En Ayiti

There are very few words to describe the devastation, but I'm already encouraged by the lives that have been saved and how those who were spared are volunteering to help their fellow man.

The first pic is a view of the propellers as we were landing in Port-au-Prince.

The second pic is a shot of the missions airport exit, which is currently being controlled by the Marines and the United Nations peace keeping forces.

The 3rd, 4th, & 5th pic show the way various houses feel, like pancakes, to the ground during the 35 seconds of pure terror the Haitian people experienced that fateful day.

The last pic is of the first hospital we visited--Hope Hospital. Many patients are outside, some out of fear of the aftershocks (which I'm told have not occurred for 24 hours), but most out of lack of space inside.
