Churches of Christ through out the area (bordering the Indian Ocean) reported losses from the killer tsunami that followed a massive under sea earthquake near the Indonesian island of Sumatra.
Many church families “are suffering from the tidal wave that swept away their loved ones and homes,” said Dennis, a minister in Chennai, in southeastern India.
At least 40 church members were killed in the Chennai area, and 105 church families in four area villages lost their homes.
