[Thursday, January 14]
As our bus left the hotel this morning on our way to visit Palestinian communities within Israel all our thoughts were with the people of Haiti. Reverend Gerhard Wilch led us in prayer as we proceeded towards the first check stop in the separation wall.
We saw and learned a lot in our travels today, but that report can come later. At this time we are encouraged by the immediate response of all in the aid sector. Those of us on the Global Encounter who are members of the CLWR staff are concerned for our colleagues and the extra burden they must bear assisting donors in directing aid to those who are so much in need.
The same technology which brought the bad news so quickly has allowed CLWR Executive Director Robert Granke to remain in touch with the situation and direct CLWR’s efforts from the Holy Land.
More on today’s activities at a better time.
