Disaster Relief

Earthquakes and tsunamis. Hurricanes and tornadoes. War and famine. Disasters like these consistently raise the question: Where is a good God in all of this? Even as Christians wrestle with this question, they continue to send out workers and supplies to bring what relief they can. But logistical challenges, financial problems, and (particularly in recent years) the continual arrival of one disaster after another can all add up to create “compassion fatigue” for both relief workers and the people who support them.
