Update: Earthquake in Chile

Shelly Meyer

The earthquake that occurred on February 27, 2010 in Chile damaged over a half million homes and took hundreds of lives. Joyce Meyer Ministries sent funds immediately after the earthquake to Convoy of Hope to provide relief to the people in the area and also to La Casa del Senor to help with the restoration process.

La Casa del Senor is a church in Chile, Mauricio Berguno is the pastor. Members of the church got right in the middle of the devastation and helped in many ways. They took food, water, tents and supplies to people in need. The church’s retreat center was damaged during the quake, but soon after it was repaired it was used as a distribution center to provide the much needed aid. The church has been holding services daily since the earthquake because the people have been so open to hear the Gospel message.

Please continue to pray for the people of Chile as they rebuild their lives and that God will use this tragedy to bring many into the Kingdom. Visit our website for more information about Hand of Hope.
