Urgent: Please Pray as Massive Flooding Hits Argentina
Ask God to Help the Communities Devastated by the Floods
The Pilcomayo is a 620-mile river than flows through Bolivia, Argentina, and Paraguay. It is a source of livelihood for riverine communities, including indigenous people who have lived there for centuries.
Last month, due to heavy rains, the Pilcomayo River overflowed into the areas along the banks in the northern Argentine province of Salta. The flooding has been described as the worst in a decade, with more than 10,000 homes evacuated. At least 60,000 people have been impacted by the flood’s damage to homes, crops, livestock, transportation, and communication.
We received the following request from one of our Argentine Bible Society partners:
“We ask you to pray for the team of natives that have been working on the translation of the Bible to the Toba del Oeste indigenous language in Argentina. The Churchal Village (the place of residence for many of them) has been affected by a terrible flood. The level of the Pilcomayo River began to rise uncontrollably … as the river overflowed, the waters covered the village.”
Will You Pray with Us?
The Bible assures us in Isaiah:
“When you pass through deep waters, I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you.” Isaiah 43:2a (GNT)
Please join us as we pray for God to be with the people of Argentina during this time of trouble.
God, we ask you to protect those affected by the rising waters. Let them feel your presence, experience your peace, and receive the support they need. We also pray for the Bible translators in Churchal Village. Please help their work continue so people can receive your Word in their heart language.
