Nothing green remained

So Moses stretched out his staff over Egypt, and the Lord made an east wind blow across the land all that day and all that night. By morning the wind had brought the locusts; they invaded all Egypt and settled down in every area of the country in great numbers. Never before had there been such a plague of locusts, nor will there ever be again. They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail—everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt.

Since March I’ve reported about the swarms of locusts that have been plaguing East Africa. Now there are swarms in Yemen, India, Pakistan and Nepal. This will affect hundreds of millions of people. COVID-19 infects its millions. The locusts their tens of millions. Find an appeal, make a donation.
