Mercy

The news out of Haiti has, as we all know by now, been at turns tragic, uplifting, devastating and inspirational. While I can’t say I’ve read all the news coming out of the rescue and recovery efforts I have been following the accounts of Rev. Matt Harrison, the Executive Director of LCMS World Relief and Human Care, who has been on the ground the last several days helping with the Missouri Synod’s presence there. The stories from him and his staff have been quite emotional, especially in how they have not only be working to deliver much-needed food and medical help but also – and most importantly – the comfort that comes from the cross of Christ. Amazing stuff.
