Bishop Agustín Altamirano Ramos helps deliver emergency supplies to Acapulco, Mexico, where Hurricane Otis struck in October, 2023. At the last minute, the storm intensified to a Category 5 hurricane, a phenomenon observers say results from warmer ocean temperatures and other elements of the climate crisis. Altamirano is bishop of the Mexico Annual Conference of the Methodist Church of Mexico. The emergency response of the Methodist Church of Mexico in Acapulco is supported by the United Methodist Committee on Relief. (Photo: the Rev. Paul Jeffrey, UM News)
