From all that is broken, let there be beauty.
From what is torn, jagged, ripped, frayed,
let there be not just mendings - but meetings unimagined.
May the God in whom nothing is wasted
Gather up every scrap, every shred and shard,
And make of them new paths, doorways, worlds.

January 12, 2010 - we remember those that lost their lives and we remember friends that lost near and dear ones that day. We pray and hope boldly for continued healing and peace in their lives. Nou pap janm bliye.
Our first reaction and diary from the days following the quake can be found here.
No other time in our lives is as vividly ingrained in our memories as the day and the days following the earthquake. It feels like decades ago. It feels like yesterday. We saw the very best and the very worst of humanity in those days. We felt the power of Christ in us. We saw that power exhibited in others. We witnessed crushing despair and miraculous provision. Like so many others, this experience has changed us.
