Several of our friends have asked about Andrew’s family in New Zealand after hearing the news of the earthquake last night. If you’ve not seen the reports, here are a couple of links:
The good news is that Andrew’s family, his mum, dad, sister, brother and grandma, are all fine. Andrew’s family is all based in the North Island, just north of Wellington, which is about 200 miles (300 km) from Christchurch. They felt the quake but had no injuries or damage. They wrote that the quake felt to them like a ’3 or 4′ there.
But there is major damage and many deaths in Christchurch, in the South Island.
Thank you for your prayers and concerns on our behalf, and for the people in the South Island of New Zealand.
