While national and international aid came quickly and
sufficiently, the grief of lost loved ones, homes and
livelihood because of the Guatemalan Volcano de Fuego was very evident. Miguel and Linda Toledo, Central America Area Directors, and a team of locals joined with Christians in Action coordinators, Ron and Virginia McCabe of LARMS (Latin America Relief &
Medical Services) ministered in a neighborhood, a shelter of 360 people, and at the foot of Fuego–just one mile away from the destruction in a community traumatized by being “trapped” between a lava flow and a river.
There are plans to return there in October or November to do follow-up medical attention as well as to those who received Christ through personal witness.
