April 22nd, 2016 IRA
As many of you may have heard, on April 16th, 2016, at 6:50 pm a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit my country of residence, Ecuador.
I’m writing this to let you know that I am fine, so does my family and friends. However the situation is terrible for those who were near the epicenter. Complete towns and cities have been devastated, and the human loss is frightening. I’m doing my best to help but to recover from an event of this magnitude is going to take years for my country.
I would have liked to have better news for the first update of the year, and actually I was having very good progress in a game update to be released in a week or two. However the situation is very chaotic at the moment so I’d rather use my time and energy to help in everything I can around here.
To all my visitors, thank you for your letters of encouragement. I feel blessed to be able to be here and to be able to work hard for those in need.
If you would like to help, probably one of the easiest and quickest ways to do it is to spread the word about this event and provide awareness around the world. Ecuador is a very little country so probably this may have gone unnoticed by those who can help. We are going to need the help of the international community at large if we expect to recover anytime soon so any kind of aid will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your support. Be well and pray for us.
