Glad to see you are safe, Thomas. It's a small thing, but would you like us to send you a charger for your iPod mini? Let me know if I can and where to send it and it'll be in the mail immediately.

Hi Thomaso, I just found out you are alive and kicking! Thank god(ess). I'l be happy to send you a replacement for something,
a new computer not being one of them.

Loved reading your mesage which Gabor posted in the Item in which I asked if anyone had heard from you. Let me know what you want me to send. Be well, you ole' wandere.

Blanka.

If I can find a G4 on ebay for a hundred or two, would that be something you'd want sent to you? Also, is it safe to send something like that over to Sri Lanka? I may be able to get a gently used one for around that price is why I'm asking. Also, what model G4 did you have and is any model G4 sufficient?

Safe--as in survived all the latest devastation I've seen and heard on the news??? I know you called Jen earlier today (Monday 12/27, EST), so are you still okay?

We haven't connected for a while--I hope it's not too late...

I love you and you'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am terribly saddened to hear of the disaster which has struck your region. Perhaps this disaster will somehow enhance the efforts of the peacemakers in Sri Lanka.

Leah Stitz

Thomas, I was relieved to see that you are safe. I'd like to help but I'm not sure how. e-mail me and let me know, ok?

Allan Suchman

We spoke to Jenn yesterday and she told us you were okay. After seeing the devastation on the TV and reading about it in the newspapers, the four inches of snow we got last night seems like a walk in the park. Is there anything we can do to help you recover?

Thinking about you frequently,

Arlene & Allan

Marja-Leena

So glad to hear that you are safe after hearing all the devastating news, and just after my seemingly corny greeting the day before all that happened! Wishing you strength in all the work ahead.

Bryan

I'm so glad you're safe, my friend. Please continue to be well. Your work is even more needed now.

Katie Somera

My friend Thomas,
Thank God that you are safe. I have been thinking about you all weekend and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your community at this time.
Love,

Haven't turned on the computer in 5 days. We spent last night shocked by the news of the tidal waves, and debated the best way to get news of you, Brins! How great to turn on this machine tonight and discover all the news and information and concern shared by your family and friends -- and to get your personal report itself. God is good and may they all continue to reconcile us and you.

I'll begin at the end - GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT! You signed on to this project to be a peacekeeper, not a martyr!! If only 1/4 of what I read and see is true, the aftereffects of the tragedy will be much worse than the event itself. Find a way to leave now and then, if you want, go back in a month or two! If I can be of any help, let me know.

Allan

Edith Teague

Oh, Thomas, I am so glad to see that you are safe. You were the first person I thought of when I heard Sri Lanka had been one of the major countries hit by the tsunami -- how wonderful to learn that you were not a victim.

You won't listen, I'm sure, but I think Allan is right when he says to get out until the health dangers are over. You would be more help once the rebuilding starts. . .

With all good wishes,

Edee

Dona

Glad to hear you are safe, Thomas.

Melanie

Thank buddha/thecosmos/allah/god/myluckystars you are safe!!! You were the first thing I thought of today when I saw the news of SE Asia. I am so relieved that you have had access to the internet to let everyone know you are OK.

Now... I think you should set up a bank account for yourself and your needs. You can set up an account that is for donation only and provide us with the information we need to send you money.

You can also post the name and address of the relief organization that is most directly tied to efforts in your area.

Please do this for us Thomas, I'm sure I'm not the only one who would like to see you (and your community) get the emergency supplies. Other than your worldly goods (which we can help you replace) you will need clean drinking water, food, clothing, etc.

It is the least any of us can do.

Charles

Very relieved to get positive news of you, Thomas. Prayers and peace-wishes. -- Hipbone.

I am glad you are safe. I cannot image what it must be like there, sitting here in my safe little house in my safe little country.

hugs to you t!

Grant

I never thought the man I met in Toronto years ago would see things washed away in a place as far off as Sri Lanka! I am greatful you are alright Thomas. Take care.

Jim Parker

It seems that there is never a tradegy that doesn't have a personal edge these days. Thank goodness you are safe. I have felt to blessed to have you in my life and your safety is yet another blessing.

Scott Butki

Glad to hear you are safe but sorry
to hear about the computer,
Thomas
