We wanted to thank you for your prayers and support for the people of South Sudan. We have received and update that the most recent grain distribution you helped to fund was able to help 850 people. However, due to continued unrest and fighting in the area the number of people needing assistance has grown to more than 5000. The cost of grain has also almost doubled to $100 per 50 kg. CSI is committed to continuing the work in South Sudan. Can we count on you? You can donate a bag of grain, 1/2 a bag, 1/4 a bag or any amount that you feel led to give to our South Sudan Fund.
Funding has been sent to rebuild the church in Kenscoff that was destroyed when Hurricane Matthew ripped through the region. You have the opportunity to help rebuild three other churches that were badly damaged in Jeremie, Cayes and Miragoane. These towns are home to 155,000 people. Missionaries Ron and Terry Brian are ready to work. They have local volunteers and can also purchase supplies locally.

CSI is currently working to asses how we can best help flood victims in Sri Lanka. The latest report from those on the ground is that CSI has the opportunity to help 34 families who have been affected by recent flooding. These families have suffered the loss of personal belongings as well as damage to their homes. There are also 4 churches that have suffered damage. This is a new project and we are still gathering additional information from those on the ground. At this point the dollar amount needed has not been estimated but we know that it will be thousands of dollars to do the repairs and to help replace belongings. CSI has sent $3,000.00 to start the initial relief for these families. But we know that much more will be needed. At this point we are asking for your help to raise $5,000.00. We will be updating as we get the information with how you can help. Please pray for Sri Lanka and for those assessing the situation. If you would like to make a donation to this project you can donate to the
