I read with interest a post today by McNair Wilson today on his blog Tea with McNair. In a great post entitled Volcano vs. Earthquake he puts a little perspective on the volcano eruption in Iceland that is interfering with air travel across Europe.
While the volcano has cost airlines money and stranded many travelers it has not claimed any lives. In contrast the earthquake in Haiti killed at least 150,000 and left an entire city virtually homeless. It has been three months and the country is still reeling from this devasting occurrence.
Life in Europe will return to normal. Travel will soon again be safe and things will go on. But life returning to normal is still a long way off for Haiti. They continue to need our help and our prayers.
McNair worked at Compassion International for a year and as with everything he does he embraced the company's mission with gusto. So, his support and recommendation for the work Compassion does is enough for me. Please visit his blog and read Volcano vs. Earthquake to find out more about the work Compassion International does in Haiti.
