My brother has been teaching in Japan for nearly two years now. After the earthquake struck, we didn't hear from him for 2 days...here is the email we later received after him touching base with us that he was okay.
"Hi, Family,
It's now 11 am, about 72 hours after the quake. I'm back at school. Teachers have been split into 4 shifts, to cover all day & night. About 20 people are living in the gym, another 50 come at mealtimes, & a hundred or so are sleeping here. I have been told to work my normal hours, 8-4 pm, students are off until next Tues. School has power and water. My apt still has no water. Makie's parents are out in the suburbs and have no utilities. She and I are fighting a lot, as she is torn between wanting to be near me and them at the same time. The aftershocks don't help, as every time it shakes again, we fear the Big Aftershock everyone keeps warning might happen. The quake was scary, but manageable for us. It's everything after that is the real disaster. Love you, Gabe

Pray for everyone affected by this tragedy
