Thank G-d you guys are OK and doing amazing job! Tzippy and Shmulik, you guys are truly incredible people- young, energetic, enthusiastic- I saw first hand the amazing work you were doing in Christchurch, before the devestation hit! You know there was a level of danger in the work you were doing, but you didn't give it a second though, because you had your eyes on the goal! you knew there was work to do, and nothing got in your way!

The buildings in christchurch might have fallen, lives tragically lost- but Thank G-d you guys are OK and will only go on to bigger and better things!!! Reply
