Headlining today’s news, evangelical relief agencies are puzzled why the famine in Ethiopia isn’t getting much press in the United States. Food for the Hungry’s Dave Evans says the images from the European press are sobering. “Some of the news reports have be showing a lot of camel carcasses. The camel is basically the last thing to die and when that starts to happen you’re in trouble because they’re able to live under the harshest conditions without food or water for a long period of time. The skeleton frames of young children and especially older women.” Evans says financial assistance is needed so they can deliver food through Ethiopian churches. “That first objective in our vision is to see churches reaching out to meet needs. And, we see that not only as spiritual needs, but also physical needs. As the scriptures teach us to reach out with bread and the Gospel.”
