Lots of rain is expected this time of year in the Southeast Asian nation of Laos, since this is their monsoon season, but this has been a year of drought.
Below are just a few of the many testimonies we receive about lives being impacted and transformed by the Disaster Relief Ministry of Heaven’s Family.
Will it stop?? That’s what I’ve been thinking in March and early April as 3 separate cyclones (hurricanes) pommeled the southeastern coast of Africa—particularly Mozambique and Malawi, two of the poorest countries on earth.
Just three days ago I reported to you about some very poor brothers and sisters in Malawi who lost their homes to a cyclone last fall, and how you helped through the Disaster Relief Ministry. But as I write (March 14), another cyclone (Idai) is ripping across Malawi, deluging that small, poor African nation with rain. The very morning my report hit your inbox, I received a disturbing email from the same partner in Malawi, telling me heavy rains from that cyclone were, at that moment, flooding vast lowland areas of the country, severely damaging or destroying homes, meager possessions, food supplies, and taking dozens of lives.
