Iris Global Relief Sierra Leone Flooding
Sierra Leone Flood Relief
On August 14, 2017 heavy rains caused serious flooding and mudslides resulting in the deaths of over 200 people and countless left homeless.
Andrew & Angella Sesay, our leaders in Freetown, are safe and heading to the devastated area to bring hope and relief. They also asked for prayer for the families who have been affected - many have lost everything including loved ones - and prayer for restoration. Rebuilding homes will take time and resources, but the restoration of hearts dealing with trauma is something only God can do.

For those who have been praying for those effected by the recent disaster in Sierra Leone… Andrew Thomas Sesay the director of our IRIS Global base is there. I spoke with him today and he and a team are going to the effected area to be ministering to the survivors each day. A larger team made up of members of our Iris family will be arriving soon. Today the government held a mass funeral and burial for 300. All reports say the loss of life and damage is worse than is being reported in the media. Please continue to pray if you feel led.
