In Guatemala City, just a few short miles from where Erin and Mike are schedule to meet next week with local pastors, there was a horrible mudslide. Very early Friday morning over 125 super-poor shanty homes were buried while families slept. As of the writing of this blog 131 people are confirmed dead and upwards of 600 are still missing with no additional survivors expected to be found.
A massive rain storm came through the region Thursday night/Friday morning. When we awoke Friday we had six inches of standing water in our back yard in La Ceiba, Honduras. That same storm is what brought the mountain side down on the community of Santa Catarina Pinula in the southeast of Guatemala City.
Please pray for the survivors who are morning for their loved ones as they continue to dig for missing friends and family.
