      Thank you Maurina! We are away from the earthquake area, but it’s so painful to hear about those victims. The worst is a very cold Winter is very close and Van is one of the coldest cities of Turkey. Transportation becomes a real problem and people stuck where they live when it snows there.

      Thanks so much Mely, unfortunately the only thing we can do for the victims and their families is to pray. I can’t keep worrying about kids there. It’s getting colder here and tents will not be safe for them soon.

    Very sad! I have always wanted to make the trip over there at some point, but haven’t been able to for various reasons. My grandparents were originally from Van.
