My previous post highlighted men’s mental health and suicide rates. And shortly after I posted, an Aussie friend shared this video via Facebook. This is an ad recently posted by Marie Claire Australia with the explanation, “One woman is killed every week in Australia because of domestic violence. Will this tv ad – launched around the country this weekend – make a difference? We hope so.” While this statistic is for Australia in general, Ryan and I recognize that domestic violence is also very high in the Wheatbelt outside of Perth.
Please continue to pray. Pray for us as we continue to work towards moving to Western Australia. Pray for the women who are victims of domestic violence. Pray for the men who are the aggressors. And please pray for the families that are dealing with the effects of domestic violence in their own homes and communities.
