Flooding in Chiquimula

The past day has been a very hard one for many families in Chiquimula because of flooding. Last night, there was a huge storm, and a river, that is usually just filled with rocks instead of water, overflowed and flooded many houses and stores and streets. Two of my best friends, one of which takes care of Levi and Mary Kathleen in the mornings, had their house flooded last night and they lost everything. Beds, washing machine, stove, clothes, ect., are under water and mud. Daniel is there now doing what he can to help with the clean up, but there are so many poor poor families that only have tin roofs for a house and they lost their house and all! A mother and a child were killed on this street as well, and I know in other places, more people have lost their lives. We ask that as you are reading this that you please pray for these families and that God will show His amazing mercy towards them.

  1. I find myself sometimes asking why God allows things like this flood to happen to people who have nothing to begin with. With no means of recouping their lose. But,I know God can use all things to His glory. I am in total esteem and admiration with you and the work you are doing. You are two servants definitly after Gods' own heart.
