the last I heard was 128 people killed. the fires are stilll burning out of control. i did read today that there are usually 60,000 fires in Austrailia in a year, and suspect that at least half are set or suspicious. this is horrible. to our friends down under please know that they are in our thoughts and that we are praying for their safety and health. I believe contributions can be made to the red cross if anyone would like to help.
