Floods in the North

"For those of you who haven't heard, the almost 2 weeks straight of rain here in Albania has caused severe flooding and damage in the north of the country. Thousands of people were forced to leave their homes and belongings to find safety and dry homes.

Praise God that we have now had a full week with lots of sunshine and no rain!!! Relief efforts are underway and the churches in Tirana have stepped up to assist. Today, several representatives from the evangelical community are taking 600 bags of donated food and supplies up to hand out to victims, and they are planning another trip next Wednesday with additional supplies.

Please pray for the many people affected by this catastrophe. Pray that the Church in Albania will be a light and encouragement to the thousands who are struggling with their loss."

This is from a friend's email update. Thanks Jen!
