Solidarity from the south

In his El Salvador blog, Chuck Stewart reports that the Anglican churches in El Salvador will dedicate all of the Sunday offerings in September to relief efforts for Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in the US:

Bishop Martin Barahona of El Salvador and Archbishop of the Anglican Church of the Region of Central America (IARCA), said, "We wish to let the Episcopal Church know of our sadness, accompaniment, and our solidarity. We share your pain. We pray that God will give people the strength to surmount the current difficulties. We are particularly saddened by what happened in New Orleans." He added that Salvadorans are ready to come to the United States to help with relief efforts in Spanish-speaking communities.

Dios les bendiga a la gente de El Salvador.
