Please Pray for Operation Christmas Child in Cambodia

The Mission Co-ordinator of Cambodian Communities out of Crisis has told us of a threat to this year’s distribution of Christmas gifts to Cambodian children by Operation Christmas Child.

Please pray that that every administrative, bureaucratic and logistical obstacle will be cleared away, each shoebox sent to Cambodia will reach a needy child and each child will have the opportunity to hear about the real meaning of Christmas.

Please Pray for the Victims of the Indonesian Earthquake and Tsunami

844 confirmed dead, mass graves being prepared for 1,300, thousands homeless, 34 children killed in a Christian camp, survivors looting shops for food and water, 1,200 escaped prisoners on the loose.

What devastation, what horror.

What can we do?

  1. Our first response must be to pray for the survivors, the bereaved and the rescue workers.
  2. We can give, for example to World Vision, who already have personnel on the ground assessing how best to respond.
  3. And we can go on believing in a good and gracious God, who sent His Son to suffer and die for a fallen world and who one day will bring a new heaven and a new earth.

At least 20 dead, 100 missing, thousands homeless following Laos dam collapse

One of a network of dams in the Xe-Pian Xe-Namnoy hydroelectric power project in Laos has collapsed, resulting in deaths, injuries and widespread flooding affecting thousands of families.

On 26 July, the Stung Treng provincial authority was working around the clock to evacuate about 25,000 residents in its Siem Pang district affected by flooding from the collapsed dam. The Sekong River water level, directly fed by the flooding, had reached 11.98 m at 10:30 am on 26 July, inundating 17 villages of four communes in the district.

Please pray for the families affected and those trying to help them.
