"Of course, we hope that all the native missionaries we support will get to high ground and be out of harm's way, but just in case we are prepared to act," said Rosa Contreras Hart, who is keeping a watch and in contact with Latin American and Central American leaders.

Christian Aid Mission, based in Charlottesville, supports 26 native ministries in the countries which Hart serves. Born in Peru, her mother tongue is Spanish and she communicates freely with indigenous ministries throughout Latin America.

Few other countries in the Pacific basin are likely to be affected according to Steve Van Valkenburg, Director for Southeast Asia, although he is keeping a close eye on the Philippines and the Pacific islands.
