Earthquake in Guatemala

We heard rumors yesterday that a small earthquake shook part of Guatemala on Monday night, so I just searched Google News to confirm the rumor. It is true.

The quake ranked somewhere between 4.6 and 5.3 on the Richter scale, according to two different measurements, and was centered about 50 miles from Guatemala City. It hit at about 8:40 p.m. None of else felt it -- we would have been eating, or just finishing, dinner with the Venturas at the time -- and it apparently did not do much damage.

We thank God for keeping us safe and ask for his continued care for us while we are here, on our return home and throughout our lives.

If you want more details on the quake, you can go to this brief AP article.
