Baptist Global Response
A BGR project will allow 12 families living in a risk zone by an ocean to relocate to a property of approximately 100 acres, which they purchased from their government. Project organizers plan to plant both short-term and long-term crops to provide income for these families in the future.
Pray this project will show Christ's love to these families, and ask God to keep them safe while they continue living near the ocean. Finally, pray these efforts will show the families that other people care about them and are interested in their welfare.
Relief efforts for Ecuador earthquake survivors continue. Many churches are responding to vast needs in the hardest hit areas and are sending teams there. Please pray for the Ecuador Baptist Convention's work as members engage 30 damaged areas with relief efforts and ongoing community development projects.
Two aftershocks rattled people in Ecuador on Wednesday. Locals said they felt just as powerful as the original 7.8-magnitude earthquake and they destroyed almost all the work survivors had accomplished since the April 16 disaster. Pray for these people. Ask God to give them endurance and strength.
Please pray for those who suffered losses during the recent earthquake in Ecuador. Ask God to comfort the families who have lost loved ones. Pray also for those injured and for the tens of thousands traumatized by the event.
Pray for BGR area directors as they assist overall coordination and leadership during response efforts. Ask God to grant them wisdom and knowledge as well as good health, especially in these early days.
A 6.4-magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan in the early hours of Saturday, with at least eleven casualties. At this time the government is taking responsibility for the response. BGR is monitoring the situation but is not planning a significant response unless called upon by local partners. Please pray for those affected and pray for those responding.
