In June we hosted five (of 16) short-term mission teams. And, so far, four of those teams have had difficulty with the heat here in La Ceiba. With our short-term missionaries we have already experienced more heat related problems this year, in just one month, than we have any other complete summer.
Already we have had several people vomiting from the heat, Erin has started a couple IVs and we took one short-term missionary to the emergency room…all experienced heat and hydration related health problems. We continually stress and over stress hydration and rest to our short-term teams, and June was not an overly hot or humid month.
Please pray the remaining 11 short-term mission teams that will work with us in July and August are free of any health problems. Pray for proper hydration and plenty of rest breaks during work.
