Most of the people in Mocoa, Colombia, were fast asleep when a mudslide swept through on April 1. Those who woke up had to run for their lives. Those who didn’t wake up perished.
More than 300 bodies were recovered, but another 300 were never found. “Images of the disaster continue to haunt us,” wrote a CAM contact in Colombia.
Survivors, many who lost family members, face a bleak future. We know God uses disasters and trauma to draw people to Himself, and we plan to use this opportunity to provide Bibles and Christian literature to encourage survivors.
