Please Take a Moment…

Please take a moment to send a prayer and a thought from your heart toward the survivors and family and friends of everyone in the Pakistan-India region that suffered a massive earthquake today. Over 400 children were killed in two schools alone today, and the death toll will continue to rise as rescuers try to dig through the rubble to find survivors. So much sorrow in a region that already lives through an enormous amount of conflict and difficulty every day. My sympathies to those who have lost, and my profound hope for good news for those who are waiting through the long night tonight and in the days to come.
