Summer of loss.

Every summer major loss events impact Australia and the South Pacific Islands as a result of thunderstorms, cyclones and bushfires.

While the Pacific Cyclone season has already commenced it has not yet affected Adventist property in the region. Please pray for this part of the world and their communities over the coming months.

To date, numerous Australian Adventist sites have reported losses which have occurred over the summer. The damage caused by loss events such as large hail, strong winds, heavy rain, lightning and bushfires, can result in damage costs that range from minor to significant.

Actual details of losses must be kept confidential, but we can share with you sites we are working with where various weather events over the 2019/20 summer period may have resulted in a potential loss:
