Haiti Pastor Rebuilds With 'Church in a Bathroom'





QUOTE: "Think of our new village here as the home of Jesus Christ, not the scene of a disaster. Life is not a disaster. Life is joy! You don’t have food? Nourish yourself with the Lord. You don’t have water? Drink in the spirit. … Here we start every day with what I call my 'cup of hot coffee service.' We don’t have the real beverage, of course. This is a prayer to wake us up and fortify us as we look ahead and think, 'What, oh what, next?' … A church in a bathroom, that’s what we are. For the moment." —Joseph Lejeune, one of the hundreds of pastors in Haiti whose church was completely destroyed by the earthquake, encouraging the newly homeless survivors gathered around him in a makeshift tent city in Port-au-Prince [nytimes.com, 1/18/10]
