#PrayForAustralia Trends As Skies Turn Blood Red
The forest fires in Australia have shaken the entire world. Images and videos of dead and trapped animals, climate change, ashes are doing the rounds on the internet.
The fires, which is reportedly an effect of climate change, have damaged an estimated 5 million hectares of land. Around 8,000 Koalas, which is 30 per cent of the population is said to have perished.
Australia is witnessing its hottest and driest season this year with temperatures soaring to almost 50 degrees Celsius.
It is also estimated that over 480 million birds, animals and reptiles have already been lost because of the fires.
Images from South Australia show the sky turned blood red and smoky. The smoke has reportedly reached New Zealand as well.
For those who may have missed these. Here are a few shots I took of the fire in east Gippsland last Monday the 30th December. From the South Buchan and North of Bairnsdale areas. #austfires #australiaburns pic.twitter.com/criDwQpkti

Please pass this message on to anyone you know who would participate with us. The power of worldwide prayer is HUGE 🙏🏼🙏🏼
