Hurricane and earthquake in Costa Rica

I spoke on the telephone with Chev. Maarten Kampen, Commander in the Commandery in Costa Rica following the hurricane and earthquake that hit there.  Fortunately, although there was damage, and indeed deaths, due to the freak conditions, the more severe effects were in the north of the country and so our confréres and consoeurs were not in among the worst affected, thanks be to God. The emergency services rallied very well. Our prayers remain with the people in Costa Rica and beyond who have been affected by these events.
