Hurricane Felix | This is not fun.

As if the country of Guatemala could not get more turbulant with upcoming elections...well now it appears that it will with expected arrival of Hurricane Felix. We have been closely watching as this hurricane heads right towards the heart of Guatemala. While the winds may die down and only be considered a catagory 1 storm forcasters predict that Guatemala City will be pounded with upwards of 25 inches of rain resulting in devestating mudslides. This is not good considering that shantty towns and thousands of homes cling precariously to hillsides. Please pray for the safetly of Max's birthfamily as ( it is our understanding )they live in shantty towns outside of Guatemala City. Pray also for Max and his foster family who live in the heart of Guatemala City. We will keep you posted!
