Mussoorie Safe from the Torrent

Mussoorie and team are all safe and secure by the grace of God. We thank God for keeping us all safe in Mussoorie, though some parts of the Mountains have been damaged due to the rains. The disaster which happened is about 300 km from Mussoorie.

There are no roads and bridges to reach the people stranded there, only Helicopters are put in service to rescue the people. Some roads have been cleared. There are about 300 roads and 900 bridges washed away. It will take at least 3 years to restore the roads and bridges as reported by the government.

There are thousands of people still stranded and needing to be rescued. Many people were washed away and buried alive in the debris of buildings and mountains. There are thousands of people still missing. Bodies are being washed away as far as Haridwar, which is 350 km from the disaster area. Many are homeless, and lots of children are orphaned. Our hearts go out to them as we stand with them in prayer and seek God's help to bring restoration to our people.
