We Are Well After Hurricane Otto

 We are well and accounted for following Hurricane Otto!    

This area where the camp is did not receive damage.  Los Chiles was in the path did not suffer great wind damage.  So far no connection with Coquital or San Gerardo but we hope to hear soon.  

However Upala and that area was very hard hit.  The floods may not be over yet because what we call a Cabeza de Agua may still be coming down the mountains.  [A head of water]    

In addition to floods, many homes lost their tin roof which meant severe flooding.   

We are still learning all that has happened.  The Church in Ciudad Quesada is a collection point for people to leave food, primarily.  Last night there were more than 60 people in our El Recreo Church – with no electricity or food and no way to get out to get food.  They just have a small store next door to the church that would help so I authorized food purchases and will pay later.  The roads were closed and policed to keep people off the unsafe roads and bridges.   

There are landslides and aerial photos now showing the expanse of the floods.  

Thank you for your prayers for all.  If you can contribute funds to help these families, you may use our Costa Rica Methodist Mission Account in Bird City, Kansas.   

Thank you for your partnership in all with your prayers and gifts.

 Love in Christ, 

Mary Woods
