Our church is working with the Amity Foundation, a Chinese non-governmental organisation, to provide emergency relief supplies such as water, food, blankets and other essential items to victims of an earthquake at a remote area in Yunnan, China. Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims, and we know that Jesus is near to the brokenhearted.
The earthquake which measures 6.5 on the Richter scale hit the Ludian county on Sunday, 3 August 2014. As of Wednesday, 7 August 2014, the death toll stands at 615 and more than 12,000 houses have toppled.
Church, let’s believe God that many more survivors will be found and helped, and the conditions in the disaster area will remain favourable for the search.
The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart,
And saves such as have a contrite spirit.
