Sao Paulo fire leaves 250 homeless

Brazil (MNN) — Six children assisted by Compassion International
are now homeless after fire swept through their community last week.

A fire in the slums of Sao Paulo, Brazil spread fiercely, destroying
over 100 homes and leaving around 250 people homeless. Among these individuals
were Compassion's six supported children and their families.

Compassion has a child development center in the affected
region, and they are currently preparing to respond, lending aid to the impacted
children and their families.

Compassion said they will contact you if your sponsored
child has been affected.

As Compassion reaches out to these families, pray that they will
have opportunity to share Christ's story of redemption with many people.

Also, pray for the children and families now homeless. As
they have lost many, if not all, of their possessions, ask God to provide for
their every need and send His comfort to them during this devastating time.

Would you like to sponsor a child and help Compassion reach
out to even more of the Sao Paulo community or somewhere else around the world?
