Pray for my family in Chile!

Saturday, February 27, 2010

We woke up this AM to horrible news of an 8.8 on the richter scale that hit parts of Chile where my brother-in-law has a lot of family and friends. My brother-in-law is my sister's husband and I love him dearly. He has been a part of my life since I was 4 years old. He took myself and my DH to Santiago, Chile just last summer in June to meet his family that we had never met. The most amazing country and people you'd ever want to meet!

Please pray for our family and friends who are in the area where the most devastation has occurred.

May our Lord watch over these people and help them to recover from this. Also pray for those who may have repercussions in other countries from this.

Love to all of my SP Friends and Family

    Update on family in Chile from one of my brother-in-law's brothers:

Family in the US: we are ok, no injuries, only things broken. But it's gonna take time to come back to normal. The international airport is closed for the coming 72 hrs; no road traffic at all to southern Chile for at least two more days. But we are ok, and thatīs the important thing.

Thank you to all of my wonderful and caring and loving SP Buddies!!!

    I saw the news this morning.... your family and friends along with the rest of the people in Chile are in my prayers. Have you been able to contact anyone or have you heard from your family yet to know if they are all safe and ok?
