Drought in the Marshall Islands!


We have sent out a prayer request before but we want to bring it to your attention again.  Many of our northern atolls have not had rain in over five months.  The water lens that they do have on a few of the atolls have become brackish.  At this time there is no rain forecast for that area.  Here in the southern atolls have had rain to sustain us.  To the far south many have had plenty of rain.  We ask you to agree with us for rain to fall in the northern atolls.

The president of the Marshall Islands, three weeks ago, declared a state of emergency for these atolls.  Some governments are responding with reverse osmosis machines.  Several survey teams have went out and surveyed the atolls.  The report is not good and in some place there is no water.  The people are surviving on coconut water from day to day.  There are churches in that area that need our prayers.  Not just for water but for wisdom during this time.  Many men and women of faith are still there sharing the Gospel  We as a mission are researching the cost of reverse osmosis machines.  We want to and are believing God for the provision to place machines in churches throughout this drought stricken area.  Here in the Marshall islands over 90 percent of all water is caught when it rains.  The Water lens is replenished when it rains.  

Please agree with us for the drought to be broken and the rain to fall in the northern atolls and all over the Marshalls.  God bless and thank you for your faithful prayers and support.
