Kevin began his letter by stating. "This week has been a rather damp one." That may be something of an understatement. Here is a little something from the AP.

"Residents try to pull a tree trunk from El Jute river to prevent it from damaging a bridge in La Libertad, south El Salvador , Sunday, May 30 ,2010. Torrential rains brought by the first tropical storm of the 2010 season, Tropical Storm Agatha, pounded Central America and southern Mexico, triggering deadly landslides.(AP Photo/Luis Romero)"

"In El Salvador, at least 140 landslides have been reported and 11,000 people were evacuated. The death toll was nine, President Mauricio Funes said.
Officials warned that the Acelhuate River, which cuts through San Salvador, was running at dangerously high levels and threatened to spill over into the capital's streets.Agatha made landfall near the Guatemala-Mexico border Saturday as a tropical storm with winds up to 45 mph (75 kph). It dissipated the following day over the mountains of western Guatemala."

We are grateful that the damage was limited in Kevin's area.

He reported that a lady who has investigated for some time had a change of heart and is considering baptism after having viewed a video of the restoration.
