It's been a week since an earthquake and resulting a tsunami devastated shores in south Asia and part of Africa.

The confirmed death toll so far is more than 123-thousand and that number is expected to climb as tens of thousands are still unaccounted for....

(( A week after a tsunami devastated South Asia- crews are doing what they can to help....
US Military helicopters ferried emergency supplies to survivors in Indonesia over the weekend.
But despite the aid, hungry refugees complained of the slow delivery process.
One of the biggest US military disaster relief missions in history moved into high gear with the arrival of the U-S-S Lincoln to the battered shores of the island of Sumatra.

Meanwhile, clean up and recovery continued throughout the region.
In Thailand - workers wore masks as they raced to clean up the carnage and debris.
In Malaysia, it was much the same, teams collected bodies and tried to do what they could to help.
The search for survivors ending, as officials said today they would turn their efforts into a recovery mission since there is little hope of finding anyone alive among the debris..
------------


One of the apparent miracles coming out of the region- an 18-month-old baby from Kazakhstan was found alive floating on a mattress in the sea off of a Thailand resort.
The little boy was said to be in good health and smiling, even though his parents both died in the disaster.

----------


But, a week after the earthquake people are trying to return to some semblance of normalcy.
Parishioners from various denominations attended church services telling stories of how they survived the tsunami and giving thanks they lived to see another day.... ))
