On 6 February 2023, an earthquake with a devastating magnitude of Mw 7.8 and maximum Mercalli intensity of XI (Extreme) left thousands dead or missing from Turkey and Syria. The aftershocks included a powerful quake in the nine hours that followed the mainshock. The reach of this catastrophic event was far-reaching, affecting even those as far away as Israel, Lebanon, Cyprus, and the Black Sea coast of Turkey. With thousands dead or missing, rescue teams are overwhelmed and running low on resources to help save lives. Your generous and prayerful support is essential in this critical moment — it could be a lifeline for those women, children and elderly people who have nowhere else to turn. Please consider lending a helping hand during this difficult time. Any amount you can give is greatly appreciated!
Let us pray: For the people of Türkiye and Syria suffering from the devastating earthquakes, may they experience the Lord in their midst through the support of the global community during this time of great loss, let us pray to the Lord.
