WMF Peru Update

Flooding

Recently, Peru has experienced fatal flash flooding and mudslides throughout the entire country.  We are thankful to report that everyone at our WMF Peru site is safe, but please be in prayer for the country as a whole as the flooding has caused wide-spread devastation and there is the possibility of continuing heavy rains for the next two weeks. Please pray for the recovery of the society and economy as there have been 79 fatalities, hundred of thousands of people displaced, and many of the villages and roadways destroyed.  Pray also for current physical needs to be met as there is a shortage of clean drinking water and agriculture products have increased in price due to the damages caused by the flooding.
