We Can’t Forget New Zealand

The death toll has risen today to 146 with 200 people still missing.

New Zealand’s premier said the Christchurch quake may be the country’s worst disaster ever, as officials raised the toll to 146 dead and more than 200 missing while giving a grim prognosis for the city’s downtown.  Residents said prayers for the dead and missing at church services Sunday in Christchurch and across New Zealand. But church leaders canceled a planned multi-denominational service in a Christchurch park because of concerns it could block access roads for emergency services.

There’s lots going on in the world, but New Zealand still deserves our thoughts, and for those who do, prayers.

  1. I just found out today, that one of my wife’s friends children is missing in Christchurch. We did not even know they were there? Some school extension thing.
