Update #2: Saturday morning; Earthquake zone, Pakistan

I am writing this from "snake road" in Northern Pakistan, in the region most affected by the massive October 2005 earthquake. Ali (pseudonym) is driving - very skillfully, I might add. These are dangerous roads; we just passed an all-too-common accident scene (big truck, small car). I don't think anyone died this time.

This is a vibrant land. There is life everywhere. So often we think of the poverty, but there is a deeper beauty here in the kite-flying children, ornately decorated tractors, and friendship-building chai drinking.

Just arrived in Kashmir - past two checkposts. Wonderful to be among a handful of believers here. They said, "See those big white sections of the mountains? Thos parts fell away in the earthquake. Many, many people died."

About to preach for the second time. Keep praying. - Nigel

Followup: Sermon went well, and I have since spoken again. Now on the way to yet another meeting. They are putting me to work!

P.S. Saw the boarding school (Murree Christian School) I went to for grades 1-4 for the first time in 16 years yesterday! Surreal.

P.P.S. Happy Easter!
