My brother-in-law Robert, his wife Bauy, and their daughter Jade were in Thailand visiting Bauy's relatives when the earthquake and resulting tsunami hit.
While life here seemed to go on "normally," running in the background was concern for Robert and his precious family. We went about our daily business, but were waiting for The Call. We would listen to the news, but know we wouldn't find out anything specific on our loved ones.
Yesterday, Graeme got ahold of his parents in Australia and they were finally able to get through to Robert in Thailand. Robert and his family will be flying home to Australia on Friday.
I thank God for His protection over our relatives in the face of such disaster. We must continue to keep the people of Southeast Asia in our thoughts and prayers as they recover from this devastation. As our situations allow, we must send finanical and material aid.
