We need your help with an urgent need.
Recent flooding in Peru swept away homes in San José de los Molinos and resulted in the deaths of fourteen people. The flooding destroyed homes and devastated crops. Families already grappling with poverty have lost all their possessions. Clean water and electrical services have been interrupted, and access to the area is limited because of damage to roads and bridges.
MISIUR, one of Oakseed’s Ministry Partners, has worked in San José de los Molinos since 2007. MISIUR has helped build homes in the region and offers Bible studies and spiritual support. Through the Center for Integral Development of the Child and its Family (CEDIN), MISIUR serves fifty children in the area and helps meet their educational, psychological, health, and nutritional needs. The flooding has damaged both the CEDIN center and the homes of many of the families MISIUR works with in the region.
Oliver is one of the children reached by MISIUR. Oliver (age ten) and his one-year old sister Maria live with their mother, Marleny. Their home is built out of plastic and mats. Their home was damaged in the flooding, and all their bedding, mattresses, and food were destroyed. Food prices have greatly increased, and the family has no water and only intermittent electricity. The children are afraid, and Marleny worries that they will catch diseases from the plague of mosquitos caused by the flooding.
Please pray for MISIUR as they seek to help children like Oliver and Maria. Pray for the health and safety of those affected by the flooding and for the MISIUR team as they minister in the region. Pray that electricity and clean water services will quickly be restored, and pray for relief from the economic devastation caused by the flooding.
Please also consider making a special gift to help with this urgent need. MISIUR needs $12,000 to help families rebuild their flood-damaged homes. Will you help? Your donations will help MISIUR coordinate relief with local government agencies, repair roofs or install modular housing for families in need, and provide needy families with food, clothing, and basic medical necessities.
Thank you for supporting Oakseed’s Ministry Partners. With your help, we can break the cycle of poverty with the power of the gospel.
