PERU FLOOD – WE Crisis Relief
Thousands of our Brothers and Sisters NEED US NOW!
I am sure that most of you have been following the devastating destruction of the floods in Peru. It is being called by many the worst natural disaster in the history of the country.
Literally hundreds of thousands are without food, water, and shelter. These are basics to survival. Brother Ron Harris, WE Director of Crisis Response, and I have been in continuous touch with our missionaries there: Steve Hopkins – Latin Equip, David Pepper – Amazon Outreach, Josh Foliart – MULTIPLi, and others.
You must watch this video put together by Steve Hopkins.
It is a MUST SEE!
We have proven “boots on the ground” doing everything they can to get food and water to those struggling to just stay alive. In addition to this, many churches have been totally destroyed or badly damaged. In THINKING AHEAD you might want to consider bringing a team to Peru to rebuild one of the churches.
WE have already sent all of the finances we had in our Crisis Response Fund. I am humbly and prayerfully asking you to consider a special offering from your church or ministry this Sunday. Remember 100% of everything you give goes directly to the people who are fighting to just stay alive. WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IF WE WORK TOGETHER!

GATLINBURG: Ongoing Crisis Relief
All of us have been deeply moved by the devastation caused by the raging fires in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area. The 90 mph winds caused the deadly fire to not only sweep through the resort area but also many surrounding communities. The damage is unbelievable with the fire having covered in excess of 17,000 acres, more than 14,000 people displaced, 160 people hospitalized, 14 people died, and more than 2,500 homes and businesses damaged or destroyed.
- One of the shocking discoveries is that 70% of the people didn’t have wildfire insurance. Many of these had fire insurance, but not wildfire insurance.
- Work teams will be needed to help with cleanup of the remaining ashes and burned metal everywhere. The fire didn’t leave much behind, but what is left is destroyed and must be removed. Work teams on a volunteer basis will be needed to help those without adequate insurance to rebuild whatever possible. Paid construction workers will be needed to rebuild the buildings whose owners had adequate insurance. More will be forthcoming on volunteer teams. To sign up to volunteer, click here.
- WE will work in harmony with local pastors who can help direct our efforts to the neediest of the people. There is a large number of Hispanic people in the area working in the service industry due to tourism. Gatlinburg is second only to Las Vegas in annual visitors in the USA. This results in a need for a large number of workers to serve the tourists. The majority of the Hispanics were renters who lost everything in the fire. As they obtain new housing, they will need everything to help set up housing again. WE will also work with Hispanic pastors to help those with the greatest needs.
WE need your help. I am asking you to prayerfully consider giving a very generous and sacrificial OFFERING to help those who are hurting during this SPECIAL SEASON!

God bless you!
