Devastating Earthquake in Papua New Guinea

It happened in February, but the worst hit communities are some of the world’s remotest- they have little by way of outside connections, are inaccessible by road, and the mountain trails connecting these villages to the outside world are lost in subsequent mudslides. Entire villages may have been destroyed. The landscape has been rearranged. They havent just lost their families, their homes, many may have lost their entire community. The destruction and the toll of the disruption of everything they’ve known in their lives is unfathomable.

We only heard of it ourselves because of local missionaries with ties in the region.

    What a shock for these people–it says that a lot of them may have to leave places where their families have been for generations and move to where it’s more built up and less remote.
