From the Frontlines in China

I have a friend who works as a college professor for English Language Institute China (ELIC), an organization that sends Christian teachers to Asia. Although my friend wasn't anywhere near the earthquake, she is very aware of the emotional aftershock many of her students and fellow teachers are feeling. She writes:

Thanks for lifting up (code language for "praying for") those affected by the earthquake; keep those thoughts coming. As the death toll climbs near 70,000, there is also the challenge of many living in tents struggling to meet their daily needs. Our teachers who were closest to the earthquake are on their way home; their school closed for fear of aftershocks. The director of our program and another member of ELIC, who are both licensed counselors, have been down in the quake affected area providing emergency counseling. Many of the students have been deeply affected by this tragedy. Please be covering this nation!
