Disaster Relief

From byFaith Online Magazine e-mail:

Mission to the World is spearheading relief efforts for victims of the recent Tsunami in Asia. MTW is in the process raising funds to help those in need. It is also planning to send response teams through its Disaster Response Ministry (DRM). The DRM is a mercy ministry of the Medical Missions Department of MTW, created with the specific purpose of deploying trained and equipped teams to areas of disaster and need in different parts of the world. To read the MTW appeal letter, to donate funds and/or to volunteer to be a part of a response team go to MTW.org

Honestly, I'm not going to be blogging about the tsunami. It's just too much for me right now. It's too big, too horrible, too overwhelming. I'm limiting what I read about it, what I pictures I view, and how much I think about it.

And while I know many, many people are suffering, I am very thankful that the people we personally know who live and minister in that part of the world are safe.

Update: More about the MTW Minutemen at Wittenberg Gate.

I think I'm there with you. This whole thing has been so big, I've not been sure where to start in my thinking about it. The con to that, though, is that I've not been praying either. I need to do that...

I, too, have been limiting my exposure regarding the events. I pray. But I have a difficult time refraining from asking why this happened.
