The Agua Viva team was jarred out of its REM sleep last night as an Earthquake hit Guatemala. The quake measured 5.1 on the Richter scale but was fortunately centered in a distant part of the country so we only felt the outer effects. Rumors are that Doris McAfee, the senior leader of the trip arose from bed faster than she has in forty years! Her roommate Suzie Williams said she was immediately positioned in the doorway. The event lasted for less than half a minute so by the time we were awakened, we were settling back down. On a serious note, please pray that there was no significant damage in the area and that our paths over the next few days won’t be obstructed.
Well, at least we don’t have tornadoes to worry about. 🙂
