We passed these people waiting in line at a water distribution point in Aurora. There are spots like these all over town.

We decided to collect rain water instead...

Thankfully, we were only without water for two days. There are many, though, that are still without.

Mudslides and Flooding

Early Thursday morning there was a mudslide in San Antonio (the backside of the mountain that holds the cross). You can read a news story here. While we are deeply saddened by the devastation and lives lost, we cannot help but be thankful that we are safe. Our family and the Gills live within a couple miles of the mudslide (10 minute walk from the Gill's home).

Another area devastated by the torrential rain is Los Anonos, Escazu. This area was already going to be a target area for ministry in the upcoming year out of the new team house. There are pictures below that Spencer took Thursday while scoping out the damage and ways in which we can help.

Thank you to all who are praying. It is humbling to see the people that are praying and supporting God's ministry here.
