Keep Guatemala in Your Prayers
Tropical Storm Agatha dumped rain on Guatemala and El Salvador and Pacaya erupted dumping ash. The combined effect has left many families homeless. Last year Pilgrim sent a group on a service learning trip to Guatemala. Common Hope, with whom we worked, was not damaged, but is running on a back up generator. Families from nearby villages who have lost everything are staying at the facility. San Pedro Huertas, where we built a house, has suffered significant damage. Mudslides are making roads to some of the villages impassible. We are awaiting word about the families members of our congregation sponsor and are trying to contact the Del Cid family to check on their safety.
