Crisis In Cusco

I know that many of you have been praying for, and sending generous gifts to help the disaster stricken nation of Haiti - and that's important - but I want to share with you this message we have just received from our link missionaries in Peru.

It is the rainy season there, and things are bad where they are...

peru floods

“Dear praying friends, please pray for the region of Cusco. The Urubamba river has flooded, bridges have collapsed and there are terrible mudslides. Many homes made of adobe (mud and straw) have been washed away; some people have died in the mudslides, others have lost their homes and livelihoods. Today the Cusco region was declared a state of emergency for the next 60 days. Some of our missionary colleagues living in the countryside have experienced terrible damage to their property. We in the city are only experiencing minor annoyances with travel disruption and water shortages but we urge you to pray for those who are so badly affected and the response that the Baptist convention and other churches will make to reach out to those suffering.

Thankyou, Scott and Anjanette Williamson”
