With all that has been going on in Japan that last couple of days, I was really surprised and happy when I came across this posting on MelonHeadz. This is what Nikki from MelonHeadz posted.
Well I just had to join in on this. My family and I have been a host family to a total of 9 Japanese exchange students. In the short time that they were with us (we had short term students), we grew to feel like each and every one was a member of our family. We have 2 students that we know of whose family's live in the Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture. We have heard from one that she and her family are safe, but are still waiting and hoping to hear from the other. We have been trying to contact all of our other students to make sure that they were not in any of the areas affected by the earthquake or resulting tsunami. But we have only been able to contact a few. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the people that have been affected by this...both in Japan and outside of Japan. We pray that God will watch over those who are missing, and those who have lost relatives and friends. Please join us in posting this on your blog...they can use all the prayers they can get. And thank you Nikki for starting this prayer wave.
