Authorities discovered more than 600 grams of the drug methorphan sent into the country by courier from Bahrain. Drugs smuggling into the Maldives through the postal system has increased in recent years. The health minister said that meth is widely available in Maldives. Pray for ongoing vigilance by the authorities towards drug smuggling. Pray that people with addictions will find help. Praise God that as we celebrate Christmas, we remember that Jesus came to bring freedom from addictions, and healing to troubled lives (The Bible, Matthew 11:28-29).
