New earthquake hits Chile

Posted on March 11, 2010 by Global Mission Support

From the Rev. Raquel Rodriguez…

At 8:49 Central time, a new earthquake hit Chile very close to where it hit several days ago. A Tsunami alert has been issued and people have been asked to begin to evacuate for higher areas. Today the new president is being installed.

The Latin America/Caribbean team asks for your prayers for the people of Chile at this time. One earthquake of the magnitude of the first is enough to cause a lot of damage and death. A second, almost at the same magnitude as the one that hit Haiti, in such a short time, is devastating.

Lord in your mercy…
