Saw this chart today. This year there have been 1,000 drug war deaths in Mexico in the first 34 days. Last year it took 51 days to reach the same number. There’s a drug war death every 48 minutes in Mexico as the war worsens.
My brother-in-law and his family minister in and around Ciudad Juarez which is the epicenter of deaths, including at least 16 youth killed at a party last weekend (with no known link to drugs (hard to believe)…and may have been “just a message”). Pray for Ken and Esme and their 3 little girls today if you’d be so kind.
So far our area is in a small region relatively untouched by the violence with only a few exceptions. Praise God for that!
