Pray for the Salvadoran Victims of Hurricane Ida

I know it's hard to believe, but sometimes horribly destructive and violent hurricanes occur that don't threaten the U.S.  (Have you ever noticed the almost audible, collective sigh of relief when the news reports that a powerful hurricane headed to American shores has changed course and now is about to blast Cuba or Jamaica or Mexico instead, and then all word of that storm drops from the headlines?  That should make us shiver.)

On Sunday, heavy flooding along the Pacific coast in El Salvador caused by Hurricane Ida brought mudslides that killed 120 people and destroyed many buildings.  That includes the building of the First Baptist Church of San Vicente; after its destruction eight people, including seven children, were missing.  (Read more here.)

Please pray for the victims of this catastrophe, that both spiritually and physically they would be rescued by the true Salvador (Savior), and consider if he is summoning you to be employed by him somehow in that process.
