What a day! We have been so blessed serving God's people in the tent town outside of Catacaos. This tent town has 32, very small, tent homes. Families have been moved to this location, with the help of their government, at the end of March.
We were told that the flooding occurred because of a sudden and abnormal warming of Pacific waters of Peru. This warming had unleashed the deadliest downpours in decades, with landslides and the raging Piura River destroying everything in its way including people, cars, homes, and crops. Here's what we saw when we first arrived. Click on a picture and you will be put into the scroll mode and see each picture in a large, screen-size format.

Even though these people live in a tent, the people keep themselves very clean. They are very proud, handsome/beautiful people. Look at how happy and clean these children look.

Thank you, donors for your generosity. You have helped a lot of people stay healthy by giving them a gift of clean water. Each donor will receive a picture of the recipient of a water purifier. The people in this community were told that their picture will be given to their donor and that their donor will pray for them.
