A picture is worth...

I just found this fantastic website from Thomas Hurst.

He is a Pulitzer Prize winning photographer who is on staff at Mars Hill Church. Here's a little excerpt about him from the Mars Hill Blog:

Thomas Hurst is a Pulitzer Prize-finalist photojournalist who currently serves on staff atMars Hill Church and was part of a team that traveled to Haiti on behalf of Churches Helping Churches. Look for more posts in coming weeks from Thomas as he shares his thoughts on particular images he took and moments he and the team experienced in their 32 hours on the ground in earthquake-ravaged Port-Au-Prince.

His pictures are phenomenal. If you have a little time, take a look. I especially enjoyed the series called Journey of Hope that helps tell the story of 3 year Muhammed Hussein, a little Iraqi boy who was shot in the face by militants. He is currently being fostered by an American family while he goes through surgeries and recovery.

Just a warning: a few of the images are really graphic (especially of Haiti), but I think sometimes we all need a little shock to realize how much the world hurts and how much we need to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
