ... so far. To my Australian brothers and sisters, you are in our prayers.

UPDATE: Mark Sayers has more to say on this tragedy from Doncaster, one of Melbourne's eastern suburbs.
