Flash Floods Kill More than 100 in Afghanistan

Northern Afghanistan has been pounded by torrential rains in the last 48 hours; at least 100 people have died in flash flooding in Northern Afghanistan, officials say.

In the dark hours of Wednesday morning, flash flooding struck the city of Charikar, while most residents were still in their beds sleeping. More than 500 houses were destroyed in a matter of minutes. In the darkness and confusion, many families did not know what was happening and drowned.

The death toll continues to rise, as rescue workers search through the rubble of destroyed buildings looking for survivors.

This month, BTJ sent aid to Afghanistan. This is our first month working in Afghanistan and we are excited to partner with secret believers that are on the ground there. BTJ has not raised funds for our work in Afghanistan, but are able to provide support because of our GateKeepers.

GateKeepers are supporters who stand with the underground church in China. To learn more simply click here.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.
