PRAY FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY CLIMATE CHANGE:
While praying for our governments to talk action, also pray for those communities and regions that have suffered or are suffering from climate change impacts:
- Myanmar: from June until September 2015, the country experienced the worst flooding in decades killing over 100 people and affecting millions (more info here).
