As I looked out the kitchen window, I saw smoke behind a hill on the horizon. Before I could get to the phone to notify the local fire brigade officer, it rang. He was ringing us, to ask if our farmhand Tony could go with the firetruck to fight the fire.

There was an orange glow in the sky when I went to bed that night. Throughout the night I prayed to know the power and presence of God, right where a bush fire seemed to be. In the morning we learned that the fire was still out of control, and that eight hundred acres had already been burned. When I asked Tony, after his night of firefighting, if there was anything that could be done, he replied, "Only pray" (probably more out of desperation than hope).
