Story number 1 for 18 Jan 2000

By January 18, 2000

We begin today in Venezuela where churches are responding to new
opportunities for ministry in the wake of the devastating landslides and damages
that left at least 30-thousand dead and more than 150-thousand people
homeless. Latin America Mission’s Ken MacHarg reports. “Local churches are
continuing to provide services in the affected area even though some of them were
damaged or destroyed. Venezuelan Christians are exploring church planting
opportunities that will surface in light of government plans to relocate whole
communities. LAM missionary Charles Fuller says that the churches need prayer for
wisdom and favor with the authorities so they can minister. He says that the nation has
been greatly affected by the tragedy and that people are more open to the Gospel. For
Mission Network News, I’m Ken MacHarg.”
