Pastor Cyrus Wanyonyi is president of Good Soil Baptist Churches International, an IPFBM partnering association in Kenya, East Africa. Torrential rains in his area, he says, caused great damage to his home and his son’s home. In his own home, a wall gave way, spilling the floodwaters into his home. Crops have also been destroyed.

“Water is everywhere,” Cyrus says. “Deaths and destruction are all over.”

Those affected in Kenya urgently need shelter and food, as well as medication if diseases break out.

“Pray for the Lord to control this rough rain soon,” Cyrus says.

No insurance money is available to cover the flood damage, so this is an opportunity for believers to show compassion and Christian love. Donate online, by phone, or by check to help this association in Kenya.
