It is on daily base that a big news event pops up on extremism, earthquakes, war and other events that leave os with many deaths.

Now it is an lightning strike that set a forest on fire which result in already 57 deaths.

What still amazes me is that people get insensitive about al these happenings around them. They get blunted. I know that the bible talks about how people would react. But... it still amazes me.


It al seems to speed up. Nowadays there is daily news of this size.

More deaths, death toll up to 61, including firefighters, with 60 injured. It's quite noteworthy that Prime Minister Antonio Costa called it"the biggest tragedy of human life that we have known in years".

Unfortunately some brothers, including a 5yrs child,  died also on this tragedy... 

It was chocking because 30 people died inside their cars while trying to escape and 17 others were found near the cars on the side of the road, dead due to the smoke inalation... As the fire works are getting inside the Village more dead people are being found on the roda or completely Burnett out... It's a very said weekend for this country...

We were able this morning to preach a lot about how Jehovah feels about suffering, what's the cause of it and what the future will bring. Lots of people are in need of confort...
