After the Storm  

Survivors of fierce flooding in Lambayeque Region, in northern Peru, are looking at a bleak future as they gather the few remaining items from their water damaged home. The worst downpours since 1998 struck the region earlier this year, and thousands of people remain in need as Peru struggles to recover from the devastation to its economy and infrastructure. An official of Virgenes de las Mercedes town in Olmos District said she was very grateful for mosquito nets and food from an indigenous ministry that Christian Aid Mission assists. "I am also grateful for medicine and the word of hope of Jesus Christ," she said. "Your provision is a great help in the time of need and affliction of our town, since the majority lost their houses. Thank you for your generous heart and God bless you."

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
