Cyclone in Bangladesh
Jim Long, ABWE administrator for South Asia, sent this message on Monday, November 19.
“Tropical Cyclone Sidr is roaring up the Bay of Bengal with winds of over 160 miles per hour. We are not at the center of the expected landfall. However, we are close enough that we are expecting high winds, heavy rains, and flooding. The city of Chittagong has many problems with the drainage system, so flooding happens very fast. We would ask you to pray for safety from the storms and flooding for our church members, colleagues, and neighbors and that the Lord would give us wisdom and spiritual fruit from our response to needs that arise from this storm. Thank you for standing with us in prayer in this time of need.”
Need to Sell Homes
The current real estate market slowdown has created a severe hardship for several GARBC Resource Center staff members who are in urgent need of selling homes. Please pray for the prompt sale of properties in Ames, Iowa; Flint, Michigan; Waterford, Michigan; Fort Meyers, Florida; and the greater Chicago area.
