Indonesia Earthquake/Tsunami

The Indonesian island of Sulawesi was impacted by a monstrous earthquake and tsunami on Friday, September 28. The magnitude 7.5 quake cut off power to the tsunami alert system, leaving residents totally without warning when the resulting 20-foot-high tsunami broke upon the island. Thousands have lost their homes, and more than 1,550 lost their lives. The Indonesia AG has 31 churches in Central Sulawesi. Four churches we know of are completely destroyed, four have minor damage, and the status of 23 remains unknown. The Indonesia AG has already sent the first truckloads of relief supplies to affected communities. A team from Convoy of Hope has arrived in Indonesia to help with assessment of needs.
