Tens of Thousands Dying in Somalia

That’s your brother over there…. He’s starving to death.

Reports are coming in that 29,000+ children have starved to death. That means a slow, agonizing death over a period of weeks with endless hunger pains. The parents can only watch helplessly. Estimates say that 2500 people will die per day this next month unless aid is brought in which, unfortunately, is being hindered by Islamic militants. Those are no small numbers, folks! As you retire for the night, after a sumptuous meal at the dinner table, do remember to pray for them. Skip a meal and fast for them.
