JOIN AHAVA RELIEF IN GUATEMALA
THE JOURNEY SENDING $2,500 AND YOU CAN GIVE AS WELL
The following is from Andrea Mendez, who The Journey partners with in Guatemala, and she gives urgent news about the situation after the tragic volcanic eruption June 3.
As many of you know, on Sunday, June 3, Fuego Volcano erupted causing an incredible destruction, and loss of life and homes. There are more than 65 reported dead, but search efforts have been temporarily suspended due to the volatility of the area. Thousands have lost their homes and many are injured. The Antigua and Pastores areas, where we live and work, are covered in a thick layer of ash, which is dangerous to breathe, thus causing the closing of all schools and programming, but there was no further serious damage. In the face of this catastrophe, Ahava Ministries has temporarily switched its focus towards disaster relief and providing the shelters with the needed resources to help sustain thousands of our neighbors who have been displaced.
We have been collecting donations to provide for these needs and will have been partnering with another ministry who has been taking the supplies to the shelters who have the greatest need.
All of the families that we work with in Pastores are safe and accounted for, however many have family and friends that have been effected by the eruptions that they have not yet heard from. Please keep these families in your prayers as they wait for news.
Thank you all for your prayers and concern in the last couple of days. We are taking care of ourselves and our families, but will continue to work hard to minister to our neighbors who are suffering just miles down the road.
If you wish to donate to the disaster relief you can do so through ahavaministriesgt.com/donate
Please specify that it is for disaster relief. We will use all of these donations to buy supplies that will be delivered to the impact centers and shelters.
Grace and Peace to you all,
