Dear friends,


If I may add one prayer request for you to consider. Please pray for the government here to act quickly and send troops and establish Martial Law once and for all in Concepción (6 hr drive south from here, Santiago). There are under 1000 troops for a city of almost 1.5 million. Supermarkets are being looted and burnt down everywhere, and people are starting to report thieves looting and robbing houses with firearms.


The situation is deteriorating rapidly. Please pray that the government would act responsibly, establishing and maintaining social order, and where necessary punish those who do evil (Rom 13.1-7). In particular pray for the Church in that place: that families may continue to act cooperatively in love, providing shelter, food & water and even protection to one another in these terrible times. 


Thank you very much.

Samuel Lago
