After recent scandals, I have become skeptical of the native missionary movement. I have been supporting native missionaries for decades now, but these scandals have really burnt my trust. Thank you for addressing trust and accountability in Prayerline letter.

Residents of five villages in an area of Punjab Province, Pakistan that has received no flood relief assistance have no way to earn a living a month after rains inundated their fields and homes. The area in Jhang District is populated mostly by farm laborers whose fields are still four to five feet under water. "The survivors of the flooding are very worried about their families, especially for the children, women and elderly people to escape from hardships of the season, as the weather has been changing here in Pakistan," said the director of an indigenous ministry that Christian Aid Mission supports. "Additionally, there is a threat of diseases spreading because of the standing water."
The five villages in the 18 Hazari area have not received the aid that the government has provided to other flooded areas, and the ministry plans to provide food, soap, dish soap and other items to more than 500 families. "No lives were lost, but residents of these communities have been unable to work for the past month and thus do not have money to feed their families," the director said. "These fields are not only their income source, but also a source of feed for their animals. All crops in these areas have been destroyed."
