Praying for Japan

If you haven't heard already, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake hit Japan triggering some pretty heavy-duty tsunamis. The tsunami hit Hawaii and is now headed for the Oregon, Washington, and California coasts--my understanding is that no major damage was done in Hawaii and that most of the cities in the danger zones along the west coast have already been evacuated {we live hours in-land from the Oregon coast for anyone curious}. Anyway, the damage done appears to be devastating.

This is particularly close to our hearts because Justin's uncle, aunt, and cousins live in Kobe, Japan. I haven't heard anything about Kobe in the news, so I'm hoping they're all okay. I know my brother is also thinking of his host families in Japan.

I really have no words...but my heart is heavy for everyone affected.


  1. I know the feeling, with many family, friends and co-workers in the area of recent devastation, it is hard not to get choked up. Praying for everyone involved and surrounding the Pacific Rim.

  2. I found about it early in the morning
    and still can not believe it. it's frightening.
    I just don't undesrtand how the world still underestimates the power and fury of Mother Nature, how can we be indifferent to so many demonstrations of it.
    It's time to change the way we live, it's time to do something about it.
    and it's time to pray for Japan, and the Pacific Coast.

  3. Praying for sure. I haven't tuned into the news yet today, but I received several calls because my mom flew to Oahu a few days ago for vacation. Thank goodness the worst is over for the islands, but sadly that's not true for Japan. Hopefully Justin's family is OK!
