Quick prayer request

Here's a prayer request concerning our work among the Katíos.
There was a incident in the neighborhood that occurred over the past few days. The neighborhood has both indigenous peoples living there and non-indigenous. Some of the details are uncertain at this point, but here is what I've been told. On Sunday, a 3 year old indigenous girl was raped by a non-indigenous man. The following day, about 20 indigenous beat the man to death. Now, there are tensions between the indigenous and non-indigenous in the neighborhood. The non-indigenous are wanting the indigenous to leave. It's a terrible situation, but they really need pray right now. They really need the gospel. As for now,  we will not have the event for the kids anymore. I doubt it will resume anytime soon.
