MIA Prayer Intention for the Coming Week: Impact of Tropical Cyclone Winston

''As a nation, we are facing an ordeal of the most grievous kind.'
- Prime Minister Bainimarama

With winds of up to 296 kph (184 mph), Cyclone Winston lashed the tiny Pacific island nation of Fiji on 20 February, leaving 44 people confirmed dead, whole villages wiped out, widespread damage and flooding.#

Let us keep all those affected by this disaster in our prayers. Let us remember also those members of aid organisations who are providing practical and strategic assistance.

More information about the impact of Cyclone Winston can be found here.
