The country of Honduras was hit by Category 3 Hurricane Eta. The northern coast where most of Mt Vernon’s mission work has been done was inundated with up to 25” of rain in 24 hours. Our national media has been slow to give us details, but friends in country have confirmed to us enormous devastation. Many roads and bridges are washed away, power and internet is out over much of the area, with many homes and some whole villages washed into the ocean. There have been crops and livestock destroyed in a country already reeling in the wake of COVID-19. Families have been separated and the death rate is uncertain, but rising since the population of some villages is unknown. We have not been able to communicate with Punta Piedra where MVBC built a church building and sends monthly support to the church.
Our Honduras mission organization (AHMEN) is organizing a container for shoeboxes and relief supplies for December 5th. If you would like to directly affect the lives of many of our brothers and sisters in Honduras and know that 100% of your donation is used in country, please consider a generous donation for that purpose. You may give through the church, but be sure to write on the check..Honduras Relief Fund. Thank you in advance for your generous spirit.
