Grace Children's Hospital inpatient ward had to be moved outside after the January 12, 2010 earthquake.

Late in the afternoon of Tuesday, January 12, 2010, having just finished eating their usual dinner of beans and rice, the young patients at Grace Children's Hospital returned to the main area of the inpatient ward. There, the infants rested in their cribs, their bellies full of milk, while the older children gathered in front of the television set. It was 4:53 p.m., and winter darkness had begun to fall on the city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

A Student at the Asian Rural Institute enjoys the work that will help shape him into an effective leader.

The General Board of Global Ministries and the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) are working with church organizations that continue a mission story that opened in 1873, the year the first Methodist missionary arrived in Japan.
