The extent of the damage has shocked and confused people in Indonesia and even perplexed the earthquake experts. Land cracked, shores washed away, mud protruded from the earth burying an entire village. There was no food, no clean water, no electricity, limited supply gasoline, scarce medicines with just an open-air hospital. People searched for family members and yet dead bodies needed to be buried. With earthquakes happening almost every day, there is an anticipation of even more significant earthquakes in the months ahead. Local Christians are seeking to understand God’s calling for such a time as this.
Please continue to uphold the nation of Indonesia in prayer particularly the tsunami-affected area. Pray for brothers and sisters in Indonesia that they may respond promptly and appropriately in love and care at this time.
