I am David McCormick. Pray with me today: I pray that we will feel God’s presence and comfort as we work to rebuild after the storm. I pray for health and sustainability for our community as we recover.
David McCormick, Global Health Missionary (UMC) in Mozambique reported that on February 15, 2017, Cyclone Dineo made landfall on the Inhambane Province. This storm brought winds in excess of 120 miles an hour. The roofs of many of the hospital's support buildings were ripped off. Access to the hospital by road was closed due to down trees. As a blessing from God, our infirmaries sustained minimal damage and are able to treat patients. Damage to the traditional homes is prolific; many roofs, walls and fences collapsed or blew away from wind gusts. There have been a few deaths and as of now there is no power and no running water, which is crucial in the aftermath to position the community to avoid disease and instability.
God is present, even in disaster. We saw people rallying, helping, and giving what little they have to others. Please pray for Chicuque Hospital and the people of Inhambane as we continue to find ways to rebuild. As our partners and support team, we ask for your love, understanding and to be open to future plans of how to help.
Peace I leave you with; my peace I give to you. I do not give to
you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and
do not let them be afraid. John 14:27
