We have all been following the devastating fires in Knysna and surroundings and spoke to it yesterday in our services. Today, I spoke to the resident Methodist Minister, Rev Rodney Jamieson, who is part of the Knysna disaster relief efforts. He states that what is needed most at the moment is financial aid. They are also assisting the children of the various schools affected by the fire.
