"Things are not yet normal, we can not move around freely now because there are still a lot of silence killings in the city.
Things have been really terrible for us, we were hit so badly in this present round of crises from December 24th (bomb blasts) and January 8 massacred. . . Please, pray for me, it has been very devastating for us in the family, church and the community"--Christie, Jos, Nigeria
Oh, Father, we are wounded, and I nigh at a loss to go on while our partners grieve. We continue to pray for peace, continue to work towards better things, continue to believe; but to hear her sorrow from across the ocean, the prayer and work and faith seem cold sans this:
"I should be there."
