One of the most underappreciated groups in the United Methodist Church is United Methodist News Service.

It has been my joy to occasionally work with that staff. They turn out copy on a daily basis that the rest of of take weeks to perfect.

Three of the UMNS staff are now in Haiti with UMCOR.  Their daily postings give us glimpses of the pain and suffering of the Haitians. They also teach us something about faith following the loss of family members, friends, homes, businesses and churches.
