#PrayForSouthKorea

It is now the fifth day since the Korean ferry “Sewol” sank in the waters off Jindo in South Korea. That accident on April 16th will forever change the lives of the families of the victims. Hundreds of families are still waiting news on the whereabouts of their loved ones. About 250 still remain trapped underwater. While the families wait in agony, they still cling to that bit of hope that their loved ones could be alive in the ship’s air pockets ~ like what happened to the Nigerian cook who survived underwater for 3 days.

Waiting at the port...
