Nazarenes Respond in Aftermath of Matthew

As Hurricane Matthew pushed its way from the Caribbean to the Carolinas, it left mass devastation in its path. Although the storm has been downgraded to a post-tropical cyclone, the flooding created is still wreaking havoc along the southeastern coast of the United States.

Tropical Cyclone Pam, a category 5 storm, slammed into the Vanuatu islands in the Melanesia South Pacific Field late in the evening of Friday, March 13. As winds started to subside in the early hours Saturday morning, a trail of destruction was left behind. Dozens of deaths have been reported, and heavy winds and rain have destroyed many homes and crops.

According to on-the-ground reports, streets are littered with debris and upturned trees, and entire villages have been blown away.

Cyclone Pam came ashore reportedly with 160 mph winds, gusting to 195 mph (257 kph gusts to 315 kph). The Bureau of Meteorology is calling Cyclone Pam “one of the most intense cyclones ever recorded in the southern hemisphere.”

There are 11 local Nazarene churches in Vanuatu. The church leaders in Vanuatu are requesting prayer and support as they work to minister to members and neighbors who have been affected by this devastating storm.
