Earthquake in Christchurch

If you live overseas and have not heard about the earthquake here in the South Island of New Zealand, please pray.

It's devastating to watch the TV coverage and think that this is happening in our own country.

Pray that those still trapped (over a hundred people) are rescued soon.

Pray that those who have already lost loved ones (65 confirmed dead so far) find comfort somehow.

As I lay in bed last night, warm and safe, my kids tucked up and asleep, my heart was sore.
Imagine not having a place for my boys to live. Imagine not knowing if they were safe. This is what some people are facing right now.

Thinking of you and praying for you Cantabrians!
