What it's all about

While the world rallies to aid the tsunami victims, there are people in need of aid on our own soil as well.

Greg Ray survived the California mudslide but his friends didn’t. Another man, Jimmie Wallett, lost his wife and three of his daughters. Wallett dug for hours in the rain around where he thought his family might be. He helped rescue two people before the bodies of his family members were found Wednesday. According to the AP news report, “A distraught Wallet returned to La Conchita late Wednesday even after his family was recovered, saying he wanted to continue helping with the search. He was turned away by officers who said they feared for his safety.”

Dear Lord, comfort this man.

Ray was quoted as saying that he was devastated by the loss, yet cheered by the way La Conchita and rescue workers pulled together in crisis. "They made a really good situation - how they helped each other," he said. "Everyone involved was just like angels."

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.” Matthew 25:34-36
