Floods and Faithfulness

Thanks to all who have been praying for the parts of India, Nepal, and Bangladesh that have been devasted by the monsoon flooding over the past four weeks. Millions of people have been displaced, thousands have died, and GFA missionaries are working to address both physical and spiritual needs.

One field correspondent wrote: "Thousands of people dead, families rendered homeless as their houses were swept away, cattle drowned, crops totally rooted out, villages submerged under the flood waters-and electricity, drinking water and communications systems totally failed."

Check out the photo show with pictures of the damage and the work.

On a personal note: Congrats to co-workers Jen and Stephen on their marriage tomorrow! Jen was my roommate for six months and Stephen is my second cousin, so tomorrow is all the more special for me. Oh, and my parents, grandmother, and sister came down for the wedding! Hurrah for family!
