My sister Shirley-Anne in an earthquake in Japan

This is an excerpt from a family letter my sister Shirley-Anne recently wrote from Japan. May this serve as a reminder to us to pray for Japan--which, in many ways, is one of the most unreached nations in the world--and for Shirley-Anne as she seeks to be a light for God there. (She lives near Tokyo, in a little city called Nagano.)

July 19, Shirley-Anne:
"On Monday morning at around 10 I was upstairs at the piano working on a song about the majesty of God in creation when all of a sudden the church started wobbling ferociously and I thought I was in my last seconds of life. God's creation is certainly out of human control. Before I knew it I was running downstairs with my coffee cup in my hand. ...Coffee cup in hand? No, I didn't take it to drink outside in the aftermath. It was to protect the piano in case of an inevitable spill. ;) The ground was still rolling when I got outside and parked cars were dancing. Pretty frightening.

Awe-inspiring. But it calmed down after a while and we tried to get back to the business of the day. But I must admit I've been quite jumpy since then."
