HUNGER—OUT OF AFRICA

A Kenyan's perspective.

Over the last several years, rainfall patterns here in Kenya and in most of Africa have changed dramatically. Prolonged droughts and unusually heavy flooding have affected food security in the region. An estimated ten million people in Kenya alone are likely to face famine and starvation this year because of crop failure in 2009. The situation is not very hopeful, especially in eastern African areas such as Ethiopia, Somalia, northern Kenya, and northern Uganda.

Many Christians are turning to the Bible for answers and finding stories in which similar situations have been resolved through prayer. But can such prayer be effective today? I think so.
