photos - ravine damage - part 2

At the base of the ravine there is a church.

When the rains come the ravine water washes up to the doors of the church.

The church lost the wall along one side. The wall in the distance is a retaining wall for the property above. The roof leaks and the pastor in this photo spent his morning cleaning the water and mud from his church.

The church has made some attempts toward repairs but is requesting assistance to make the building more stable. Pray for the people in this congregation. Sometimes if rains begin during the church service people will have to stay inside the church waiting for the rushing waters through the ravine to stop before heading for their homes.

This woman is cooking in a damaged area of her home.
