Please Help Central America

The flooding in Central America has affected thousands of people. We know of at least 4 pastors who have lost their homes and of 5 church buildings that have been flooded. Many church members have lost everything. We also have churches in some mountainous areas that were still cut off due to massive mudslides. In Guatemala, President Alvaro Colom declared a “state of calamity” for the entire nation and many people were trapped for days without food and fresh water.

Now the rebuilding begins. In the coming days, weeks and months some of the most important areas of concern will be feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, replanting crops, and treating waterborne illnesses.

How can you help? One of the most effective ways is to send a financial contribution. Sending containers of food and supplies to these areas is very expensive and can take weeks to reach those in need. Financial aid can be sent quickly and can be used to help those in need in numerous ways.

Please prayerfully consider what you can contribute today. Every donation is important and can make a difference to those in this devastating circumstance. Thank you in advance for supporting the people in Central America.

URGENT NEED IN EL SALVADOR, GUATEMALA AND HONDURAS DUE TO MASSIVE FLOODING

A Tropical Depression has settled over much of Central America causing massive damage. Much of the coastal areas have been flooded; hundreds of communities and thousands of homes have been destroyed. Over 100,000 have been evacuated. Hundreds of government shelters had been set up but many of these shelters have experienced flooding forcing the many evacuees to seek shelter elsewhere. Many of our churches in these nations have experienced flooding, loss of property and even loss of life.
