Peru is currently experiencing the worst flooding in nearly two decades. Significant rainfall has led to extreme flooding and mudslides across the country and has affected many people over the last week. As many as 72 people have lost their lives and thousands have been left homeless. More than 800 cities are under a state of emergency due to the flooding.
We as a church would love to come together to help bring some relief. It is important we follow an organized response, so that we can be of assistance and not a hindrance. We ask that you not travel to the disaster site(s) unless you have communicated with an organization already involved in relief efforts, and they are aware of your arrival.
Prayer changes everything, brings comfort to those in difficult situations, and heals the brokenhearted. Prayer is powerful. Pray for those who have lost loved ones in the floods as well as those who have lost their homes.
Your donations will be given to our ministry partners helping those affected.
