No Words

Spent the day in some areas of the city worst damaged by the earthquake. Rubble is everywhere and just a few signs of recovery. We did observe a few buildings under construction. There are more tents than anything. One site for a potential container home designed by our Granada family is surrounded by immense mounds of debris. Frankly, it is hard to know where to begin.

We have identified and made arrangements for one building site that is ideal. Two other pieces of property are less than ideal. We may be able to use one of them. A church totally destroyed has left only a footprint for us to see. Two Christian schools are meeting in temporary facilities. The children surprise us with beaming smiles, a joy to us in the sadness we feel as we see their condition. Here we can see God clearly at work in the hearts of the people. Listening to people’s praises tells us much about them. The pastors of the churches we have visited are so encouraged by our visit. We share powerful prayers.

Pray that as we come home our mission will be clear and that we will know how to share it.
