Thank you, friends, for your prayers and love, both here and on Facebook.
Petra made it home safe and sound, unlike the 14 souls who perished yesterday.
But she no longer inhabits a 'safe' world.
(She didn't anyway. But now I think she knows it).
I am on the phone with denominational folks who are ready and willing to come to our community to help.
I am grateful for the privilege of serving here and now.
And burdened by it too.
Longer version to follow.
