I don’t really have anything to say on my own account tonight. I found a ladder leading up to the roof on the side of the building from our back patio. So, I decided to climb up it to our roof. It was great…here are some pictures:
Enjoy those. Also, Taka, Samantha and I had dinner at Quixote restaurant. Yoshio was very glad to see us.
I came home to find news of an earthquake in the southwest of China. It was pretty massive, in case you haven’t heard. I know some folks from that area, so I feel connected to it, also, I had worked just south of there when I was there a few years back. The biggest thing that I can see prayer for are the 900-some middle school students who have been buried under their three-story school building. Pray for their safety and recovery. I’m just so sad about this. China will always be dear in my heart…I’m thankful that it happened further away from the Three Gorges Dam, as if that had been damaged so many more would be in danger from flooding. Also, with the Olympics coming up in Beijing, they will not likely withhold details of this disaster for fear of criticism, but also in hopes of encouraging sympathy. Keep these people in your prayers. Many are not likely Christians. I don’t even know what else to say.
