Haiti: Tent Cities

~/zaboka reports on conditions in the Haitian tent cities, which sprung up as a result of the homelessness caused by the devastating January 12 earthquake: “I was amazed by how clean it was and how they had separated the camp in different sectors and assigned people in charge to make sure that it’s always clean. I have never seen Haiti as peaceful and the people as hopeful.”

    Many people rise to the occasion and treat each other with respect in the midst of disaster. Why? Compassion is a reflection of God and His tender heart toward us. He has made us in His image and placed His best desires in the deepest part of OURselves. It’s one of the things what makes us truly human and not mere animals. When we allow His Spirit to work in us, what amazing things we see in and around us!
