Chile Fires—"Where No Help Is Coming"

Chile fire destruction 2017

In the face of one of the most serious situations Chile has ever faced, Adelphos Chilean Missions Agency decided to go to the burning area with humanitarian and spiritual help.

At the end of this coming week, they will travel by car to the areas affected by the 2017 Chile fires with the goal of reaching places where they said no help is coming. After Adelphos responded first to the Chile earthquake in February 2010, they assume with reasonable likelihood that they will be the first, and maybe only, Christian responders to this 2017 Chile fire.

The plan is to deliver food, water, isotonic drinks, and heat-resistant safety elements to people and fire fighters on the scene. And more than that, they'll minister to hurting people with the love of Christ and truth of the gospel.

So far 1,000 houses are burned to the ground and they've reported at least 11 people dead in the area. A tragedy like this is one that should remind us that God is the sovereign and true Comforter.

Keep checking for more updates from Adelphos as they develop.



The Chilean missions agency strives to share the gospel with people of every tribe, tongue, and nation and provide tools for pastors, leaders, and churches.
