"With the aftermath of the Pacaya eruptions, and tropical storm Agatha, missionaries have found many opportunitites to help with the clean-up as well as bag supplies of basic necessities which were sent by the church to help victims who lost their homes or crops. The Church sent clothing emergency food, water and tools . None of the missionaries were affected by these events." Sister Torres (wife of mission president)
It's fun to see all the smiles on the faces of all the cute missionaries doing service. I love to see that Jordan has two of his favorite CCM buddies, Elder Winkel and Elder Bronson, still by his side.
There was a great article in the Church News with more information, photos, and video of the relief efforts to help with the destruction of the volcano and tropical storm. It's so great to see the missionaries in action and all of the good that the church is doing down there.

GUATEMALA CITY, GUATEMALA
Members left decimated by the recent flooding and mudslides in Guatemala and neighboring countries are finding relief thanks largely to the hard work and capacity of local priesthood and Relief Society leaders.
