Medical Mission Sisters in Venezuela ask for our prayers for the continuing hardships in life that the people among whom they serve, and so many other Venezuelans, are experiencing. A State of Exception and Economic Emergency is now in place in the nation. Almost all continue to be affected by the lack of food and medical supplies. Some people have to wait in a queue for more than five hours for basic commodities, if there still are any to be purchased (at exorbitant prices) when they reach the front of the line. Public offices are now open only on Monday and Tuesday and schools hold classes only two days a week. This has been decreed “to help save water and electricity.” Despite all this, “we continue to hope and dream,” our Sisters write. “Hopefully actions which will help transform for the better will go along hand in hand with the dreams and hopes we share.”
