Some good words from some friends living amongst the urban poor:
With the heat and the humidity and the crowds and the traffic and the mosquitoes and all the suffering that we see in our friends' lives, this is not the easiest place to be. But when I read the news and see what is happening in Egypt and Pakistan and Burma and Bangladesh and Central America and South Africa and throughout much of the rest of the world, I know that there are many places where it is not easy to be. We hear God telling us that this is where He wants us to be right now, loving people who He loves. We are still listening for Him to guide us through the next steps.
