God Is Our Strength


Mariela, who works for World Vision in Ecuador, is thankful that she lost only her house after the magnitude-7.8 earthquake struck April 16, 2016 and claimed nearly 700 lives.

“I think the most important thing is life,” Mariela says, “and by the mercy and grace of God, my family and I are alive. That’s enough reason to have that strength to go ahead and help those who need us.”

Mariela supports World Vision’s Child-Friendly Spaces, which help bring joy, healing, and normalcy to children like her own, who were affected by the earthquake and its more than 1,000 aftershocks.

Pray for Ecuador: Lord, we pray for the people of Ecuador, who are still recovering and rebuilding from the devastating earthquake in April. Continue to be their strength. Comfort those who still mourn the loss of loved ones. Let Your presence be known through the work of World Vision’s staff.
