It has been less than a week since heavy rains swept entire homes away.
Thursday May 19, mountains of mud had swallowed three villages and it seemed unlikely to rescue workers that anyone would be found alive. In other areas, there was more hope as over 150 people have been rescued.
Sri Lankan Red Cross is working to pin point where to locate those who are missing. With heavy fog, electrical outages, and unstable grounds, searching for survivors has been challenging.
With all of the disasters occurring around the world each week, let us not forget to pray for others in Sri Lanka. Whether or not we know those effected personally or have never met a Sri Lankan before, take a moment today to pray for them.
