In the past week, many countries of our Mesoamerica Region have been greatly affected by Hurricane Eta. We ask for any and all prayer networks to be activated with regards to the devastation from Mexico through Panama.
Dozens of our Nazarene church buildings and the Bible Institute in Coban, Guatemala have becoming emergency shelter space for thousands of people who have lost their homes. Some Nazarene pastors have lost their homes, and many families are still missing.
In all the destruction, Nazarene Compassionate Ministries has mobilized effectively as they always do. Just today we received the following from the hard-working Honduras team:
“We thank God and the churches of the two districts of Honduras for joining to support those who were affected by the Eta storm in the following churches: Residencial Centro América, Cerro Grande, Las Colinas, Canaán, Villanueva, Getsemaní, El Valle de Choluteca and the mission of Guasistagua de Comayagua. Thanks to everyone for being part of this help for our affected brothers. We will continue collecting items; we currently need non-perishable food such as rice, beans, sugar, pasta, flour, maseca, salt, milk, as well as cleaning materials such as chlorine, detergent, brooms, mops, tables, and garbage bags. Tools such as rakes and shovels will be especially useful as we clean the affected areas”.
Stories like this are being shared from all of Central America. Please pray for these countries, the leadership, and all the communities and people affected.
