The situation in Chile continues to be a cause for concern. Although the numbers are much lower than those we see here in the UK, the effect on the poor in society is very much greater as there is little social provision.
The current situation has greatly worsened. 2,750 are already dead and close to 160,000 infected. The health system has already collapsed in many hospitals. The government lost the battle against covid-19 in Greater Santiago.
To this is added the great social pandemic. Unemployment insurance is over. In each neighbourhood there are common pots. There is no work, and people must go out just the same to see what they can do to get food. People are trusting the charities and the churches that are helping them, but we no longer have the means to do it.
I ask for your prayer for our Country and the social and health drama that affects us. We cry out to the King of Kings.
Chile for Christ has just authorised further financial aid to the churches Ronny works with so that they can continue this ministry, and also to the church in Osorno.
Please continue to pray for the people of Chile and the ministry of the church there.
