As of 9:10am this morning, official figures are reporting 225 deaths. Rescue efforts continue in many parts of these affected areas as over 50 buildings have collapsed, including an elementary school. Hundreds of other buildings and residences have incurred severe structural damage.
Mexico is still recovering from an earthquake off the southern central coast on September 7th where 98 people lost their lives.
We thank God that our team in Querétaro was not affected by the earthquake. After a couple long hours yesterday, everyone was able to get in contact with family members in the Mexico City area, all of whom are unharmed. Thank you to all who have reached out to check up on our team. We are thankful for your love and prayers. Our hearts break with those who are suffering and we ask you to join us in praying for the millions who have been affected.
We cling to God’s truth revealed to us in Psalm 75:3 “When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.”
