Last week, President Clayton and I traveled
to Tecoman, San Blas, Manzanillo and Vallarta
to see the damage that was done to these areas
in our mission. Mexico was spared indeed in so
many respects, but still the violent storm winds
and rain took it's toll on these areas.
Here are some of the pictures we took as we
drove throughout these areas.
We are grateful beyond measure for the Lord's
watchful care and protection over us.
Our love and prayers are with those, whose
homes and businesses were damaged, and
who have had much to do to recover and
the beach at Tecoman
the billboard in shreds
the banana tree crop, just ruined
below, the whole roof collapsed, and can you see that
huge sign laying in front?
those sweet school children walking right by
the rubble, it seems, taking no thought
the tree collapsed over the electrical wires
this is a very sad picture to me
our camera accidentally went to
black and white for a few pictures
President kept saying it looks like a
weed wacker has gone through this area
the violent wind just blew almost every
leaf off every tree and bush
these industrious folks just got out there and
cleaned and swept and raked and repaired
can you see the man
cleaning his car?
I love this sweet baby girl, pig tails and sunglasses...
again, in the midst of this rubble
swept up and ready for pick up
I love this picture best of all!
Can you see these two little girls sitting eating
treats in their doorway, and the dog laying down
in the cool of the shade, amidst the raked and piled
up rubble. I love these people.
