Indonesia (MNN) — Joe Handley of Asian Access shares information they received from pastors responding to Indonesia’s recent earthquake and tsunami:

  • The earthquake created liquefaction or like quicksand effect in the soil
  • For first responder aid (up to 6 months), we recommend agencies such as International aid agencies
  • such as World Vision and World Relief (especially Lutheran World Relief)
  • Asian Access' strategy is to provide long-term presence, coming alongside pastors and leaders, empowering and equipping them to respond over the long haul.
  • Right now people need blankets, food, supplies for those who have lost everything.
  • importance of the presence of Christ-followers to meet needs and listening to people's stories and pray for them.

Responding:

1. Call to prayer for the people of Indonesia:

  • The victims impacted by the tragedy
  • Church members trying to meet needs

2. Provide funding for emergency aid (first 6 months)

3. Long-haul efforts such as Asian Access will start emerging in the next week.
