Re: FLOODING- WE ARE in BRISBANE!-Andrew Strom.No doubt many of you around the world have been hearing aboutthe terrible flooding in Australia around the Brisbane-Toowoombaarea. Well, my family and I have been house-sitting a friend's homein North Brisbane for the last couple of weeks before we beginour Australia tour in late January. I don't know how it happens,but we always seem to arrive just in time for a major disasteror some extreme-weather event!But there is nothing "light" about what is taking place here rightnow. Tragically, a massive water-surge tore through Toowoombaand other towns to the West of Brisbane yesterday - killing anumber of people and causing major destruction. This same tideis headed downriver towards Brisbane. We are about 5 miles outof Strathpine (Nth Brisbane) - which received an evacuation alertfor its low-lying areas today. But so far it is not too terrible - andwe are not on the low ground ourselves. But parts of Brisbaneexpect a very torrid night - and tomorrow as well. Please keep thisregion in your prayers, my friends. Many are having to leave theirhomes. And the rain is still falling.You may wish to see the latest on this disaster from the SydneyMorning Herald at the following website-http://www.smh.com.au/environment/weather/Thankyou so much for praying and God bless you all.Andrew Strom.
Dear, you are never alone. God will never let anything come your way that you and Him together cannot handle. Be strong and of a good courage for all things will work together for your good. God bless.
Romans 8:28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
Please for give me for not being clearer. This came in my email asking us to pray for the people there. Thank you all for your prayers. We need prayer around the world for so much. Mainly that the Lord would use these disasters for His glory. As people call upon Him we know that He hears and loves them and us so much. Amen and all glory to God.
