Local woman found alive in Haiti

A woman who graduated from our local highschool was found alive in Haiti in the bottom of a collapsed building last week. She was doing missionary work teaching English. After graduating from college, she committed to a two year engagement with her missionary group.  Her family is well known in Arlington, and my oldest son is friends with her brother. The news was heartening and made the front page of our newspaper. But sadly, the news was released on the same day as the funeral of another Western Washington woman of the exact same age and similar situation. We will continue to pray for the families of other people with friends and loved ones in the earthquake zone. And for this young womans recovery from injuries she suffered in the earthquake.
On a personal note, I want to thank God for the miracles he continues to provide in our lives. Even in such horrible times as these, we see there is hope in him!
