In Honor of Japan

I don't know about you, but the tragedy that happened in Japan is braking my heart. What I am watching on the news seems like scenes from an "end of the world" movie. Everything is going wrong.

The earthquake that happened in Haiti and the tsunami in Indonesia were terrible also. But the blow to Japan hit me hard. I guess it's because they weren't poverty stricken.

Their way of life is more like ours; I can relate to them more. I can put myself in their place, thinking what if that happened here?

I made a short slideshow in honor of Japan, and as a reminder of how terrible things are half way across the world.

Warning, it will make you cry.

Keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers.

I know! I have felt heartbroken and burdened about Japan. I wish there was something we could do.

For those that can't actually go there and help physically, the best thing I can think of to do is pray and give. We need to support those that *can* be there and are working in Japan.

yes, everytime i start feeling like i can do nothing to help, i remember that prayer is the strongest weapon. God has a plan for this whole disaster, and no matter what it is going to give him glory.

I feel really bad for the Japanese. Me and my mom saw a video of a mother who had no milk for her baby. It's just horrible what those poor people are going through. And to think of all the people who died without knowing Jesus is even worse.
