Prayer requested after earthquakes strike Middle East, Asia

Po-hang Segero Church of the Nazarene

The deadliest earthquake of 2017 struck Iraq and Iran this week, killing more than 500 people and injuring thousands. Sunday's 7.3 earthquake trigged several landslides and was felt in Turkey, Israel, and Kuwait.

In South Korea, a 5.4 magnitude earthquake damaged infrastructures and houses in addition to injuring dozens of people and leaving about 1,500 people homeless.

A local church leader on the Gyeongsang-do Zone reported that Po-hang Segero Church of the Nazarene was affected, leaving the concrete walls with multiple cracks and holes.

Continued prayer is requested for those affected by both disasters.
