Tremor Today

We wanted to share a prayer request with you for the people of Chile, and especially in our region where the earthquake was so strong. Right now tremors (small earthquakes) are part of living down here, there are many theories about why the region is so active, but in reality no one can really prove why the earth in this area is so volatile right now. Below is a short video of a tremor that occurred today during the church service, the tremor was around 5.5 on the Richter scale, and from the information I have found on it was pretty shallow. It was one of the strongest tremors I have felt since I have been here.

The speaker on this day was the youth pastor (Fernando), and he did a really great job of keeping everyone calm, as many of the people in the church were standing and about to  move to safer parts in the room.

We would ask you to pray for the people of Chile about the fears that many of them have about more earthquakes and tsunamis.Especially as the one year anniversary of the earthquake comes nearer (27th of February).

  1. It was good to see Pastor Fernando preaching the Word and being calm in the Spirit during the tremor. We are praying for Kingdom peace and joy thoughout Tome & Chile in the midst of the earth groaning & shaking. (dvr)
