A resident of Simojovel, a municipality in Chiapas, Mexico’s southernmost state, walks around the debris of the Iglesia Nacional Presbiteriana de México, Congregación Gólgota, a local church that was damaged in the 8.2-magnitude earthquake on Sept. 7. Reynaldo was in the church that night, before the earthquake hit. Hours later a landslide destroyed the church and more than six nearby homes.
