As those of you in New Zealand will know, we had a rather large earthquake yesterday. My family and I are fine and extremely lucky - we still have power and water. Many, very many, still do not have water, and maybe only half of the city has had power restored.
There are still some trapped in the rubble of the CBD, and yet more people have lost their homes, over and above those who lost their houses in the September 4th quake.
It happened at lunch time, just after I had sent most of the class outside - all of our kids were fine, but our grounds have suffered from the effects of liquefaction.
Please pray for those still trapped and those who have lost love ones,
