World Prayer Focus
This is an older prayer focus. However, let us not forget those we have prayed for.
This prayer focus came from Convoy of Hope, Assemblies of God Disaster Relief organization, who is on the scene and making a difference.
As the body of Christ, we can help through our prayers.
Read the stories and pray for the teams of people ministering to those in much need.
Be led by the Holy Spirit about what to pray.
“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” RSV
American Samoa Earthquake and Tsunami
An 8.0 magnitude earthquake struck at 1:48 pm EDT Tuesday, September 29, 2009, in the Samoa Islands generating a powerful tsunami across the Samoan Islands. American Samoa reports the tsunami swept cars and people out to sea, killed at least 99 and left dozens missing Wednesday. Western Samoa faired far worse. The quake was centered about 140 miles from American Samoa, a U.S. territory that is home to 65,000 people.
Convoy logistic team is assessing the situation and is equipped to provide emergency food and water to the needy children and their families.
Padang, Indonesia, population 750,000, is reporting at least 1,100 people dead and 2,400 people injured. Thousands more are feared to be trapped in collapsed buildings following Wednesday's earthquake off the coast of Indonesia's Sumatra Island.
Convoy logistic team is on the ground assessing damages and prepared to meet immediate needs.
Philippine Islands Flooding
Convoy is deploying containers of food and water purification units that are capable to produce up to 10,000 gallons of water per day. We are still working with Fed Ex on coordinating future loads.
Our Response Team continues to serve Georgia residents with home debris removal in the Pontiac Circle neighborhood of Austell.

Our entire distribution operation has involved the following POD distribution methods: drive-through, mobile, and walk-up.
