A Bright Spot in the Disaster in Indonesia

Baby found in trees days after Indonesia tsunami

MENTAWAI ISLANDS, Indonesia — An official says an 18-month-old baby has been found alive in a clump of trees days after the devastating tsunami that killed at least 343 people.

Relief coordinator Hermansyah says the little boy is recovering in a health center. He says a 10-year-old child discovered the baby in a clump of trees on Pagai Selatan island on Wednesday. Both his parents are dead.

The discovery is one of the few bright spots in the tsunami that flattened villages and displaced tens of thousands of people when it hit Monday.

Let us continue to pray for the recovery and the survivors. I pray that they would see the Gospel in this largely Muslim nation.
