Pray for Puno, Peru

There is an emergency in Puno, Peru. Puno is located high in the Andes Mountains. It is most famous for Lake Titicaca, the highest navegable lake in the world.

That department (state) has suffered extreme cold for many days now. 153 CHILDREN HAVE DIED TO DATE. Relief organizations of all types are working overtime to get blankets and coats to the 1.3 million habitants of that department.

Pray for Puno, especially for the children and the elderly.

I can relate to this one. One of the coldest nights we ever spent as a family were in Puno. We couldn't find any available lodging to spend the night, and had to take a cheap room in a place (won't call it a hotel) where we spent a miserable night!
