a Biblical thought...
This is what the LORD commands: When a man makes a vow to the LORD or takes an oath to obligate himself by a pledge, he must not break his word but must do everything he said. (Numbers 30:2)

a Book thought...
Construct your life so that you are doing more of what God is anointing in your life. (p111)
a Dave thought...
Twenty-five people are confirmed dead and the toll is expected to rise in Victoria's worst bushfires since Ash Wednesday.
The number of dead is expected to reach more than 40 as blazes continue to ravage the state with more than 100,000 hectares affected as 3000 firefighters struggle to contain seven major firefronts.
As I head off to an MSB rehearsal and and a band spiritual followed by the cadets welcome I wonder where us Salvos in Victoria should really be today.

Just a thought.

You can be sure that the Salvo Emergency Services teams will be where the need is. May God bless them and keep them safe as they minister to those in need physically and practically.

Have just rung around many Corps in Eastern Vic and am humbled to hear of many officers, soldiers and friends who have been up most of the night and busy today with relief efforts. Some good teamwork happening. People exhausted are being rested and new crews coming in.

In some commnities, things are 'unfolding' now - community meetings happening (as we write) to hear exactly how we can help - specific items needed, etc. Admin is poised, ready to assist as soon as specific needs are ascertained. In other areas, clothing, blankets, counselling, refreshments, toiletries have been purchased and distributed. More work will no doubt be happening in the following days - grants, more permanent accomodation, etc. Salvos will be working in conjunction with other agencies, Govt Depts in this.

All things stable, so far. Some fantstic people out there!
