News of the families and communities being driven from their homes continues to come from the border, both through conventional news sources, and those working there. In the first link below, a man named Rainbow tells some of his community’s story. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8095137.stm
(We met Rainbow briefly several years ago, when, after we delivered rice donated from folks here in Seattle. We accidentally disrupted his class-our friend Noah (at about 6′ 2″+) stood out in the crowd. The kids were fascinated with this friendly big guy in the bright yellow shirt (and distracted from their lessons), so Rainbow told Noah to come teach them something).
A rainbow, in the Bible, was a sign God would not forget His promises, (and that the rain had stopped). Here, according to friends yesterday, they hope it keeps raining–the shelling stops when it rains…..
God, please remember Rainbow, and all the others under attack at the moment. They are not a news story-they are real people having families, having schools, doing life in a real hard place.
