In the Word — My Soul Takes Refuge in You
David tells us about God in Psalm 57:1, “Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.” Those words were spoken by David as he hid in a cave, fearing for his life. But they can also be spoken by us, today.
An Update on the Earthquake in Ecuador
Less than a month ago, the Pacific coast of Ecuador was devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Compassion Ecuador continues to work with 240 local churches to assess the needs of 13,000 children who live within a 30-mile radius of the epicenter.
Four of our church project centers have been badly damaged and are temporarily closed. Our field staff is estimating that many beneficiaries have lost their homes or their homes have suffered significant damage and that other project centers are also severely damaged.
Will you pray for the thousands of children affected and consider giving to help with the rebuilding and recovery efforts in Ecuador?
