A caravan of approximately 7,200 Central American migrants is making its way toward the US border. They’re escaping Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador, one of the most dangerous regions in the world. They are fleeing gang violence, political corruption, and crushing poverty.
Now a second caravan has formed in a Guatemalan city near the border with Honduras. They intend to follow in the footsteps of the larger group. As many as 2,500 Hondurans have gathered to form this second migratory wave.

If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
