Brisbane Under Water

Brisbane, Australia and the surrounding areas holds a very special place in my heart and I had to post on it. Patrick and I were GLUED to the short tv segment that the Today show provided of the downtown Brisbane area (where we spent a lot of our free time during our study abroad over there).  The river that runs right through the city completely overflowed and there is devastation everywhere.

Under this huge area of water is a suberb of Brisbane

Please keep this city in your prayers as the death toll is rising every hour and so many people are stranded.  Pray that Ray and Pam can find a way to bring hope to their neighbors who are struggling with so much loss.
