Big Picture

During the earthquake relief, the internet is s source for a lot of information for us here on the ground. Particularly helpful is the Corbett list serve, which sends me everything from forwarded headline news stories to advice on where to find help for people, to personal requests from aid workers and friendly debates over relief strategies. I have pasted some of my favorite links below. I find that these provide a helpful picture of Haiti right now. The first article is AMAZINGLY written and captures a real, heartfelt glimpse of both Haiti and the tragedy. The second two give more info than some of the more mainstream articles about the spiritual vibe on the streets here. I will write more on this in my next post.

  1. Post other links in the comments, please!

  2. The Common Room has excerpted from and linked to you; it's where I first ran across you, then a friend on facebook posted too. Here lately, here, a video, and here. They are mostly round-ups, with other links and info too.

  3. I learned about what y'all are doing there through Jocelyn. I've been reposting hers and your blog posts on mine, hoping to generate more exposure. Makes me wonder how many people have read your stories and have passed them on…

    By the way, I was wondering today: have you ever thought of selling the beads/necklaces through etsy.com?

  4. I hope you guys know how much we appreciate what you do!!! And what God does through you especially!!!
