Earthquake News

Japan Earthquake, 3/11/11

My husband woke me up during the night to the news.  I am still in shock.  Watching the tsunami wave brought tears to my eyes.  Please pray for the people of Japan in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy.  The earthquake was north of our area of service.  

I have a dear missionary friend in Tokyo.  God spared her and she is home safe now.  Her home was not damaged, but things are broken inside.  I am so thankful that she is safe.  My husband’s younger brother is in Tokyo working.  He is safe and due to fly back to the states Saturday.  We are unsure right now if that will happen.  We believe a national pastor and his wife are in the air on their way to the USA.  That’s the safest place to be during an earthquake.  Another dear pastor’s wife emailed me to let me know they are safe.  Our hearts ache for the many who are not.

A must read…

I’m not trying to turn this into a political blog, but here is something that is a must read no matter what side of the political fence you are on. It can and it is happening to us.

Update: This bloggers account has been suspended. hmmmmm…… Here is the link for Glenn Beck’s discussion of the article. I wouldn’t recommend clicking on the link for the original article as the advertisements are terrible.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.”
~I Timothy 2:1

Signs of the Times

This blog is not political in nature and I do not want it to be. Every now and then something comes up that can’t be ignored. We’ve heard the news media and people call our new president their messiah. Some have called him the anti-christ. One thing that I have realized as events have unfolded in the last few months is how easy it will be for anti-christ to come. Today this article was brought to my attention: Radio chip coming soon to your driver’s license? It is such a comfort to know that God is in control!

Maybe today, my Lord will come for me,
Maybe today, my Savior I shall see;
Maybe today from sin I shall be free,
Jesus will come, and I will go home,
it maybe today!
