Earthquake Damage Report, part 4

The family in this house, which I believe is a grandmother, her two daughters, and their children, are still living in the house, in the part where the roof is still up, because they have no where else to go. This is one of the few houses where the roof structure actually fell down. It's amazing no one was hurt or killed!

This family, with four children, has to completely rebuild their house. The left side (in the picture) fell completely, and the right side, although still standing, is too dangerous to live in.

The family has removed the rubble from the left side of the house, and they are in the process of erecting a tent over what is left of the walls (the partial walls will keep out animals). Then, they will live in the tent while they tear down and reconstruct the other part of the house. Once they can move into that part, they will be able to rebuild the part they camped out in.

This house used to have a wall here. The family is still living in the other part of this damaged house.

We are praying for Honduras during this time. We had this on the news in Costa Rica. Recently we had an earthquake too that was a 6.5 so I know how it is to have families without homes.

Praying that God will supply the money needed for the basic needs of these families that lost everything.
