Bushfires are part of the landscape of Australia. Again this week we are witnessing a bushfire having a large impact in parts of the hills on the eastern outskirts of Perth WA. At this stage over 80 houses have been lost. Many have been evacuated and areas of Perth are shrouded in smoke. We share a deep concern for those experiencing and fighting these terrible fires and hold in our memory the fires across Australia from one year ago. We can often feel helpless in the face of such natural disasters.

The Mundaring Church of Christ is in the midst of this bushfire area. Members have lost homes and the church, working with other churches, is reaching out to people who have lost homes, been evacuated and experiencing fear and distress. The good news is that there is an appeal currently happening launched through Global Mission Partners Extend. Colin Battersby who is the WA Partnership Coordinator for Global Mission Partners spoke to Jeziel about this bushfire appeal and about how the churches have come together and gotten involved in helping the community.
