We have heard the good news that all staff and children are OK after the recent earthquake. Buildings at the orphanage have been damaged and we are still awaiting confirmation of the extent of the damage. The epicenter was about 90 miles from the site with great destruction and loss of life over a huge area.
Please pray for people in Ecuador. Many, many people are suffering after this disaster.
If you wish to assist with the relief effort we would recommend ReachBeyond, a charity which has worked for many years in Ecuador and around the world and who are sending in an Emergency Medical Team to assist.
