Joey Lamarre, a second year medical student, came home to us after living through hell in Port-au-Prince. Joey was in class last Tuesday when the earthquake happened. The walls of the medical school buckled and Joey and his classmates were buried in debris. After six hours of struggling and with the help of people outside, Joey was able to get out and help rescue some of his classmates. His professor and six classmates were killed. Joey recounted his experience to us after church this morning. It was moving to hear him and extremely sad as he told of finding his friends who did not make it.
