More than 2million were forced out of the their homes by flooding at the end of last year. Pray for all those seeking to rebuild their shattered lives in this poor nation, and for aid and help from the wider community and world.

Peruvian politics has been mired in dysfunction for years. Leaders are not allowed more than one term which has resulted in inexperienced people trying to govern in a very complex environment. Corruption, rioting and mistrust have all also played their parts. Pray for wise reforms of the system and for godly leaders in this nation to lead with justice, vision, strength, and humility.
