China Earthquake

A couple years ago, a Chinese woman lived with a family from our church and volunteered at our local school through an exchange program. She lives in the Sichuan province where the earthquake struck. Although they are some distance from the epicenter, her husband has been hiking in on foot to a very remote region to bring medicine, food, tents and other supplies to survivors. Here are two photos he took. The shelter in the picture was made by local people with whatever they could find after the earthquake.

Although I don't have a way to easily connect you to this particular village, Mennonite Central Committee is collecting donations to assist with earthquake relief.
