Help Repair Flooded Churches in Chennai

December 2015 Faces Eurasia

Friends,

India’s largest Assemblies of God church is flooded from the worst flood in over 100 years in South India. Waters have reached nearly 20 feet high along the New Life AG Campus. Cars and even bridges have been submerged.

Torrential rains have doused the state of Tamil Nadu, causing floods that have killed over 269 people and affected millions.

New Life AG Pastor David Mohan reports, “The flood affected the church very much, coming up to the first floor, destroying two generators and electrical panels. About 3,000 believers lost their belongings and some of our people lost their houses. Please pray for us.”

The need is so great that Indian churches from other parts of India are sending aid. Full Gospel AG Church in Bangalore, Karnataka, led by Pastor Paul Tangiah, sent 28,000 pounds of food to Chennai this weekend for flood victims.

It is critical that we stand together with our Christian brothers and sisters in India. Besides New Life, there are over 100 AG churches in the city of Chennai. We are still waiting for reports on how much damage the other churches have sustained.

When the flood waters recede, there will be much work to do to repair the damage. Even now our AG churches are on the front lines of responding to the vast needs of those affected by the flood waters.

Thankfully, numerous humanitarian agencies will provide aid and relief to the flood victims. However, little if any of that aid will reach our churches to help them rebuild.

Would you prayerfully consider making a donation today to help repair, perhaps even rebuild, the AG churches in Chennai damaged by the flood waters? We want to be ready as soon as the waters recede to help our churches rebuild and move forward. Would you give to help us help them?

Thank you for standing with our Indian brothers and sisters in Christ during this crisis.

Yours for the harvest,

Omar Beiler
