Baptist Relief Fund Activated for Perth Fires
WA Bushfire Disaster
Your opportunity to assist
As you will all be aware, many areas from Wooraloo, the Hills area, down through to Brigadoon, Bullsbrook and the upper Swan have been heavily impacted by the current major fire events, with currently 86 homes destroyed over the past few days. The fire has stretched some 80 kms and burnt some 9,000 hectares and it is still continuing.
Additionally, you may also be aware that Pastor John and Rosemary Harris have lost everything (including their house, shed, cabin and most equipment and all fittings etc) at their home in the recent York fire. John is a valued long-term pastor, who is currently the Senior Pastor at Katanning Baptist Church.
Baptist Churches Western Australia has been in contact with our churches in Parkerville, Toodyay, Chidlow and Ellenbrook and we will continue to follow through with these churches to identify individuals who have been affected by the fire and have damage to their properties.
We have a special opportunity to help both John and Rosemary Harris and the current communities impacted.
Please give to the Baptist Relief Fund Inc. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
The preferred method of giving is online giving via Baptist Financial Service's Giveway portal >>>
Please also keep fire, emergency, relief workers and the many families who are suffering right now, in your prayers as they respond to this unfolding event.
