Mexico has been hit by 3 mayor earthquakes; in the state of Chiapas, in the state of Oaxaca and in Mexico City. Our prayers go to all the people that have lost their families, homes and business. Just in the city of Juchitan, Oaxaca and the surrounding towns, thousands of homes were severely damaged. Half of the 19th-century city hall, with its 30 arches, collapsed. The main hospital here was so devastated that staff members evacuated patients to an empty lot and worked by the light of their cellphones. By the time the earthquake’s tremors finally faded, at least 36 people in Juchitán were dead. Over all, the earthquake — the most powerful to hit the country in a century — killed at least 61 people in this region. The earthquake, which had a magnitude of 8.2 and struck shortly before midnight on Thursday, was felt by millions of people in Mexico.
HPIM has been working in this area for many years and has many friends as pastors and church leaders that have lost their homes and are in great need to be helped. Please take a minute of your time to pray for these precious people of God and if you are moved by God to help some of them, please let us know.
