lend a hand

Unless you've been sleeping under a rock, the disaster in SE Asia resulting from the tsunami is rapidly getting worst. Some numbers to contemplate:

At least 26,000 people are dead (that's more than 8 times the number of people who died in 9/11). Another estimated one million people have been displaced. And about 250,000 people that are probably also homeless. Yes, I like making numbers in bold type.

What's worst though, is that the majority of the countries affected have nowhere near the resources they need to cope. Therefore, I urge anybody who reads this to check the following sites on how to help:

.:World Vision International
.:International Red Cross

Donate money, water, medical supplies, food, clothing, and pray... it's all needed badly.

"What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, �Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,� but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

James 2:14-17


Oh yeah... happy birthday me.


word. the grim totals are definitely rising quick...as of 12/28 it's 60000 perished, a total that's projected to more than double in the course of weeks. very heart-wrenching plight indeed.
