India is in the grip of a terrible 2nd wave of Covid-19 with over 12 million people affected, the 2nd highest in the world after the US, and is struggling to cope. Churches and mission hospitals are at the centre of efforts to help people. Details are in the attached document sent to Sandor, our Minister:
The request for prayer is from Adv. C. Fernandas Rathina Raja, General Secretary of the Church of South India, Chennai:
In this situation, we kindly request you to uphold the Nation as well as the Church and its healing and rehabilitation engagements towards the Covid affected people. Since, the Church must ensure the availability of Covid vaccines, basic food, interim financial support, and other necessary missional accompaniment with the people, especially the most vulnerable in order to enhance their capacities and empower the Congregations and the neighbouring people to combat the Covid situation, we earnestly solicit your active prayers and timely accompaniment with us to combat the adverse situation. May our Gracious God bless the world with speedy recovery.
Please join with our brothers and sisters in Christ in India in praying for relief from this devastating situation.
