Story number 1 for 20 Mar 2000

By March 20, 2000

We begin today’s newscast in Mozambique where some flood relief operations are winding down. However, Christian aid groups continue arriving to help the flood victims. Shelter Now International’s Jeff Johnstone says their group is in the process of assessment. “Now that the waters are starting to recede, we’re targeting the south end of Mozambique. We’re looking at partnering with another organization down there to develop some shelter response. We’ve got about a million people homeless in Mozambique right now, and conditions are just terrible-we haven’t been able to get in to really do an accurate assessment until now.” Johnstone says their work brings hope. “We are able to bring the love of Jesus. It is extremely impacting when you can look at somebody in the eyes, offer them a loaf of bread and just impart the love of Jesus to them. It also gives us the opportunity to bring in the Gospel.”
