An urgent request ...


Would you please keep my daughter, Nichelle and her team in your thoughts and prayers today? There was a 7.6 earthquake in Indonesia today. This is a new one apart from the one that hit the American Samoa yesterday. Not exactly the news I wanted to wake up to. I've been trying to give myself a quick geography lesson on Indonesia. Apparently, the quake hit on the island of Sumatra, on the western side near the town of Padang. The last email I got from Nichelle, she said they were getting ready to head back out to Pontianak, which is on the western coast of Borneo. So, the island of Sumatra is in between the two places. However, the American Samoa quake did cause a tsunami that hit all the way up in Japan, and even though I'm reading the warnings have been lifted for Indonesia and Malaysia ... well, I'm not doing so good. I know what they're doing with Youth With A Mission is important, but I just want her home. So, if you could please keep Nichelle and her team in your thoughts and prayers, I'd appreciate it more than anything. Thanks.

  2. I've got Nichelle and you in my prayers.

    Being a Mom is so TOUGH we worry so much about our "kids" and it never changes no matter how old they are.

  3. I will definitely keep her in my prayers. My husband was in Honduras when Hurrican Mitch hit. His mom was frantic, she said. I didn't know him then, but it was possible he could have died, and she had no way of knowing.

    Prayers are with her, I promise! *HUGS*

  7. When I heard about the earthquake, the first person I thought of was Nichelle. Then I thought of you guys, going crazy at home and wondering if she's okay.

    Nichelle is in my thoughts & prayers, Rena. Hold tight.
