Anger. Stress. Hopelessness
This how a local Lebanese Pastor describes the feelings of the Lebanese people after last weeks massive explosion in the main port of Beirut.
Between ongoing economic issues and political tensions, this tragedy is now another burden the tiny country has to bear. With hundreds killed, thousands injured and the entire city impacted, many are asking questions. Questions of the government, of the official's and of what it all means for the future.
How you can help.

Pray for those who have lost loved ones, that through this time, they will know and feel the love of God upon them.
Pray for those working in the hospitals and medical centres, that they get the medicines they need to help the injured and that they can cope with few resources and many patients.
