Benson Sam - Please continue to pray for Pastor Benson Sam and our churches in southern India. It took 5-6 days to restore power due to 25 days of monsoon rainfall (see pictures below). Many church members have been displaced and are in shelter homes. Special gifts may be sent to the EFC-ER office or online at www.efcer.org/donate . Please identify as “India Flood”.
