His family is fine, they don't live near the affected areas. Our friends in Tokyo are also ok and we've talked to them online.
We pray for all the families who have lost someone, for all the families who have been displaced, for all those who are suffering.
We pray that relief efforts can continue and those missing can be found soon. We pray that the nuclear power plants can be taken care of safely. We pray that all the effort and organization that Japan has always put into preparing for disasters pays off now.
Our hearts are with you.
If you'd like to help, here are some organizations that are working with relief efforts.
The Red Cross
Save the Children
International Medical Corps
Doctors Without Borders
