Prayer Alert: Torrential Flooding Displaces 900,000 in India

"Please pray with us for our missionaries who are ministering during these difficult days. Thank you for caring for the suffering and helpless." -K.P. Yohannan

As monsoon rains show no signs of letting up in northeastern India, residents are facing the grim reality of property loss, starvation and possible death.
Hundreds have already perished in the devastation, and according to Assam Agriculture Minister Nilamoni Sen Deka, 900,000 people have been displaced.
Floodwaters have now hit 58 Gospel for Asia-supported churches and six Bridge of Hope centers, potentially leaving more than 1,000 Believers without a church and 716 children without education.
Thousands of helpless people have been forced to evacuate their homes and are stranded without food or drinking water. Floods have covered roads and destroyed lines of communication.
After three days of flash floods, one of our pastors in the area called in to say that he and the Believers in his church are tired, wet and weak. Many of the people of Assam are suffering from fevers, colds and coughs due to the onset of the monsoon season.
"There is much to be done," says GFA President K.P. Yohannan, "both now and in the months to come." Gospel for Asia Compassion Services teams have already begun emergency relief work, but they are hindered by high waters and washed-out roads. The teams hope to start long-term relief efforts as soon as possible.
"Please pray with us for our missionaries who are ministering during these difficult days," Yohannan continues. "Thank you for caring for the suffering and helpless."
