On April 5 and 6 East Timor was hit by the most severe flooding the country had experienced in over 50 years. Many homes flooded or destroyed by landslides and the ACBM provided support to some of our brothers and sisters whose homes had been flooded or damaged.
Brothers and sisters organising the delivery of food to a community in East Timor that has been cut off by flood waters
The flood waters are now subsiding but there are whole communities without food and water and the local authorities are unable to provide for everyone. Our brothers and sisters are all safe and we have provided support to those who need it.
Torrential rain during April has led to landslides and the worst flooding in 50 years, with the capital Dili being badly impacted.
While no fieldworkers have been able to visit Timor Leste during 2020, we are very thankful that the country has experienced little effect from the corona virus.

Review of 2020 Bouganville events
There was a Bible school held in Solomon Islands on Malaita Island in July 2019. The Youth conference was held in January 2020. These are very much appreciated by the local brethren & sisters as it is an opportunity for them to be able to fellowship together.
