Disaster Updates – How You Can Help

September 28th, 2017 | in Alliance News |    0   

With the overwhelming number of disasters around us over the last few weeks, the Christian and Missionary Alliance in Canada together with our International Workers continue to seek opportunities to bring healing and restoration to those affected. Several of our International Workers will need to relocate as a result of building damages. But we continue to entrust all these needs to our loving Father. May He use this as a doorway to reveal Himself to all nations. Let us continue to pray for our International Workers and national church partners to take hold of the opportunities to shine the light and hope of Jesus Christ during this time of darkness. Pray that in the midst of grief and fear, the affected communities will open their eyes and hearts to a gracious God who loves them and is present with them through all circumstances.

Let us continue to pray for our International Workers and national church partners to take hold of the opportunities to shine the light and hope of Jesus Christ during this time of darkness. Pray that in the midst of grief and fear, the affected communities will open their eyes and hearts to a gracious God who loves them and is present with them through all circumstances.

As we remember the grace of God in our own lives, we have the opportunity to respond to these catastrophes in a meaningful way. This past month, the C&MA in Canada distributed funds for hurricane relief in a Caribbean Island, earthquake relief in Mexico, relief for communities impacted by the economic crisis in a Latin America country, and flood relief in a country in Asia. These funds assist our International Workers in the affected areas to purchase supplies for emergency relief as well as long-term recovery. Your contribution to the Global Emergency Response Fund makes a difference. Money raised from this fund helps local churches respond so that people can tangibly experience God's love and compassion.

Please also pray for our International Workers near the active volcano in Asia. They are on the ground visiting the area to prepare for the effects of the eruption as best they can. More than 70,000 people have been evacuated already with an official exclusion zone of 12km around the volcano site. Your prayers and giving are a means to move the gospel forward in these nations. We want to confidently place the right people, at the right time, in the right place, to do the right things. Will you respond?

“Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God that he has given you.” Deuteronomy 16:17

We're made of people in churches who send people to share love, truth and hope with people around the world, people who may never have heard the name "Jesus" before.
