Missions Wednesday: Pray for the Horn of Africa

More than 11 million people in the Horn of Africa are currently threatened by the most severe drought and famine in decades. In southern Somalia famine has already been declared and is feared to spread to other nearby countries (like Ethiopia and Kenya) who are already affected. While much of America is focused on our debt crisis, millions of vulnerable people, largely women and children, are facing death from malnourishment and disease. Many Somalian women have walked long miles into Kenya, desperate for refugee camps to provide shelter and aid for them and their children, if they can even get into these camps.

How you can help:

Donate to Christ-centered organizations that will provide physical and spiritual food to those suffering.

Pray that aid would be allowed into some of the hard hit areas.

Pray that God would soften the hearts of those in the countries surrounding Somalia to open their borders and provide shelter.
