Update and Prayer Request: Earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand
We have had some contact with James Moore who has just moved back to Christchurch, New Zealand, to recommence his university studies. He found himself in the middle of the disaster that took place yesterday in Christchurch. He is safe and well, but is asking for our prayers for protection, and more generally for the people in Christchurch. There are members of various Churches of God in Christchurch and we are asking that prayers be made for their safety as well.
James is a part of the Civil Defence program (somewhat equivalent to the State Emergency Services here in Australia) and therefore he is involved in the recovery process. Our prayers for all who are being affected would be much appreciated at this time.
James Moore attended our youth Summer Camp in Australia. He has been in contact with Steve Clark (Summer Camp Director) who sent this to us.
