Japan earthquake


Recommended Posts

My cousin is over there in the Marines. His family was notified that he is OK, but out of communication for a while because of conditions and assisting in the emergency response. Aparently no US service men or women were in the worst affected areas at the time.

One of my friends from collage, mid 1960's, was a missionary to that part of Japan until 2001 and now retired to USA but still has many friends and some family, grand-daughter I think, in that area doing church work. I emailed him but haven't heard back from him. That is bad stuff with the power plants though. Dangerous stuff that nuclear power plants, earthquakes and tsunamis. I pray that they get it all under control sooner than later. I thought that there was one person swept out to sea in Crescent City and drowned. If that is true I pray that their family finds some peace also the folks in Hawaii. There has been a lot of seismic activity in the Pacific Basin in the last few months. I have e-mail friends from New Zealand but they were far away from the quake there. Also had e-mail friends in Chile that survived that country's quake. Not an experience I want to go through. May God watch over us all in times of disaster.
