Okay

We just wanted to let everyone know that we're okay. We're definitely in shock and can't begin to describe what the last day and 1/2 have been like here. We're also shocked right now to be seeing the headlines about the extensive international aid response in Port-Au-Prince because as of yet, we have not seen a single organized response on the ground (unless you count Ben with a pick).

Please especially pray for a few friends and acquaintances that we haven't received word of yet and for our coworkers Joel and Rachel, who are currently at the American embassy waiting to be evacuated on a flight to Santo Domingo tomorrow: http://joelandrachelhoffman.wordpress.com/2010/01/13/were-okay/
