The Purest Form of Genuine

yesterday the in country director of the covering shared the following letters written by some of our TRS children to the families in newtown, connecticut.

i am overwhelmed at the amount of grace, courage, and love that accompany their words.

there is a tightly bound thread that runs between those who have the deep understanding of loss and tragedy.  we all feel it, but those who have experienced such to it's fullest are instantly members of an inner circle.  their offers of comfort and prayers are the purest form of genuine, their sharing of the grief resulting in the heaviest of hearts.

i am so very proud of these children for offering this sense of community to a community they have yet to meet.


  1. OH my gosh. Such wisdom. I am floored. Such beautiful, unbelievable, pure, sincere, godly wisdom. I just learned SO much from those letters. Speechless.

  2. I have read a lot of blog post's over the past few days as people process and try to come to terms with the tragedy that occurred in your country / our world on Friday. These letters from children many many miles away say it simply, sincerely and with so much love & understanding it has brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for posting xx

    1. Thank you for reading, Faye. I am still so overwhelmed by broken people reaching out and offering what they have to support others. And the oldest of these kids is 14! I'm so proud of them.
