The eruption of La Soufrière, a volcano on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, has caused layers of ash to blanket the island. Almost 20,000 people across St. Vincent and the Grenadines have been evacuated from their homes in what is now the red zone. In addition, three of the seven churches in the St. Vincent Baptist Convention have been evacuated.

There is extensive damage to property and crops, which is expected to impact the economy in the upcoming months. Access to clean water has also become a challenge as the water sources are now polluted and the power supply has been cut off in the northern part of the island.

The St. Vincent Baptist Convention asks the global Baptist family to join them in prayer for:
  • The health and safety of the people in shelters. Ash has seeped into many of the shelters through the ventilation and people are experiencing respiratory distress.

  • The steadfast commitment of church members to evangelism and serving the people. That church members will be a witness of the love of Christ to those who are displaced while they are coping with their own loss and discomfort.

  • The leaders within the church to have strength to respond to needs and not become weary. That the church will be an example of accountability and demonstrate true stewardship.

  • The Lord will give faith leaders and government agencies wisdom to best respond to this disaster.
As violence continues to escalate in the streets of Myanmar, we are calling upon Baptists worldwide to stand in solidarity with those who are suffering.

Christ our God,
sun of righteousness,
by your divine touch
you gave light to the eyes of the blind man
who had been deprived of light since birth.
Enlighten also the eyes of our souls,
and make us sons and daughters of light
so that we cry out to you in faith:
great and beyond words is your compassion towards us!
Loving Lord, glory to you!
