By now, everyone has heard of the earthquake in China. Words cannot express how saddened we are by the devastation.

We also heard from a friend of ours who returned to China on Sunday. He is from Sichuan. His family is safe but he mentions that many people are now homeless and/or have lost loved ones. Such a terrible tradegy.

I'm glad to hear that your friend & his family are okay. I can't imagine how awful it must be in China right now.
