Updates from Guatemala: Our Friends are Safe

Dear Friends in Christ,

By now I am sure you have all heard of the terrible volcanic eruption of Volcán de Fuego near Guatemala City.  I want to assure you that I have heard from Ila Abernathy and from Fr. John and Terri Smith, and that they are all safe and sound.

Ila reports that Guatemala City has received “a dusting of volcanic ash, so the airport, affecting the arrivals of team people.”

Terri Smith says that in Antigua, “We are ok. Just a lot of soot and ash and it rained pebbles but we are ok. The village on the other side of the mountain was hit bad. Antigua is a mess with the ash and soot. The village on the other side of Fuego for hit the worst with a lava flow that was shown on the news.”

Please pray for the repose of the souls of the 25 killed by this eruption, for healing of those injured, and for safety for the whole country of Guatemala.

O merciful Father, you have taught us in your holy Word that you do not willingly afflict or grieve the children of mortals: Look with pity upon the sorrows of the people of Guatemala for whom our prayers are offered. Remember them, O Lord, in mercy, nourish their souls with patience, comfort them with a sense of your goodness, lift up your countenance upon them, and give them peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

David Benedict Hedges, n/BSG
