They are still there. They are still stranded. Call on Foreign Minister Julie Bishop & Pray.
While the Indonesian and Malaysian governments have promised temporary shelter to the Rohingyans, they will only provide this once other countries promise to re-settle them. In the meantime they are still suffering at sea.

"#YesYesYes to #ResettlingRohingyas"
And pray. Pray for the Rohingyas to find a home.
Prayer Points - please pray specifically that:
Betelhem Tibebu is from Ethiopia and came to Australia in 2013 by boat. Here she shares her story and encourages us to respond with compassion, love and welcome to those seeking safety on our shores.
Christians in particular have reason to keep talking about refugees given the Bible has much to say on this issue. Dr Ebony Birchall reflects on a new book 'Refuge Reimagined'.
Common Grace member Christine Morris reflects on how her desperation at the experience of people seeking asylum in Australia drives her to action.
