MESSAGE OF DOM STANISLAS OF MEPKIN
AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE IN ECUADOR :
The earthquake in Ecuador yesterday was about 40 miles south of our Sisters in Esmeraldas, but they suffered very, very little damage, thank God. Here is a note I shared with the Brothers and the Juniors who are with us for their Seminar:
BROTHERS AND SISTERS
I just spoke with Sister Mónica at Esmeraldas. She assured me that they were well. After we talked she wrote:
Dear Fr. Stan,
Thanks for your message and phone call. The sisters have been very brave. After the quake we got together and we were all amazed at the fact that nobody started yelling or tried to run out or anything. We all just stayed calm and prayed. Fr. Richard was coming over with Mireya, for dinner. They had to take the hit on the sidewalk, they could not walk in any direction and they could hardly stand up! After two big movements in different directions, everything started rocking as if we were inside a boat in rough waters.
We hope full power will be restored today. Fortunately I found an outlet to connect things, charge phones, etc… Maybe later on we will have no power at all.
The town of Pedernales, I think, must be totally destroyed. We have good friends there (a priest and a sister). Please, help us pray for them.
Thanks for everything. Peace,
Let us keep them all in prayer as well as all the people who were so badly affected.
Mothers Yosúa and Miren along with Sister Karinia are in Chile for their Regional Meeting, hoping to return on Wednesday if the airports are back open.
In Jesus’ love,
