That's what friends are for.

The earthquake that shook Costa Rica like a boat at high tide on Jan. 8, was big news all over Central America. Several of our friends in Honduras emailed to make sure we were okay. Liliana, our beloved Spanish teacher, even called us that night. We felt so loved, and we were so grateful to be able to say, "We're okay!"

Another friend, Carlos, called tonight, because he'd heard that there had been other earthquakes. While that's true, the recent quakes have been so much less severe that we look at each other and say, "Did you feel that or did I imagine it?" But it still means so much to us that Carlos and other friends like him are thinking of us!

We are thankful for every one of our wonderful friends who are praying for us. May the Lord bless you for your faithfulness!
