7.9-magnitude earthquake in China

China has had a really bad year. The weather has been extreme, and now this earthquake. Oh my! The troubles in this world seem to mount. God protect the people. God protect the children. I know families that will be traveling soon. God bless and keep the traveling families. God protect the waiting children. God, cover all of us with your wing.

The death toll rises.

China says at least 10,000 people are dead but it expects that figure to rise. Rain is hampering the rescue and the aid efforts in worst-hit area. Nearly 900 children were buried when a school building collapses, 50 bodies have been found so far. Some of the kids have managed to pull themselves out from the rubble.
