Flooding in Pakistan has displaced millions
The world is beginning to understand just how devastating this summer’s flooding in Pakistan has been. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recently put it in perspective, stating:
Through our trusted partners in Pakistan, we’ve sent $5,000 from our Disaster Relief Fund to distribute safe water, food, and clothing to some of the neediest victims of the flooding. These vital supplies are being delivered by six Pakistani Christian teams placed strategically throughout the nation of Pakistan. Over 14 million people have been displaced by the intense flooding in Pakistan, and at least 6 million of these are children. More than 70,000 homes have been destroyed by the flooding. As you can imagine, the need is great and will continue for months.
As in every disaster, God is at work. This flooding in Pakistan provides the followers of Jesus with a unique opportunity. In a recent email appeal, our partner put it this way:
