Praying for those we know and all others who are affected by the New Zealand Earthquake.

Maureen,

I am praying too.  I have two friends in Christchurch and have heard from one.

He sent me this link to his paper.

Alison's up-close pictures gave me chills.  What horrendous devestation!  Thanks for sharing that with us.  They're more realistic than others I've seen.

May God have mercy on them.

I spoke to my friend today on the phone.  He said that the phone has been restored, the power is on.  He has cold running water again and has the ability to use his facilities.  I know it is different for everyone there, but he says it is encouraging to see things start to come back on.

Interesting reading - and may be important to everyone of us someday.
