Youth for Christ contacts throughout Africa are reaching out, asking us to mobilize prayer for parts of Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe that have been devastated by Cyclone Idai, which hit hit the region on March 14th.
As aid workers are able to go in, they are calling it a catastrophe. Whole towns have been washed off the map. The total number of deaths could reach into the tens of thousands. They have no idea yet how many have been lost. Many are still clinging to roof tops hoping to be rescued.
Thankfully, all our Youth for Christ workers are accounted for. Many of their neighbors are injured. Some have lost their homes. Others have lost their fields of crops. Would you please pray for our workers that have been impacted – and for the many thousands who are displaced? It is truly heart breaking.
The massive flooding of the region is visible from space – but it will take time to reach all the areas. Aid is being sent in, but communication to get it to those who need it is hampered because all the communication networks are down.
